UA Manchester to washington flight costs

I'm looking at flights from Manchester UK to washington DC for July 14. They are priced around £850 at the moment. Is this the usual sort of cost please or would I be better waiting a while before booking?

Nobody knows. Summer is peak time but the route has very limited competition so UA can charge what they like.

"Usual sort of cost" in past years is not necessarily any sort of indication for 2014. What prices have you found on other airlines, even with connections? It seems a bit early to buy, but if someone says they can predict what prices will be (go up or down), they're not right-- they're guessing (maybe an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless). What are the dates involved?

Whilst I do not know what will happen to prices in the future the flights for July 2014 will have only recently gone on sale and in my experience that's when they tend to be expensive.

I think £850 is high for that route and would definitely wait before buying - UA are offering that route for £419 in Jan 2014, £430 in March 2014 and £481 in May 2014.

Whilst there is no guarantee that fares for July 2014 will fall to this level there is every chance, in my opinion, of them being less than £850.
