Tuesdays still the best day to buy?

2 weeks ago I purchased 4 RT tickets, nonstop on Airtran, from MKE to CUN for June 7-14 at the price of $539/ea. My daughter wants to join us so I would like to purchase a ticket for her on the same flights. The RT fare is now $775.00! Each time I check I have been clearing my cookies before hand.

Is Tuesday/Wednesdays still the best day(s) to buy? Or am I stuck with either the high fare or possibly her taking another airline (all with stops=all day travel) most likely out of ORD due to comparable flight times, meaning we would drive her to ORD and then book it up to MKE for our flight out.

Any chance the cost will come down?

It's unlikely the fare will be lower. Supply and demand is the rule. The flight is getting more full, so the price is going up.
