Air fare from NYC?

Am bringing family down in March for first time visit. Got great RT fares from Tampa, but the fares from NYC are running about $485. Is this typical? What would be a good fare -- worthy of jumping on, even though we are still 4 months out?

Any other suggestions? It's almost cheaper right now to fly my kids from NY to Tampa, then from Tampa to SJ

Where are you searching? In Priceline there are direct flights from JFK to SJU in March for $285.

Make sure you are not planning to come during easter, as that is a major traveling week here, thus prices will be expensive.

2 months ago i booked RT to JFK for the second week of march for $295. Usually prices will run from $240-300 if booked at least 6mos ahead. Prices will not come down, so book asap.

Your running into a seat issue. Your too close to a date. March is a hard month to get seats. Push it off to April, you will get much better prices. Also your departure and arrival dates are key. Leave or return on a Tuesday or Wednesday, the prices drop like rocks, Never travel near a weekend. Try to find airports out from main ones. For example, if your near Pittsburgh, fly out of Latrobe, the fair drops 50%

Thanks all. We are coming week before Easter Sunday, arriving and leaving on a sat. Change in dates not an option so maybe I will look at nearby airports.
