"Good" price for airfare from YYZ?

Hi

Our family of four is considering a trip to St. Lucia in the end of June for one week. For those who regularly travel to St. Lucia, what would be considered a "good" price for RT airfare, per person out of Toronto?

$450 pp all in - it's usually over $500 pp, though in June 2011, I lucked-out and got seats for my wife and I for $356 ea, including all taxes, etc, through Tripcentral.ca

We only fly Air Canada or Westjet and each flight in January 2012 (Air Canada) and in February 2014 (Westjet) cost us approx $1600 all in. This is high season so likely a higher fare than in June.

There is likely savings to be had if choosing a charter or a connecting flight, but we will only fly direct and I choose our flights based on time of arrival.

I am in Rochester (about 3 hours from Toronto). We had a connection, and I was ecstatic to find air from here to St Lucia for $638pp. Just to give you an idea of what people are paying.

Our trip to St Lucia a few years ago, we paid well over $700pp.

I'm flying out of YYZ direct on West Jet at end of June and paid $600+. This is about average. I usually travel to St Lucia the same time every year and have paid around this much each time whether on Air Canada or West Jet.

Airfare still seems to be about $600-$650 per person, depending on the carrier. Hoping to wait it out and get one of the $450 fares mentioned above!

sometimes you're better off taking a package deal - air + hotel
