BOS Airfare Alert for 2015 April Vacation!

Just looked today for fares for vacation week April 2015 4/17-4/25 - and FIRST class is currently selling for the same as Economy on Delta out of Boston Logan. Both fares are $827. Yes this is a pricey fare but not in the context of school vacation week. All other fares I've seen have been $900 -$1200 or higher and I check pretty frequently. (Not that I have a problem or anything - LOL.) Please note these are good itineraries - only 1 stop - on STT by early afternoon, depart STT early afternoon. Maybe I will see some fellow forumites on the plane next April? Cheers!

I checked the United fares for April 2015 and found a non stop from Newark for $613 with the return trip up front. I had a voucher to use so I jumped on it. I'll upgrade the first leg using miles. Thanks for the alert.

Our AA flight last April was $35 more for first class so of course we booked that fare. I wish that was the case for my Oct. trip. Sitting in coach after 3 first class trips is going to be hard :)

Thanks for the information! What site or airlines did you book that first class ticket with?

Thank you!

@ Kate PB15 - I found it at Delta.com. I just did a quick check again and the fares are still valid today. $827 for both First and Economy. Full disclosure - these are Maine school vacation dates which are usually the same as Mass. You may want to double check the dates for Mass for sure before booking.

I just booked this morning and got great rates (not direct - one stop) going 4/20 to 4/27 for less than $400 each on Delta. Good times, too.

Great, thank you both! Delta is the only way to go, in my experience anyway... As I currently "rest" in a Philly airport hotel after 6 hours of delays then finally a canceled connecting us Airways flight to STT :(

We are going to be flying from Boston 4/18 - 4/25. First time during school vacation week. Are the prices currently available typical? In the past we've paid far less. Always 500 or less.

I don't think you will find first class travel for $500. Coach yes.

We booked in May for a little over $400 BOS-MIA- STX.

Lowest we have ever paid.

Sorry, should have been more clear - was just referring to airfare in general, not first class. Am trying to figure out if it is worth it to wait for lower fares a bit closer to April, perhaps this Fall, or whether the rates I am seeing now are not likely to drop.
