I will be on holiday in Greece next September and intended returning to the UK during the week commencing 12th September. However, the BA flights have gone on sale at a ridiculously high price about 3 times what I expected to pay. The week before and the week after are reasonably priced, at more or less what I had expected. I can't work put why this should be the case as there doesn't appear to be a major event in Athens at that time. I feel I've made a real mistake with the timing of my holiday and am faced either with stumping up the equivalent of a return transatlantic fare for a one way trip within Europe or staying in Athens for another 5 days or so.
If anyone knows why there is this inexplicable rise in the fares for one week only I would love to know.
