To book or not to book that is the ?

Aloha,

Just booked our vacation rental for September and have started checking flights. Right now we can get a R/T non stop flight on Continental for $650pp. I know it's more than six months out so I don't know if rates will go down closer to our dates. Should we book now or wait?

Wow, that is a hard call! Usually as the date gets closer the prices go higher not lower. Maybe someone who flys from your area can chime in on what they think of the price.

By closer I mean like maybe 6-8 weeks before.

If that is from NYC, jump on that baby. I usually pay more than that going from Honolulu to Colorado with a stop on the west coast. I would be shocked if you find anything much cheaper.

That's the non-stop out of NJ... I too think it's a FANTASTIC deal and I would lock that in!

Did you check the new Hawaiian Airlines non-stop out of JFK?

Whatever you decide, please don't wait until 6 weeks before to get a flight... it has been my experience that they only get more and more costly...

All the best!

anything below 800 for the east coast is worth grabbing. Jump on it!

Sounds awesome to me. I'm flying out of Knoxville, TN in May to Flagstaff AZ and it was $505. per person.

I checked the flights the other day to see if they had changed...they did, now they're up to $535.80 pp...... so, we saved $30. per person by booking early..

I personally don't think you'll see lower rates.

Be safe and have F U N !

That's a great price from the east coast especially for a non stop book now!
