I agree , the flight prices have gone mad ! I think some of the big travel agents have block booked seats on each flight therefor only dear seats left !
American holidays have good packages as they have block booked seat on most flights . hope this helps
I looked at Aer Lingus a couple of weeks ago and there were cheap flights left about 20th July, the rest were crazy tho.
Airfares from Ireland were always much cheaper than from the UK.
I checked last week and the fare with Aer Lingus from Dublin was about £300 cheaper than BA's price.
That is still a huge jump from last year. I assumed it was because I was booking so late and that they would be back down in August but perhaps this wont be the case.
Hi, try delta. I fine them very good, only thing is you have to change flights before getting to orlando. Good luck
If travelling in the peak period, book the 330 days in advance if you can. Prices tend to rise quickly for the peak/school holidays.
Also seen a tip elsewhere - book outward with Virgin via Manchester/Gatwick, and return direct with Aer Lingus, paying in US$. Seems like a good idea.
Thanks for your replies and suggestions,
This past few years have started to book with Continental around this time of year for October November time. There fares have always been brillant from Dublin to Miami 'Reterning from Orlando was £340 this past two years,
This year its gone up to £550 what a hike.
Will try some of your suggestions, Thanks.
Continental is the cheapest I could find for this July/August and I trawled through all the airlines.
The fares are still very expensive though. £3300 for 4 adults & 1 child.
We found booking direct with US Airways a lot cheaper than the rest we are travelling end of October.
Jenniparks 'I think those fares are terrible high but what do you do its a case of pay up are stay at home.
Have just found out aerlingus are going to be using Jet Blue from April 3rd to include a lot more destinations in America Dont think i can take the chance waiting that long, could end up with no flight contiental seemed to be still cheapest by far compared to everyone else
Havent tried U S airways direct ,will do that
Tried american airlines they where £400 more than Continental.
