I am starting to stress a tad over airfare deals from LAS to NYC. My partner and I are doing a trip throughout the USA and Mexico and this leg of our trip is the last one we need to book. We are looking for a direct flight from LAS to NYC (any airport) leaving around 7ish in the morning. The day is a Friday and the date is the 12 August 2011. I know Fridays are a more expensive day to fly, but we need to arrive in NYC before the 13th because we are celebrating our anniversary there and we cant leave vegas until after the 11th, because the 11th is his birthday! Currently the cheapest flights that leave Vegas in the morning and arrive in NYC in the afternoon are Delta ($293.00) and Continental/United ($305 into Newark). Being from Australia, I have no idea what a good value for money flight is... but from looking at other months and reading posts on here, this does appear to be quite high. Does anyone have any advice on whether I should snap them up (I have had a look at the seat maps and both planes appear to be empty!) or wait a little while longer? I have had a look at closer months and the Continental flight gets down to 150 - 190 in June... I haven't seen the Delta flight for too much lower than what it is now. Is August a predominately more expensive time to travel? I am starting to see some sale flights come out for this time, but they are all for late night/early morning flights with layovers.... Any advice/comment would be greatly appreciated!
