Hey anyone have info on RT air from Atlanta to BZE in May for around $500? I've been searching and even doing creative juggling for 2 months but can't seem to get below around $630. Wanna book our room at Xanadu soon but waiting to get the air tix first---suggestions?

<carefully not thinking about the plane dunkings from mainland to SP> :rolleyes:

Carib,

Ohhh I can feel your pain! I've been looking for airfare from Dayton or Columbus, and the best I can come up with is $603. AND ... since that is a flight that connects in Atlanta, I just checked our Delta, and got $529 from there down. (they only fly on Sat so that may not work for you.) For us ok, going 5/14-5/28 no matter what - but still waiting it out ticket wise.

Good luck on your search laugh

I went right to the source, sometimes I forget to do that laugh Delta.com

I'm fortunate to have a FF miles, so we're needing only one, not quite so bad.

Not sure about fees and taxes, but figure that orbitz, travelocity, etc would be the same deal.

Carib traveler is off and running! Look at the smoke coming up from that keyboard ...

USAIRWAYS is $418RT from ATL to BZE. Add $96.00
for taxes, fees and Exit tax and you have a total
of $514.00. That is flying Monday thru Thurs.
Go to USAIRWAYS and check "price" then select your date. That price is good for March and April. Better get them pretty soon though, they will probably increase shortly. Have fun living
the dream!

I remember my first trip down in '99 - $1800CDN for each ticket. Best I ever paid was $275US one way from Toronto in 2001.

Whoa!! That's terrible Simon. In '99, my fare was only around $800 Cdn.

If you are flexible on your dates Travelocity has RT for $368.15 including all taxes for early May travel.

I was coming for the millenium and no one (on the mainland) would take a booking without confirmation of a plane ticket so I ended up having to book in April and paid a disgusting amount for tickets.

Yeesh, yes, that was a disgusting amount.

In any event, for others interested, if you are flexible in your travel dates, you can often get tickets for less, by travelling mid-week. Sometimes, even on a Friday, instead of Sat/Sun.
