We have a trip planned for July and I have been religiously tracking the fares since this time last year. SInce I've been tracking prices for so long (and we made this trip year before last), I knew the rate that I was hoping to pay. I also knew that our flight was most likely going to require 2 plane changes.
Over the weekend, a flight appeared with only 1 plane change (yay!) both ways and a price that I was very happy with. I should have booked immediately, but I needed to run it by my husband and I also thought that maybe the price would drop a bit after the weekend. Big mistake...it went up from $599 per person to nearly $900.
My question is...since I'm looking so far out, do you think it will go back down to something more reasonable. The flights with multiple plane changes hardly jumped in price at all. I can't figure out why only this one did. Since I'm a newbie to airline travel, I didn't know if it was typical for a flight to make such a huge price jump after just "hitting the screen" as being available.
