I'm watching fares with Aer Lingus for next year. Plans are to fly in LHR-SFO mid June economy with exit seat upgrade if I can bag one, and return from Orlando 3 weeks later (business) as we are travelling around and our final destination is New Orleans. Until yesterday flights back from Orlando business were fairly affordable coming in about £750 which I was prepared to pay. When I checked last night the business fares have shot up, it's actually cheaper to fly business flex than business.
Doing a search this morning, if I wanted to fly from orlando in 2 weeks times the fare is £881 business as opposed to £1421 for next June. (However the flight out would be a ridiculous £2600!)
It now looks like the cheapest option returning is via Boston, but this would mean catching a horrendous connecting flight from MSY, the day before,and there is only one direct flight with South West, or Delta, paying hefty baggage fees and leaving at something like 6am.
Any ideas please?
