Hoping i can get some help from the Los Angeles area people. Been to PV 4 or 5 times over the past few years and have always gone March or October. this year considering the week over new years(12/28 to 1/4) so we could bring our kids who will be on school break. Problem is flight prices. Previous visits ranged from $360 to $450 for direct flights. For flights for the dates above we are looking at anywhere from $700 and up and these are with a layover. my question is this--is this the pricing i should expect over the Christmas/new years time frame?Is this in the range of what others paid last year or this year? Should i expect a price drop at some point? i see flights one week later are substantially less. Just looking for any info that you can provide.
