since my son went away to school 10 years ago in FL and decided to stay there...we have booked around Thanksgiving and Christmas many times...flights are high, since the airlines know people are traveling thenDh and I started looking at flights to Iowa for Christmas and OMG are they expensive. I have no idea what we're going to end up doing, but I have never in my life paid $153 PER PERSON for a one way ticket. That's with Allegiant and doesn't include bags or seats. It's nonstop which is great, but holy cow. It would end up being like $700 for the two of us. I have a feeling other airlines would be even more. I'm tempted to tell people, "Sorry, we're coming two weeks before Christmas."
I am fortunate and have a lot of SW points so I book him as soon as the schedule opens and if he can’t make the trip with his work schedule, .it’s easy to cancel and get the points back
If I’m remembering correctly...SW isn’t an option for you
