Extreme change in London flight prices?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to the UK the first week of June and have been watching the flight prices for a while, and it's consistently been about $2700 from PHL to LHR for 3 tickets. The flat I'm renting is booked and other things I had to arrange, but because of the cost I had to wait to book flights until now. Just went to book them today and the total cost has gone up by about $2,000! The price is now $4,324 for 3 tickets. I'm shocked as I've never seen *that* much of a price increase in a week's time.

Does anyone know if there was something going on where overseas flight costs have increased this much?

The trip dates can't be rearranged (we're going over for a specific event) or I'd go at a cheaper time. I know prices are unpredictable, but it's been a while since I've traveled overseas and can't remember how far out I booked the tickets last time. I'm wondering if I waited if the price would likely go down, but also scared if I wait much longer it might actually go up...

Thanks.
