Is this a good fare ??

Traveling from PIT-AMS AMS-TPA $769 on CO Sept. 6-13.
I've never done this sort of multi-city travel, should I be paying more because of this? A R/T from TPA-AMS AMS-TPA is more expensive for the same dates! Should I jump on this fare? Thanks!

I think that a lot of "us" ("veterans"?) give somewhat jaded answers to questions like this - - I predict that 1-3% of the seats on exactly this routing, exactly these dates might get seats at $100 (or more) cheaper - - but then, "we" are accustomed to getting those 1-3 percentage odds fares.

I think it's a good fare - - and waiting another month could leave you facing nothing below $900 for September dates, the way fares are going this year.

Best wishes,

Rex

Thanks Rex and I know it's a loaded question but I'm just looking for all those educated opinions out there!

Hi irish,

Isn't that a fairly expensive way to get from Pittsburgh to Tampa?

$769 is a good price if it includes taxes, etc.

The fare is inclusive of taxes ect. and is still availible. Yes it is certainly not the most direct way to Tampa from Pittsburgh but a lot more fun!

Hi Irish,

I would take it.

Ticket prices are higher than last year.

In June 2004, the tickets for my trip in the Fall were about $625.

This year, the lowest was in Feb for $730. They are now $835.
