It depends. Where are you flying from? Are you talking about early December or over the holidays? Charter or scheduled air? Consolidator fare?

I got tickets this past January from Houston for $400 by bidding on Priceline. Of course I didn't know what our schedule or airline would be until the bid was accepted, but I was not worried about that because I know they use US carriers. Our flight ended up being on American and had a very decent schedule.

we bought our tickets from Phila. for $600. Our travel agent said that was a good price. Cheaper or same that they could get it for.

I'm curious about airfare also. We have a timeshare reserved to Cancun over Thanksgiving - Air from Portland, OR is $839 right now - Is that a little high? Any idea? Also, being over a Holiday wasnt sure if it will stay that high? - Guess its a crap shoot huh?
If anyone has any insights or has booked from Portland it might help!
Thanks,
Cindy

We used a consolidator (Mars Travel) last year for the four of us. Newark - SJO $505.00 each total with fees and taxes. They have a website www.flycheapol.com. It was almost $400.00 less each than direct with Continental.

Exact travel dates are 11/22 - 11/29 - Sat to Sat over Thanksgiving - might be the hitch on the $834 airfare!
Any idea how crazy busy it might be during that time? - As busy as Christmas time?
