Boston-Savannah Easter weekend - air fare tips

Sticker shock for airfare Boston-Savannah weekend of April 14. Realizing that it is Easter, Passover, school vacation week in Massachusetts, Patriots Day in Massachusetts - still can't believe fares starting at $367.

Have tried Expedia et al, individual airlines, and even flying from Manchester. About to give up and stay home - and forget using my FF miles - every airline wants me to use 50,000 miles. Anything I may have missed?

It's a small airport. Sometimes that is just the way it is. You could look on Priceline or Hotwire. You can bid on flights without accepting the bid now, in one area of PL.

If you don't mind driving a little, you could try flying into Jacksonville, Florida. If you don't mind driving a lot, you could fly into Atlanta.

One option would be flying into Atlanta and getting an AirTran flight to Savannah. Not sure that's worth it for a weekend.

Gretchen is right - it's a small airport without a lot of flight options.

I checked AirTran's site directly. You can get in and out at under $300 almost all the time - except that weekend. You'd have to fly into Savannah on the 11th (Tuesday) to get into town but the fare would be around $220. Don't know why everything else is booked - but it seems to be.

Thanks - will check Jacksonville. Am still afraid of Priceline for air although I use them for hotels - still have this vision of flying to 12 cities in 24 hours to get to my destination.
