Will fares for june flights to belfast be reduced at any time?

Hello,
My friend and I plan on flying to Belfast (N.I) from Newark from june 19th-28 so far the air fare is about 833 dollars with fees... i was wondering if there was a time where those prices may be reduced?

Thank you!

I would post this on the Air Travel Board and the Europe Board. Look above to Select Your Forum.

FYI: Aer Lingus is having a sale now for flights through June 15th. Can you move your travel dates? You'd have to fly to Dublin but there's a great bus that goes straight from the airport to Belfast--about a 2 hour trip. (My daughter did this several times when she was doing a semester abroad in Belfast.)

April and May are pricing at 600 to 700. Perhaps they haven't put the sale prices up for June, yet? Or maybe late June gets into high season and prices go up.

From my experience Continental rarely reduce prices from Newark to Belfast and it is always late!

I agree with trying Aer Lingus to Dublin or one of the many airlines that fly to London. From London it is a short flght to Belfast with one of the low cost airlines - Easyjet or Flybe (Gatwick) and Aer Lingus (Heathrow)

With the price of oil going up I don't think that you are going to see discounts for summer international travel this year!

Every single year people on this board warn that there will be no discounts on summer international travel and every single year I get a discount in late February or into March. I may be wrong and dutyfree may be right but I am going by 10 year's worth of summer travel to Europe.
