Yes, flying is getting more expensive all the time. It is outrageously expensive. In order to get the best deals though, you have to plan in advance and fly on least traveled days, etc. and you can sometimes get some pretty good deals. I check the prices of tickets on line and move the days and times around that I am willing to fly and sometimes it makes a big difference in price.

your right of course but i'm had a real time crunch with the xlsing of the new home we bought and i'm going for my mother in laws gall bladder surgery so that only leaves certain dates..if it was vacation i could be more flexable..and since we bought a fixer upper vacactions will be on hold for a while yet lol..
