Totally.

BA are at present, knowingly releasing those flights when the rivals have not yet entered the market. They are aware of their currently great protection terms and also that they have 2 years of pent up demand driving the market.
If you had the only ticket in town, would you sell it at discount?

My advice if budget matters, is to wait until all of the hats are in the ring at 330 .. and then maybe a few weeks more.

Not had chance to read all of this thread so apologies if this has been covered but I am looking for a car and flight package (i have a 350 voucher from BA) for the summer hols but their prices are still ridiculous! I paid 2700 for 4 of us and car hire for october this year but it's coming out at around 5k for the summer! Will these prices drop?

Yes itís grim but consensus seems to be that BA are super high at the moment because they release flights earlier than everyone else so have a monopolyÖ..they may come down after September when there is more competition?

looking at birmingham "up" the best we found for 4 adults was 2800 tui glasgow to MLB direct 8th august to 22nd. ghost flights were more expensive.

virgin had a glasgow flight late august for 13 nights but i cant remember date. it was 3k though.

these are flight only.

My dates for direct are available on BA and have been for a few days.
At over £5000 return for my family of 5 is too much.
I have been waiting for the BA and AA code share to be available at 331/330 days. I was hoping to get indirect with
US connection under £4000, hopefully closer to £3500

But then after putting the wrong dates in and using late June instead of late July for dummy booking I found direct out for 400 and return around 300. This bringing direct in at just over £3500.

I now don't know what's going on. I thought I'd be booking indirect as soon as my return date is available but I'm now wondering if direct will go down if I wait a few extra weeks.

Jolou your probably right. I think looking at so many options is melting my brains.
