This is a cautionary tale - you snooze you lose!

Friday afternoon (while taking a break at work! ) I spotted good flights with BA doing same route as last year GLA LGW MCO with a price that was right. Got home and flights were still there at good price. Spoke to hubby who was 'square eyed' and paid little to no attention which I took as a lack of enthusiasm.

Mentioned it again to him in the morning (Sat) and he seemed interested. I had a running event to get to so ear-marked the time when I came home to get the flights booked.

You know whats coming next...

Logged on and the price for 2 ad, 1 ch had increased by total of 500

I've checked the prices several times thereafter and absolutely nothing like the original prices is now coming up.

Aww what a shame it is pretty much how I feel after doing similar...My enthusiasm as gone at the minute. I am hoping Christmas sales may bring some decent prices

Can anyone who has previously flown direct from Manchester to MCO in September, give me an idea of what a decent price for the flight, for two adults should/would be?

At present I have no idea what I sort of price I should be aiming for.

Thanks in advance for any guidance offered.
Exactly the same for us. We usually book a package so Id be interested to know too...

Having monitored / stalked prices obsessively for the last 6 months, seeing them creep up, I really can't wait to get mine booked for September and start of October next year. Might have to try and hold out for either October sales this year possibly Christmas. That being said, prices in April this year for this September were really good, so everything is in the air 😤😫

My booking window opens tomorrow. Looking at the flights today (returning the day before we need), they have increased a lot between this morning and this afternoon.

Big problem though - DDs boss has still not approved her leave. Apparantly he disappeared to Scotland to go fishing without telling anyone, so might be days now before we get it approved.

So if there's a bargain, I wont be able to book it

Is it for the school holidays or would you be going out of the school holidays. Our first trip we paid 1400-1500 the flights were either side of the school holidays and that was for 2 ad and 3 children. So you can get them really cheap you are flexible

Lufthansa has some deals on flights from Manchester indirect if you can fly with handluggage. I was very tempted but Im still keeping fingers crossed for BA from Newcastle.
