Yikes! Price difference in new flights!

We paid 3600 for 6 of us to fly with TC leaving Glasgow on the 10th August next year. Went into Virgin today to see how much theyd quote us and said that we could be flexible on the dates and was quoted 5500! Nearly 2000 extra. Will definitely be waiting to see if they come down but its so annoying that we were all booked and sorted and now its not even certain well be going unless the prices settle.

It's such a shame Princesa.I hope you can go.

We also had Thomas Cook flights and thought we would have to cancel our holiday next April as flight prices were so high after TC collapsed.
I found some Virgin flights through KLM which ended up being actually cheaper than our TC ones, same dates, same airport.
Keep looking on Skyscanner and on KLM, Air France etc and let's hope they come down. Ours were twice the price a hour before and a lot more later, so perhaps sometimes there are random drops in price?
Good luck.

It'll calm down, its just all customers moving flights to other carriers that have already made plans.

About an hour to an hour and a half but could be more if traffic is bad. Tampa airport is lovely and i think we've flown there about the last 4 or 5 times. Hope you find something.

You got direct August flights with TC for 400pp? Yikes. My September TC flights were over 500pp so you got an amazing original deal there, which I fear you won't be able to get anywhere near with other flights 900pp for direct August flights, that Virgin have quoted you, is probably the going rate.
