Just a little anecdotal evidence if you’re thinking about booking holiday flights. I know we still have to get through Thanksgiving to get to Christmas, but for the first time in years (think Independence Air years), MrsMJ and I are flying during the holidays. A few days ago it became apparent that we were going to need to be in multiple places this year, so I shopped for flights on a whim.

Our routing needs are:

  • Atlanta – Raleigh
  • Raleigh – Tampa
  • Tampa – Atlanta

I didn’t expect positive results given the bit of shopping I’ve been doing to get us to Quantum of the Seas over the Thanksgiving weekend, but I was pleasantly surprised. Leaving a couple days before the big day, and returning the Sunday after, I was able book this for $300 and change per person with Delta. As far as I’m concerned, that’s pretty darn good. This isn’t meant to promise any deals, but simply serve as a heads up. Start shopping for flights now. If you see a price you’re comfortable with, you may find it advantageous to go ahead and book now. I’m pretty pleased with these result.
