oooo im so sorry! i would jump on that though – quick! the closer you get the more expensive it will get thats just the way it is with plane tickets – the chances of you finding cheaper than that is slim.

try and tell him that – we ended up paying probably a grand more than we needed to fo our honeymoon because we booked late (november for a february honeymoon), dont be us!

Another benefit to booking now is that in 4 month when you’re just a few weeks away from your wedding and looking at all the random expenses that you haven’t thought of at this point and you say crap I have to book the flight and then realize oh wait, no I don’t. Sorry I just had that moment today. It’s crazy how much of thel ittle stuff adds up right at the very end. You definitely need to book it now. We had our honeymoon booked at least 6 months before the wedding.

that is a good deal. I dont know how to convince him since you seem to have given him all the knowledge already…that is tough.  I’m like you though too and keep looking at prices…My FI kept telling me to wait longer to get some last minute deals from Travelzoo etc… but I read on Rick Steeves traveling you need to book certain things sooner! Maybe you can find some articles to show him….if he doesnt trust your decision, who will he trust though? ahhh..tough one!

This is evil June coming out but can you give him a little white lie? Tell him you spoke with the airline to ask why the price dropped so much and they told you it was an error on their part and prices would be going up again very soon? (This happened for real to me once). If you don’t feel like lying just try to keep calm and explain to him you don’t mind waitinng but you don’t want to hear him complaining when he has to pay double that price!

400 just about anywhere is a good price right now!!  I nearly had to pay that much to fly to Pensecola from the east coast last month.  (Luckily I was able to do 2 one way trips on different airlines that somehow came out less).  I’m flying to St John from east coast, and I jumped at $420 dollar tickets 2 or 3 months ago (so about 4.5 months in advance).  They’ve only gone up since then and are about 550 now.

That price is incredible and you should definitely do everything in your power to nab them at that price — including the little white lie that June42011 suggested!  As you stated, gas prices keep rising.  The airlines aren’t covering that cost out of the kindness of their big corporate hearts.  Instead, they’ll pass along those costs to the consumer.  They’re also cutting flight schedules so that they are flying fewer, but fuller planes.  The price will surely continue to rise.  Good luck!
