    As long as it was not an international flight, I might consider it…

    @oracle:  I would do it, but my FI would be really upset about it because he hates flying, and thinks its way worse to do it solo.

    not to save 150, I wouldn’t.  Maybe if it was more of a difference I’d do it, or just save the miles for another day.

    I fly by myself all the time, but that’s on different days. My work schedule is more flexible than his, so when we go home for holidays I would leave a few days earlier than him and then he would go back home a few days earlier than me. The closer you get to the holiday date, the higher the ticket price is. I would probably do something like what you are saying if it saves $150 though!

    Yes. We do it regularly, actually. I’ve been on 38 flights in the last 8 months, sooooooo flying isn’t romantic or even a very fun part of the process anymore. We’re doing a lot of free airline miles flying at the moment, so that means we have done separate airlines and separate flight times going to the same place. On a trip to China, we were seated in different classes because there was only one free ticket per class. I like to be left alone while flying, so it all works for me!

    Depends on what the flight is for.

    Going on your honeymoon–no way.

    Just visiting family–totally.

    Not for $150. Unless we were talking about a much higher savings, I wouldn’t consider taking seperate fights.

    I wouldn’t do it to save $150. I get airsick and I would be much happier with my FI with me. It would have to be a lot more $ saved to separate us. If I didn’t get airsick, and it wasn’t an international flight, then I would definitely consider it.

    Nope wouldn’t do it, I am not a good flyer and have flown by myself before. I rather be able to talk to someone to help ease my uneasiness of flying.

    I am a horrible flyer, get nausea, really anxious, practically hyperventaliate, the whole deal. So there is no way I would even get in an airport without DH with me. That being said I think if you are fine with flying alone then go for it! The money saved can be used for a nice night out with the two of you.

    Probably not for $150, but to save a little more…probably.

    FI and I are going to Thailand in December. I’m pretty sure he’d rather gouge his eyes out with a spoon than sit in very, very close quarters with me for the 41 hour flight (He’s uber quiet, I’m uber chatty). Although we are flying together.

    Not for $150. Not that I couldn’t fly by myself, but if I am going somewhere with DH, then I want to GO with DH.
