    Hi. I'm trying to book a flight leaving 8/7 from Newark,NJ to Fort Myers, FL...and just a few days ago I seemed to be able to get a decent price ($250 round-trip) but I had to wait around for my mom to decide...I checked today and the prices went up ($333). I know its less than 14 days out but any chance that airfare may drop again or is it more likely to go up even more?? TIA

      My FI and I are long distance, and we see each other every weekend which means A LOT of flights. One of my favorite sites is Farecast. It tracks and trends airfare and will tell you if you should buy now or wait.

          I use Farecast also, they give you tips on when to buy the tickets for the lowest price.

              Generally speaking - the closer you are to your departure date, the higher the airfares will get, because as the lower classes of service (the "cheaper" seats) get sold out, the fares increase...it's not always the case, but I find that is usually what happens...up here at least!
