    My travel agent emailed me today with a price of $900 each round trip to Montego Bay from the west coast. This seems kind of high to me. What is everyone else paying?

        We are flying from Chicago to MBJ, and our airfare is $618 per person.  We're flying out in July.

          Are you flying first class?

              That's way too high...does it include trip cancellation insurance (usually about $75 - $100 per person)? From West Coast, including Oregon, you can find roundtrip airfares under $700 on Expedia and other travel websites.

                We havent book our flights yet. I am hoping the prices drop some.(I check everyday!) From Philly to Mexico our round-trip airfare is $620 in coach.

                I want first class but I am sure it will be way over-priced!

                  I've talked to a number of travel agents, and they all said the same thing -- that airfare prices will likely increase due to gas prices and/or due to the merger of 2 major airlines, and that this is a year that they're unable to predict when airfare will decrease. I still haven't booked our airfare because I'm hoping it'll decrease -- but feel that I may regret it if prices actually continue to increase!

                    Thanks for all the replies. I emailed a different travel agent last night to see if she can come up with anything better.

                      We just booked our flights and the resort today! The second travel agent was able to find us flights for $685!
