Question for TA's About Airline Price Trends
Posted 05 January 2008 - 12:57 PM
Prices are presently about $600-$750 from the depature destinations they will be using (CLT, ATL, MCO, and NYC airports).
Currently, rates are about $300 to PUJ (Punta Cana) during Jan-Feb-Mar, but spike tremendously in April. Any idea if we can expect prices to come down in the beginning of February (once April gets to be 3-months out?).
I have a feeling we are going to have a lot of people back out at the last minute, even though their rooms are paid for, b/c of airfare prices.

That stinks, is there anyway you can contact your guests and suggest they book now?

Just before the wedding we got a few "I should have booked sooner, it's so much now". Some of them couldn't go and some had to pay more than they should have.
