FU: Airline Flight Pricing !#$@#$%^@#$^

An update to my rant last week - [forums.macresource.com]

Signed up for airfare watchdog and got a note this morning that the prices had dipped back down into a semi-reasonable range. About a hundred more than the first time we'd looked, but close enough for government work. Still a needlessly frustrating process.

Thanks to all who suggested / commiserated / berated me for being slow on the trigger.

Z, there will be fare wars between now and before the holidays in case you can hold off. Airfares are like stock prices, they can change multiple times a day.

There will be, and flights between AK and the midwest will not benefit, I can say with about 98.2% certainty.

I see in your previous thread that you're flying to OMA. Perhaps two separate legs, ANC-SEA and SEA-OMA if need be? There's been really low ANC-SEA tix in recent off-seasons but I don't know about SEA-OMA. Being Alaskans, at least if you fly Alaska Air you'll have the benefits of Club 49 and not pay bag fees. Good luck and keep us posted!

The government (military) just flew my oldest back to the DC area from northern California, then flew them back out two days later to southern California, even though they were willing to rent a vehicle at their own expense to make the trip.
