Question Flight prices

Hi, not even coming back to PP until next August, fly out of local airport, Bounemouth, so normally fly Thomsonfly, was going to book flights this Saturday at approx 250 plus 44 for bag each. Have just been on TFs website and prices have gone up another 50 each in the last few hours!!! What to do? hang on in there and see if they go back down or go ahead and book them? Husband wants to wait! Has anyone else had this problem? would love to hear what you think, thanks.

I would definitely wait to book as I have experienced this year our flights going down in the region of 75+ each. That was with Jet2 though. I don't know how Thomson flights will go, they may not fluctuate as much so if you really want to fly with them it might be better to take your chance and book now

We use Thomsonfly from Bournemouth and have booked for June purely because we want a few extra days have booked the apartment and so therefore want to be certain of getting there without having to trudge to Gatwick Have you checked Southampton ? Flybe dont seem as expensive as they were previously

I watch their Lanzarote flights sometimes and they change very frequently Thomsonfly have gone up a lot over the last few years but because Ryanair dont put out their flights till late I dont use them

Your flights sound cheaper than ours for June so I wont look again !!

I do think the answer is how long is a piece of string ! It just varies with booking levels and our weather has a lot of influence on that !

My advice would be to wait as long as you can.Nearly all of the airlines have special offers or sales over the winter.Anyway 300 is not cheap now and if the worst came to the worst you could fly with Ryanair (a last resort but it would be cheaper)

Was the 300+44 for bag.....per person? If that is the case I just wouldn't book with them. I thought the flights were 300 for 2 people

Thankyou so much for your replies, Yep, unfortunatly 304 plus 44 (per bag) each - does seem a lot of money the more i think about it. I shall look at Flybes prices out of Southampton, not out yet, as a last resort will have to fly Ryan air.

Oh my goodness!!! Can't actually believe this but flights on TF website have now gone up another 40 each so an increase of 90 each in two days!!!! Might even have to make that dreaded Gatwick trip!

Flights are becoming a joke now....so expensive. Personally I would make the journey to Gatwick to get cheaper flight. We usually travel to Newcastle (about 2.5 hours) have an overnight and look on that as winding down for your holiday

It would be cheaper to book a package and just use the flight.

Gers, we have already booked easyjet from GLA for 3 days in February. Only problem is we leave on the Saturday afternoon and the flight does not arrive in Palma until almost 7pm so it is a kind of wasted day. Would be better if flight was in morning

Gers, yes they are indeed BA scheduled BA flights from Glasgow only run on summer at the moment. I know people who have used and are a great service. I phoned Barrhead Travel as their website does not let you choose their flight far enough ahead for us. They also try to sell you their afternoon service before their morning flight at 07.30. They seem to hold seats for their packages to a certain time.

However, will try again for next summer. Rows are for 2 only each side of the aisle, includes baggage in price and allocates seats at check in and I think food is included.

PS if booking on line watch that you choose their BA flights as they also offer Jet2.
