I’ve been looking to buy a plane ticket to my mom’s house (Cleveland) this March, and the price is coming up as $600 round-trip. Now, last year, that same flight was in the $300 range, and even over Christmas time, it was less than $550. I don’t see any reason why the week before St. Patrick’s day would be a busy travel time, so I’m wondering if there’s some reason that airfares would be unusually high right now, and more importantly, if I can expect them to go down any time in the next month. If it matters, the airline in question is Northwest, and no, there aren’t any other choices of airline available.
Does anyone have a clue?
