I needed to be in BOS on personal business April 16. I live in RIC.

There are plenty of flights going into BOS April 15 but on April 16, ALL flights on ALL airlines to ALL cities are booked solid. Even DH is booked solid to IAD, and they are flying the A319 on the route!

The excepion I found was FL BOS-PHF Coach was booked solid but I got a business class seat at full fare.

Whats going on?

I know about the marathon, but all flights LEAVING Boston are full up saturday.

Getting into Boston is fine: plenty of unfilled flights Friday.

Why the mass exodus before the marathon?

Ive booked already PHF-BOS Apr 15 and BOS-PHF Apr 16. Coach northbound and Business southbound, because there are no seats BOS to RIC

I think it must be spring break. thanks.

Dooh,

It's been so long since I've had one that I totally forgot about Spring Break. We might have one or two college students heading someplace warm...... Smile

ACAfan,
Local schools (not colleges) have a vacation starting that weekend, so everybody gets out of town on Saturday. Combine that with people coming in for the marathon (and Monday 4/18 is a state holiday here in Mass.), and you get lots of full flights. Did you or could you look at flights to pvd or mht?
