Demand From NYC In The Winter

Sat Mar 26, 2005 2:43 am

Are there any places - excluding Europe, Asia and Australiasia - where the demand during the WINTER from NYC is high but the prices are also high/very high? For instance, places in the Caribbean or in Mexico where New Yorkers might go to 'get the sun,' but where the fares are high/very high?

Sure. Any of the more exotic Caribbean destinations command very high fares - basically, anywhere that isn't SJU.

We're flying EWR-STT tomorrow on CO - the fare was $750 roundtrip. Most of the Caribbean destinations routinely go for ~$800.

Bloody hell! Do the prices reduce in summer, when the demand is presumably less, or is there high demand pretty much year-round demand? I don't know this answer re. the USA, so be gentle.  Wink

Could you please give me a list of places you're referring to?

Cheers.

Well I guess places in Mexico and the Caribbean would be it. Most NYers go to Florida but that is cheaper so that doesn't count.
Some places in Mexico are very expensive so that would be you answer.

In the Winter people in the Northeast (NYC, Boston etc..) want to go someplace Warm (makes sense), Florida, Mexico, Carribean etc.. The exception is the ski and snowboarders who want to go to Colorado etc.. Hence all the Seasonal nonstops from EWR to Montrose, Vail, Steamboat Springs on CO and daily nonstop service from EWR to Vail on AA. With high demad comes higher prices, in the Summer these destinations are cheaper.

In the Summer people want to go to California, Bermuda, Alaska, Canada, Europe etc.. So during the Summer fares on these routes are higher.
