Help With Booking MIA / FLL To SAN

Tue Jun 28, 2005 6:14 am

Hi, I would like to book a one way ticket from Miami to San Diego for December 26th. So far, the fares I have seen have been rather high. I found a cheap MIA - LAX run with AA, but would prefer to fly directly to SAN.

Also - are Frontier likely to reduce their fare? I would love to try them from FLL to SAN, but the quote is over $400 single.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There is no nonstop service between Florida and San Diego.

America West has a one-stop Fort Lauderdale to San Diego via Las Vegas (320)

Delta Air Lines has a one-stop Miami to San Diego via Atlanta (767)

Looks like lowest fare right now is just over $300.

In the late summer - the airlines start worrying about autumn / winter capacity so you may want to wait to see if there is a seat sale. However, Dec 26th may be a blackout date in any event.

Expedia shows some United flights (not direct) for around $268 / $274 one way.

December 26th is generally a high-demand travel date, lots of people and families starting their christmas/new years vacation after christmas day, especially between high-demand cities such as MIA/FLL and LAX/SAN.....I would suggest that you book sooner than opposed to later for this trip.

$300 to $350 is what it will cost for a oneway ticket....remember many low fares are blacked out during the holiday travel period (usually from about December 16 to Jan 3 or 4, depending upon which days of the week that the holidays fall upon.)

Good luck.

Southwest's highest fare on FLL-SAN will be $299 once the December flights become available for booking -- probably in the next month or two. The lowest published one-way fare they offer right now towards the end of the schedule is $191 plus taxes or fees which bring the price up to $206-213.

If you want to lock in your price now, the jetBlue flight via IAD might be a good option, though you'll spend nearly ten hours traveling.
