Crazy Fares!

Sun Oct 11, 2009 10:20 pm

Hi, I'm looking for flights to MNL from either JFK or EWR leaving on June 28 or around that day, and going back either last week of July or first/second week of August. So far the cheapest flight is KE - $1300/each. I find it very expensive, November-May flights are almost 60% cheaper.... is their any chance that the fares will go lower? or should I go to a traveling agency to get a cheaper fare? I'm interested buying on Expedia since they have no change fees (were not sure when we will going back) THANKs In advance!  Smile

As a FilipinoAmerican, my family is always looking for good fares back to MNL. They say that summer/peak fares are around $1000 max $1200. It may go a little lower, but I'm not sure. When my dad went in Nov 2008, he only paid $800.

Fares tend to be higher in the summer - more people are leisure travellers, so airlines will tend to raise fares internationally out of the USA during this time period.

During the winter, there is far less demand, so prices get cut.

Basic supply and demand theory here - more people want to travel abroad on vacation in July than January.
