It’s amazing what a difference a day makes when it comes to buying plane tickets. I’ve been scoping out tickets going to Los Angeles in a few weeks, and yesterday, when I checked (on Southwest), the ticket was $69 one way. Today, when I checked, it was up to $96! I know usually ticket prices do fluctuate depending on the day of the week, but they also fluctuate depending on how soon the flight is.
Since the two week mark has passed for the originally scheduled start of the trip, I guess the tickets are going for a higher price due to the fact that the date is just around the corner. How crazy; this little change has made me have to modify my reservations for the next day instead of the original day intended. Sigh. Well, next time I hope to remember to make reservations well in advance.
