[QUOTE=papa bear;994419]Just for future reference, you should check out Yapta: Track Prices - Cheap Flights, Discount Hotels, Cheap Airline Tickets, Travel Deals
Their website indicates that “If the price of your airline ticket drops below what you paid, Yapta will alert you when you’re eligible for a refund from the airline.” They also track hotel rates & availability as well as airfare drops…[/QUOTE]
That’s what I’d like explained- several times over the past two years I have purchased tickets on several carriers (Airtran and UsAir) where the price went down after I purchased. In order to give you a refund (Airtran and UsAir), you must pay a change of ticket fee which is $150 each ticket. So, obviously, these are airline rules. It seems that on these carriers if you purchase an economy class ticket, you will not see any refund unless your ticket price is reduced by at least $150…
By the way- I think $1244 is a good price Franco- we always travel Christmas week and it’s been hard to predict what the prices are going to do.
