My family and I travel to Jamaica every summer. This year....prices are almost double. People say, "oh, check back 6-8 weeks out". UH NO....we book our flights in march, and travel in July every time. Usually go for under 400 a ticket, round trip; this year, 600-700 dollars a ticket...and....only outbound flights going out of jamaica are on saturday and sundays???????????? WHAT THE HECK, MAN?????? We have been long time, loyal, southwest customers. Their price hikes this year...are astronomical!! They aren't alone, either. Every airline is through the roof this year, and most flights we find, are day-plus layovers coming back into the country. Gas is super cheap right now too. Anyone have some insight or an answer for this crap?
