Just wanted to lament to everyone here. I called a STA travel on Saturday to check prices on flights from Houston to London for this summer. They quoted me the amazing fare of 298 including taxes!!! Needless to say I did not get paid until this afternoon, so I could not reserve the ticket until Sunday. I called on Sunday to reserve the ticket, only to find out that it was LONG GONE!!! The price had jumped up to 699!!! Needless to say, I did not buy the ticket....I am waiting for a sale now! This ever happened to anyone else???

Yup! I waited 1 day (1 day!!!) to book a flight to New Orleans last January. In that very, very short time, the price had jumped by $100 for each of us. Sheesh!

i was once in process of booking with (not so easy) easyJet and my payment wouldnt go thru as the price went up while i was booking.

A plane carries a few hundred people. Last year flying from Amsterdam (NL) to Helsinki (FI) there was a student asking everybody the prices the've payd for the flight. From the 97 people almost everybody paid a different prices various from 45 euro to 645 euro !!

Oh how annoying

I ordered accomodation the other day and my sister and I had finally made up our minds about where we were staying but there were two places in Dublin that we really liked so we decided to stay both places, the first two days at one place and the last three days at the other place... And then when I wanted to reserve the one for the last days there was no room for us!
