I have found a ticket on priceline.com for $557 from orlando to London Gatwick, 05/04/05-06/09/05, is this a good price? should i buy it now? should i wait?? is priceline trustworthy, it is on virgin airways they say.
I have checked british airways and the cheapest is $601, but I know them .

Should I buy either of these tickets or should I wait? do you think I will get it cheaper?

PLEASE REPLY ASAP. THANKS

sounds like an ok price to me... wait did you say orlando?


No i think (am not positive since I havent hit europe yet) that you can get flights over there MUCH cheaper than that.

That price sounds more like west coast prices if i remember.

Someone else back me up?

No, that looks pretty good for that time of year. You have to remember that the "peak" travel season is pretty much late spring through early fall, so you're going to pay more premium rates.

I would say go with either ticket-- Virgin is a good airline and British Air is as well. Have a great time!!

I second what SV says. That's a decent price for late spring and Virgin is pretty good. You might as well give Richard Branson some more cash so he can fund more reality shows. Is that a direct flight or do you connect somewhere?

I love Virgin.. make sure you sign up for the Flying Club , as they have one of the best frequent flyer programs out there - 40,000 for a free flight to London, 20,000 for a free companion flight. Pretty good stuff!
