We fly BUF-MCO on Southwest once or twice a year. Usually January and April.

Lowest we paid was $447
Highest we paid was $721
Thats for our party of 3. We only fly non-stop.
Average $79-$99 per person per way!

I stalk Southwests website every day! It seems as if we book our January flights in October each year. That when I've found the best prices. We usually go the last week of January into the 1st week of February.

We just booked for the end of September, Southwest, for $187.80 taxes in, return, direct flights. In 2010 we paid $150 return but I haven't seen it that low since. I was pretty pleased with our rate for this year!

Need a roundtrip flight for my wife in late August MCO/BUF, but there's nothing lower than $164 one way. I was hoping for $200 roundtrip max. Amd Allegiant doesn't fly between BUF/MCO during that time period, otherwise I might get something even cheaper - drat! Think there'll be any sales in the next few weeks?

I have been lucky in my flight purchases.

In 2010 we paid 245 RT pp from Pearson to MCO in Air Transat (CanJet).
In 2012 we paid 160 RT pp from Buffalo to MCO on Southwest
this year we paid 223 RT pp from buffalo to MCO on Jet Blue.

The convenience of flying from Toronto is not worth the large price. I will drive the 2+ hours to buffalo and make it an adventure.

Southwest are usually the best for us. Lowest we've paid for 4 is $800 in 2008. Highest will be our upcoming trip most likely. I found the flight going down on Southwest for $165 but return I can't get lower than $211, and that's a flight with a connection. I have to adjust my price perimeters for this one because we want to be home a few days before Christmas. As does every other traveller around that time

So it's looking like we'll be paying around $1500 return for those flights.

On average I shoot for $1200 and usually come in right around that number for non-stops.

An update to my earlier post. I decided to go ahead and book an early morning flight on Southwest with a layover since I had a Southwest credit to use and it was hundreds cheaper than anything else.

So flying non stop to MCO on Dec 13th, and flying home with one stop on December 23rd cost me a grand total of 1350 for 4 or $337 per person. Not great by any means but I can live with it for flights that have me coming home 2 days before Christmas. Hopefully some of the non-stops will drop and I can switch to one for the return.

Would you pay $300 for this route? We leave end of Feb but come back as March break starts. I'm a little nervous waiting as there's 7 of us and our dates are not flexible....

I pm'd you but just saw this. If your dates aren't flexible I would book at that price. The popular advice around here is book with what you can live with. The flight above that I mentioned was higher than we usually pay but I know there's a good chance it won't come down since it's right before Christmas and I'd kick myself if it went even higher so I decided to book.

Traveling in 3 weeks -
Paid direct southwest to get there $125, Direct Jetblue to get back $110
$235 each total

Traveling at Christmas
Paid direct southwest both flights $268.80

We were so happy with those rates - best we've seen in a long while. We've been driving for the past couple of years because the prices haven't been great.
We're watching for March break but so far not so good...

I could've got a lower rate by leaving on the evening flight. But its not worth it to me...I'd rather be in Orlando at 1030am!!

We are flying from Buffalo to Orlando on August 14. We got flights on Southwest for $250 per person (non-stop, return) Normally, we fly out of Detroit (on Delta or Spirit) because it tends to be quite a bit cheaper. Although the flights were a bit more than we normally spend (usually $200 or less per person) the fact that we don't have to drive 4+ hrs to get to Detroit as well as not having to pay for baggage made the decision to fly Southwest an easy one!
