    I'm considering a short trip in April and the flights are coming in at 550ish. which isn't bad for that time of year.

    I got a great flight with BA. It's a connecting flight. BA and AA are doing a lot of 'code-sharing' now, which means that you pay for the flight with AA and they organise everything but you're actually flying on a BA flight with BA Planes and cabin crew.

    BA mailed me about a sale they're having but the prices remained the same for the April trip I'm considering.

    I'm not sure how much flights are expected to fall in price, as I notice BA are now quoting non-direct flights and flights with their codeshare partners alongside their usual LGW-MCO route. I wonder if it's a sign that prices are to remain comparatively high. It's nasty when you're entering your flight dates and the price appears low, only to realise it's a connecting flight.

    ...Man, I hope the prices drop soon!
