I just paid $400 for a flight from DC to Milwaukee (and back) in June. I could have gotten it cheaper, but not at the times I needed.

A flight from Frankfurt to DC would have been 1200

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I'm going to be using a travel agent friend to book any of my trips. But yeah, flights have started to get extra silly! Any plans I had for going overseas anytime soon are being refigured and rebudgeted. Depending on what goes on with Iran and the euro, it might end up being cheaper to go by boat. :P

It's 80 return for me to go to Ireland in April. I was actually surprised how cheap it was! I went to England in 2009 and the flights were around 200. In 2011, it was only 160 in total. I really think ours are cheaper over here.

It would have been around $500 each for us to fly to Vegas last year. About the same to fly to California last month, too. Thankfully we just used frequent flyer miles. Depending on the day and time I chose, it could be as much as $600 to fly to Georgia a few years ago!

I would LOVE to only pay 80 to get to Ireland!

I think we spent $500 a piece on roundtrip Ireland tickets 3 years ago... they're over $1000 for me now!

Last year we debated going to Arizona, and flights were in the low $200's. I checked a few days ago and they were ~$350.

I always search with flex month on Kayak, and I also check individual airline websites.
