Theres going to be that one old lady who thinks it's a steal!
Can anyone find a flight LGA/JFK-MIA/FLL leaving the 9th of April and returning on the 19th for under $400? (Not on frontier or Spirit)

What is a days work worth to fly a weekend earlier or a day later?

Firstly to back you up, Spirit and Frontier are both well over $400 for that itinerary. That being said, I personally would rather adjust my schedule to pay less when I can, but I'm not everyone...

Exactly. Many people don't have that luxury.

You should have them pay you extra for advertising for them on DDF too!  :D

not the point. Point is no one reading dd  is paying 400 RT to Florida hopefully
Unless they need or want those dates badly enough.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I know it's hard for many of you here to believe, but many people with real jobs don't have the luxury of just taking off extra days

Don't forget about the added cost of 2-3 extra days of accommodations and rental cars.

Just an interesting point to Dan.

I've been monitoring these deals from North America to LON on BA since the post from 11/22 and the prices always stayed around the same since then and I'm not sure why each time it got a new post.

JFK-LON for $346 is the same as $407?
The prices for various cities have changed each time.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Pretty sure people have said to order one item for pick up in store and one to ship...
If you don't pick up the item from the store, they automatically cancel the pickup and refund you the money.

Looks good. Two options in that thread. Now we have to make an acronym and delete all posts that mentioned it strait out.
