I have a round trip, premium economy flight from Denver to Istanbul that I have been monitoring on Google flights for dates in September 2020. I get email updates when there is a price change. Before the pandemic, I was monitoring the price and had anticipated buying a ticket about now, or in April.
A month ago, and for several months prior, the price for the flight was stable, in the narrow range of $1100 to $1400 or so.
A week ago, it jumped to $1900.
And today, it jumped to $3100.
Just curious if anyone else is monitoring a flight, some 5 or 6 months out, and seeing anything similar? I am no longer planning on taking this trip, but I will continue to monitor the price out of curiosity.
Edit 3/20: price just dropped to $2500. Wild gyrations, no real sense to any of it. Fun to watch...
