Interestingly enough, that fare was supposedly only available on airfare.com....$300 below the next advertised route. However, when you try to access it now, you get the message, "Sorry we couldn't get the same price for the trip you selected." Then they offer you the $923 flight. At best, there were only a handful of tickets at these prices. At worst......

Your right ...that 653 is not available ...why would they put it up ? I wouldn't travel on Iberia anyway.I'm hoping the ticket on Delta goes down to 800-830 and i'll just buy it

I've even gone as early as April 2 thru 11 and the price is as of today 923 RT ....On those dates there are ton's of seats available ......something has to give somewhere.

Check out Northwest. They have a new thing called perkchoice where you pay for part of the ticket with cash and part of the ticket with frequent flyer miles. The prices look pretty good if you don't mind using frequent flyer miles this way.

This week they now have 84 seats left for Venice and 117 from Rome ---so alittle selling is starting. There are still alot of seats ...I believe the fare will go alittle lower.

How do you know how many seats are available? Are you using the seat selector to count the empty seats? If so this is not a good gage of how full or empty a flight is. Not every passenger that has a ticket has been assigned a seat yet; especially large tour groups. Also consolidators and sites like Expedia.com buy entire blocks of seats which may not be assigned as well.

Yes I am using the seat selector. I am really researching the pricing ...... Right now is 860.

I have done a comparison of other times for a 9 day trip and have gotten prices all over the board.

3/5 thru 3/14 -- 664
3/12 thru 3/31 --- 916
3/19 thru 3/28 -- 1048
4/2 thru 4/11 = 860
4/16 thru 4/25 = 1066
4/23 thru 5/2 = 940
4/30 thru 5/9 = 990
5/7 thru 5/16 = 1050

The 84 seats from JFK to Venice is very accurate. I went as far as to put my credit card information in and I was able to view all seats that were available. This was done on Delta.com.

Patrick...you missed the point of Michael's post. Just because there are seats that haven't been chosen doesn't mean the tickets haven't been sold. You may check tomorrow and find only 10 seats left, if a big block (such as a tour) has been assigned in the meantime. The guide to seat selection is not a good indication as to tickets not sold, nor is it a good guide to whether prices might go up or down.

I could have bought any of the 84 seats ..credit card was locked and loaded they said pick any of these seats ....what was misunderstood ? Why would Delta say I could have any of those 84 seats then ?

Yes, but you probably could not have PURCHASED all 84 seats

I'm just buying it in the morning and i'll be done with it. Hopefully the price stays 860

I finally bought the ticket for 859.40 each ...except I took a later flight back home out of Rome which leaves at 1pm or so. I'm done with tracking the prices and now I can concentrate on what i'm going to do.
