Anyone have any advise on how best to get a reasonable price for a charter. Our group has a member too young for a connecting flight and others that are too old. Thanks.

For when? Where from?

Charter schedules are not out yet for next high season.

Thanks, that is what I learned also that it is best to book a couple of months in advance. Since we are thinking of next fall we will be waiting.

Most actual charters only run in the winter from a few select Canadian cities. Don't know any that run from the US anymore. Apple and Funjuet have pretty much closed up shop.

Most airlines still offer free cancellation because of Covid. With the continuing increase in fuel prices, which does not look like it will be over anytime soon, if you find an acceptable fare I would suggest buying it now. It is unlikely that fares will go down. If they do you should be able to cancel and rebook.

My experience is that US-based airlines are no longer charging change fees for the first change and allow you to retain a "credit" for a voluntarily cancelled flight, but not a full cash refund. I have recently been able to make a flight purchase fully refundable for an additional $25.

I am only familiar with Alaska airlines.. they offer a free charge back to your credit card which takes a few days, or they deposit the funds in your “wallet” which takes seconds. We’ve done this when we have found first class seats that are close to coach prices. We found round trip first class for our winter trip that was only $150 more than coach. The increased miles we will get for flying first class (about 5000] are worth around $100 according to the points guy. So, for us it’s a good deal. The bonus miles are also “elite qualifying” miles so it helps maintain our status.

First class on Volaris entitles you to use the bathroom and not have to pay for oxygen ...

There is a 5% discount on O2 if you use a N95 mask. Makes flying coach completely dehydrated totally worth it.

Might be able to get a good deal on a Russian yacht. B-)
