I was checking air faire and on July 7 southwest is open up for feb march if they stay the same as they are I am going to book as soon as I get home under $400 each the best I HAVE seen was over $900 round trip.
I don't know where you have been looking, but I have been tracking prices and for an economy seat from LA to New Orleans the cost has been in the $450 area per person. Also, Southwest is not listing anything past January on their website right now.
GGGGerrrrrrrr!!! I get so irritated some times!!! Oscar requires a room with an open frame bed ( uses hoyer lift to get into and out of bed, thusly needs the bed to be open underneath!!) Now the hotels are not guaranteeing we will have a room with the correct bed!!!!! With everything booking up, they can call the shots I guess.
So, anyway, It looks like Oscar and I will stay somewhere on the outskirts of town where the rush crowd will be minimal!!! We'll still try for any get together, but it will all just depend . I'm going to hush now, and head for bed.
Keep an eye open Ann and as something may open up in the next 33 weeks that fits your needs. If NOT then I am sure there will be time for a get together somewhere during the Pre Cruise.
