So, I’m currently looking at flights to go home to Miami, FL from Washington, D.C. for the Thanksgiving holiday. Flights, like every holiday, are expensive.
I’m a bit restricted on the day and time that I could leave and return due to my school schedule, so that doesn’t help either.
Price in miles: (round trip)
- Economy: 62,500 (YIKES)
- First: 75,000 (YIKES)
Price in cash: (round trip)
WAS to MIA is only about 920-946 miles one-way. And, American no longer offers first class meals on this route…though as an AA EXP I would be okay with a snack and free rum and coke.
The most I am willing to pay in miles is about 35,000 for an economy/first class ticket mix…and that’s simply because I love my family and want to be there this thanksgiving. I haven’t been home for thanksgiving in three years! Cash wise, under $350 would be nice, but probably unlikely.
I haven’t decided what I will be doing yet. I still have two months so it’s not a big deal. How much have you paid in the past for thanksgiving or holiday travel in general?
