    I'm escorting my mother and brother to New Orleans the first week of April for one-way cruise. They're cruising, I'm not. I got a ticket on their one-way flight out, and am now looking for a one-way fare back to Seattle. I can't believe how expensive airfares are that first April week. I could fly to Hawaii for the same total cost flying to/from New Orleans, $750! Mardi Gras week is not even that much! But it is after Easter, and spring break for many schools, I guess...

    For those who go to New Orleans somewhat regularly, have you seen a sweet spot time for airfare? Maybe within 60 days or so out? I've been watching for over a month, and fares are very steady. I might as well keep watching and hope they go down....:ponder:

    The first week of April is spring break here on Long Island. Our break runs from Good Friday through April 7th. We are going to New Orleans that week, and the airfares were much higher than for the surrounding weeks.

    I believe French Quarter Festival is going on that weekend and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Check it out online and perhaps they may want to stay a few days for it. There are 21 bandstands all around the Quarter with every kind of music and it's all free. People come from all over the world for it. Amtrak has a train going to Jackson, Ms at 1:30 everyday (2.5 hr)so check airfare from there.

    Thanks, I looked at Jackson MS, but airfare was no better from there than New Orleans.
    However a low fare started showing on discount Spirit airlines. It has a long layover, but it's in Las Vegas, so I'll go to a spa, maybe gamble a little etc.
    Not too bad...:)
