    This info is not correct because I’ve been monitoring flights for New Years for over a month and waiting to find the best deal and they are MORE expensive today 10/10 then they have been in over a month!!! Please tell me your secret or the airlines have gotten word and jack the prices up for today.

    You have to come and see what’s going on in London, the price for the flights are on the roof right now. The London Heathrow airport is so crowded, it’s like every 4 minutes flight go off from this airport.
