As I was clicking through to the final confirmation page of my Orbitz plane ticket purchase today, I got that dreaded price change message. Buying plane tickets almost feels like a sport in our house as we watch fares and watch fares and play with dates and destination cities forever before purchasing. Everyone has been burned by that dreaded fare increase that bumps the price right when you finally decide to purchase. For once, the fare moved the other direction today! It felt like hitting the jackpot.
