    Find me a flight please. Are you up to the challenge?

    We are looking to go to Orlando at the end of August or beginning of September next year. Schedule flights aren't out yet so we're limited to what's available. Ideally we'd like to book soon so any help would be appreciated.
    Details are:
    14 nights from Scotland (Glasgow or Edinbugh) for party of 10 flying into Sanford or Orlando International.
    6 adults
    3 children - 14, 12 and 10 years old
    1 infant
    Leaving any day between Aug 27th 2010 and Sep 5th 2010

    Rep given fo best price. Thanks to all.

    I didn't ask you specifically did I? So butt out.
    I have looked endlessly and i am asking for help in finding some good deals. Isn't that what this site is for? Maybe i'm mistaken :whistling:

    I've had a look on there and they are still expensive or sold out. We're worried about waiting until nearer the time with there being 10 of us. Thomas Cook don't have availaibilty for all of us on their flights already. :?

    I would definately wait at least another 2 weeks

    I'm checking them every day. We have a villa booked and it is held for us over a period of 3 weeks. It would be nice to know that we had flights booked and when exactly we were going
    Are there any flights you'd recommend, remembering that Scottish flights are a nightmare at times?

    Have you thought about going from Manchester with Virgin?

    my girlfriend is a travel agent, would you like her to look in the morning, her company is really cheap, she works in the Florida department so is a Florida Specialist?????

    How much were you looking to spend??

    most companies seem to only be showing July / aug 2010 - you might need to wait a little a while before they show Sep 2010

    Manchester was ok last twice we've been but the travel back is a nightmare. Especially as there are 10 of us and our wee boy will only be 22 months.

    That would be perfect thanks. We have never paid more than £350 for flights before from Manchester but we understand from Scotland will be dearer and that prices have gone up. We are looking to get as near as we can to £400 but know that might be stretching it. We are willing to go indirect as well as long as the changeover is relatively straightforward.

    I was hoping that some of the charter prices might have started dropping but it doesn't look like it.

    Hi,

    This is what has come back

    Cheapest Indirect from Edinburgh – Amsterdam - Detroit – Orlando and same on the way back = £459 per person



    Cheapest charter direct from Glasgow to Sanford is £549 per person.

    Not as cheap as you would have hoped i dont think

    Still expensive. We did get an offer of indirect via Philadelphia for the same price of £459 but i think 2 stops is out of the question. Thanks for trying though but if you get any more prices, please let me know.

    You really need to wait. It's way too early to be looking for next September. The very earliest I would even start looking would be December time.
