well, the british consulate took forever to grant my visa and we are now just over four weeks out to our trip to scotland and london. we'd be leaving on june 3. prices for our preferred itinerary (msp-somewhere-edi/lhr-msp*) are now much higher than a few weeks ago. it would cost over $2000 more for the entire family than going one stop in both directions. however, kayak is posting these fares with a "watch" rather than "buy now" notice. is this a chance worth taking? i.e when do prices for these routes stop fluctuating and begin to rise even more sharply?
*the lhr-msp roundtrip is also now very expensive going nonstop. otherwise, i'd do that and do easy jet or whatever from lhr-edi and back.
