Last week, the first official airfare price check for flights from Los Angeles to Tokyo for December, I reported that the prices for flights were at $1,186 on the low end and $1,710 on the high end, according to the Los Angeles Times Travel section. These prices are before any taxes and fees are added in.
Yesterday, they reported that L.A. to Tokyo fares have come down a bit. They are now at $934 on the low end and $1,459 on the high end. Again, these prices are before any taxes and fees are added.
So, it appears that the holiday rush for flights have tapered off a bit as we get closer to Christmas and New Year's.
We'll see how the fares are next week.
