Last year we heard alot of complaints how Worcester was not competitive when people tried to book tickets for February vacation at the last second.  If you go to the JetBlueBestFareFinder , you will see that the prices are high for the week-end of February 14th.

They are high because people have already booked their trips well in advance and there are few seats left on these flights.   It is not a question of Worcester being competitive in this case, but more a question of supply.   We only have 100 seats available per day to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.   If you want till there are only a limited amount of seats available, the prices are high.      At the same time even Boston, Providence, Harford and Manchester will be high that week-end if you are trying to book this late.
