A recent experience in booking our August trip from PHL-CHI-GPK has produced some interesting results. Fares from CHI-GPK held at high bucket until four months out and then dropped more than 50%. Fares from PHL to CHI on the Cardinal also just came down about 30% so we cancelled out the trip to CHI that went down the NE corridor to WAS for the CL. It looks like the system holds the price at high bucket for a time and if tickets don't sell they drop to another bucket. Then they stay at that bucket and if they don't sell after another interval of time has passed, they drop again. Anyone else seeing this phenomenon?
