I'm looking for flights from Phoenix for our 3rd trip to Couples. In the past we've flown to Ft.Lauderdale using Southwest points, stayed the night and flew out the next morning. I've always found great airfare (AirJamaica and Jet Blue) from Ft.Lauderdale and our total cost was never over $500 total. I feel like I'm not finding any great deals right now.

This trip we are looking at flying a red eye out and American Airlines looks like it has the best options for $1,300 total right now. I'm not used to this high of airfare. Anyone from Phoenix know if this is normal fare pricing? Should I book now for our April 2014 trip or wait it out? I feel like there are not many options from Phoenix and hoping for some advice!!! (Want to avoid Spirit Airlines as well).
