As the hurricane Irma approaching Florida, people are tying to fly in and out, found airlines have raised the ticket prices. The affected travellers took their frustration on social media.
Even if you are willing to pay high price, you may not find a ticket.
A desperate traveller posted “We were prepared to spend any amount to get off this island,’ ‘There were no plane tickets at all. We were prepared to fly to California to New York. We just wanted to get off the island but couldn’t find tickets.’ “Her mom found a flight that went through Puerto Rico costing aorund $5,000 but by the time she went to book, the itinerary was gone”
And a passenger Alex tweeted “Shame on you Delta for Jacking prices up from $547 to $3200+..”

Another passenger posted on Facebook “Very bad job by American Airlines. Booked a one-way ticket last night for my daughter to come home this Thursday night using this exact itinerary. Paid $160.00. Now with hurricane warnings in effect, American is gouging for the same ticket to the tune of over $1000 per person and close friends daughter who cannot afford is stranded.”
