    Trying to book now and flighthub keeps popping up with a higher price at the last step, any advice? Using the exact flights listed on google.

    "Unfortunately, your flight is no longer available at the current price.
    The price has increased by $484.00 per passenger.
    New Total: $5,886.04
    Includes taxes and fees. Prices quoted in CAD.
    Airline baggage fees may apply."

    Hi Dallas,

    On Flighthub, I'm seeing them come up as 'Phone Only' fares now, for $987.
    You may want to try calling and see if your dates are still available for $987.

    1-800-755-4580.

    If you try searching on Momondo, you may see Flighthub come up as a search partner, and can click through right to the booking page, without getting the 'Phone only' message. Doing that, I've seen them for $991.

    It can also just be that Google Flights is showing a price that has recently sold out for those particular dates, or there are not enough tickets left for those dates.

    It looks to me like you're trying for 4 tickets, and it can sometimes be tough to get all 4 tickets at the cheapest price.

    You can try setting the number of passengers on Google Flights to 4 and see if any dates still come up with cheap prices. It can be worth trying slightly different dates to see if it makes a difference.

    Just wondering what transit time everyone else found for this flight? The only ones that were a good price had a 12-13hr wait at LA.

    When this was posted about a week ago, most of the ones I saw for $985 were the perfect 2 hour connections in Vancouver each way (as shown in the screenshot in the blog post).

    But unfortunately I think these are all gone now.
