Planning a trip in a few months from TX to NC. Seemed like every flight leaves at 5:30am, meaning I’d have to get there at 3:30am, wake even earlier, etc. Every flight not at 5:30am jumps up hundreds of dollars. Average cost round trip is $500-700. Any tips I’m somehow missing? I’ve been monitoring for weeks now.

Airlines use dynamic pricing that considers demand, competition, etc. Of course there’s going to be less demand for flights leaving at the crack of dawn, so those tickets are cheaper.

I live in clt, I have noticed it tends to be more expensive than flying into raleigh (used to live there) bc it’s a huge hub for American. But google flights like someone else mentioned is a good site to track flight options

Did you try Google Flights? Also, Southwest and some of the more economically friendly carriers won’t show up on those type of websites. You have to go to their website directly. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best days to book.

I should add I’ve been following it on the Hopper app, and it doesn’t even need to be nonstop. These are all flights that have 1 stop with a layover of up to 4 hours. Cant figure out why they are so much.

Also, use a VPN and a private browser. I’ve gotten different prices when I use this method
