Clear your cookies honey. Delete Internet History. They track you, even when you're not on their sites. Probably.

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

Thanks, I just tried again for Economy and it is not listing Economy saver on my PC. And again its coming up with a ridiculous price.
Defo need to clean my history up... The gremlins have got hold of it.
Have booked this route regularly over the last 4 years...

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

It also depends when you are flying, if you want to fly this week, the Economy Savers have all gone.
Best of luck!

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

I'm waiting for someone to post the usual EF gem and ask why you won't consider flying to New York instead as a return to JFK is cheaper .....?

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

If you book regularly then why not book back to back flights ?? I do this all the time. I had a flight out in Nov - return in January.My return in Nov was the second part of a flight from Sept... I nearly always know in advance when I am going and this saves me quite a lot (esp if you can be flexible) and I mix and match with Manch / London if I want a few days in London I get a cheap advance train ticket and fly home from City airport. I have a LDN - Zurich in April I am just looking for the other bit to now.....

Tell us what browser you are using and we'll tell you how to clear cookies. And yes, most of the sites do keep track. Not just to "enhance your experience" but also to track trends. If the computer notices an unusual spike in searches for a particular destination, the software can bump prices to "match demand."

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

Could it be related to half-term and the middle of the skiing season?

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

You must be one of Swiss' most loyal customers.

When I don't get a price I like, I don't fiddle with cookies, I just buy from an airline that's cheaper.

Re: Swiss Air to Manchester

I am not aware of any other airlines flying directly from Zurich to Manchester.
We used to use Easyjet, but sadly that stopped last year......
