Skyhigh last minute Thanksgiving airfares bringing you down? That's partly because last minute airfare's always spendy, but partly because Thanksgiving week is what's called a peak air travel time and airfares do peak accordingly. If you can leave on Thanksgiving Thursday, you've an awesome option: standby -- absolutely worth a shot with Airtran U, Airtran's student-only standby airfares for flyers 18-22 years old. $60 one way tickets to or from many cities the eastern airline serves and $90-$120 to or from a handful of its "long haul" routes (like Seattle), but fares are blacked out Wednesday, Saturday and Monday (consider catching a bus or Amtrak back -- you can get student discounts).
