Airfare

Most major airlines have added extra flights to Phoenix from both the Boston area and Seattle, with United Airlines alone adding 55 extra flights to Phoenix for the Super Bowl, according to USA Today. But they don't come cheap. ABC News reports that the price of an airline ticket from the Seattle Airport to Phoenix is up 24 percent from normal, with flights begining at $682. 

But lucky for us Portlanders and Seahawks fans, Patriots fans have it worse, with flights from Boston to Phoenix up 80 percent from normal, and the cheapest flights costing around $850.
