As for commercial airlines, ticket prices are through the roof for some of the major cities in the line of totality. While a ticket to Columbia, South Carolina, costs approximately $395 (an increase of nine percent, according to Hipmunk), airfare to Nashville might set you back $708 (an increase of 75 percent). That price obviously depends on where you're flying from. For example, the ticket price of a flight from L.A. to Portland has increased 100 percent from last year. The cheapest seat on a Frontier flight from Orlando to Nashville still runs about $400. However, if you're in Chicago and looking for a quick trip to see the full eclipse, a ticket to St. Louis is somehow cheaper than it was a year ago.
