MILWAUKEE -- A local travel pro said flights to get Badgers fans to Texas in time for the Final Four are "insanely unavailable."

"If you have not secured airfare to Dallas, my best advice to you is to get in your car and start driving if you're hoping to go down there," said Rose Gray with Fox World Travel.
Gray admitted that right now it seems harder to get plane tickets than game tickets to the Final Four.
"I'm seeing airfares around $1,000 in the most expensive economy class I can find," Gray said. "I can find a couple first class tickets that are running around $1,700 a person."
Gray said there are no "deals" to be had to go to the Final Four. She said she's seen four-day packages including hotels within walking distance, game tickets and a fan experience going for about $1,900 per person, but those are close to selling out.  
Gray said once you arrive, the Dallas suburbs will have plenty of hotel rooms available.
