Should I purchase now?

Jump to last reply

I need advice, please...flying SFO-CDG May 11 this year. Returning May 30. Two adults.

I originally wanted to get Prem Econ on AF non-stop both ways but right now they are over 5k for 2 RT tickets! However I just found flights from SFO to SLC then to CDG on same dates.
I can get economy going and get Prem Econ on way home CDG to SFO nonstop for $3148 for two RT tickets.

The plane is an Airbus 330-200 out of SLC.
Is there something I am missing here? It seems like a good price. We are going to do carry-on only and there is less than 1 hour in SLC to get the next flight.
Should I go for it or wait for the fares on the non-stop both ways to come down?

I know that I should buy when the price is within my budget and not look back but I'm concerned about the SLC-CDG leg. Otherwise I wouldn't hesitate.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
