Flight question - U.S. To London, then to Madrid, then back to U.S.

Jump to last reply

I've booked the hotels, but I ran into an obstacle when booking my flights. I have always done straight round-trip flights, and I hope someone can help with this slightly more complicated itinerary.

When we first looked into this, I quickly checked flights, and it seemed easy and not much more expensive to fly from Louisville to London, then to Madrid a few days later, then back to Louisville.

But now that I'm looking ready too book the flights, I'm having a problem with the flight times. The biggest problem is the flight from London to Madrid. I thought there would be plenty of nonstop, midday flights. But when I enter my information, that flight either leaves at 6 a.m. (not a good option), or it involves another stop and takes 10 or 12 hours.

And on some of the sites, I might get a good London-Madrid flight, but the other legs take 22 hours.

I've tried Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Kayak, AAA and American Airlines. I've tried breaking out the London-Madrid leg and doing that separately. But I just can't get a good combination.

If anyone has a suggestion about options I'm not considering, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!
