May/shoulder season airfare to Europe from midwest US--what are you paying?

Jump to last reply

We haven't traveled to Europe in about 3 years because we've been visiting other parts of the world recently, but we used to be quite frequent European travelers prior to these past couple years. I'm just starting to look for tickets (very flexible as to airport in Europe and with fairly flexible dates) for mid-May. Sticker shock! I've always been the queen of finding good airfares, but none of my normal tricks are working. Everything is a lot more than I have ever, ever paid in the past to Europe. I'm finding ticket prices to Europe are nearly the same price as I paid to India a year ago, and India is twice as far.

I'm just curious as to what is considered a good fare this year in shoulder season. We're flying from MSP which is always a rip-off because it is a Delta hub with no real competition. But, I am curious as to what fares really are like this year US to Europe and what I should consider a reasonable price. Thanks.
