Need help booking open-jaw Sicily flights

Jump to last reply

You've been a great help in working out when to go and a general itinerary. Now I'm ready to book airfare and am having a terrible time. We want to fly TO Catania and home FROM Palermo.

Originally, I saw the best flights on Vayama, which I haven't used for awhile, but I'm seeing bad reviews for the site now. I had no trouble when I used them before. On other sites, including Hipmunk, Kayak, Google Travelocity etc. I'm having trouble finding flights with the right amount of time for layovers - I get a choice of an hour (too short for my taste on an international flight) or EIGHTEEN hours, a tad long for me.

I started playing around with the date and there's tremendous variance based on which day I leave/return. I found something on Expedia but the layover is in Munich going over for 1 hour and 20 minutes and coming back, Munich again, for 1 hour 55 minutes. I'm less worried about my baggage getting lost going home.

Lufthansa seems to have the most flights but when I try to book directly at the Lufthansa site, the fares are much higher. United looked to maybe have decent fares (from Vayama and Expedia) but again, on the United site, nothing good.

Any suggestions? We want to travel the latter half of May, this can't be too early, can it?

Thanks as always,
Alice
