Summer Airfare - Honest Opinions?

Jump to last reply

Ok, I have been calling airlines and searching the internet since October looking for what I consider cheap airfare ($800 or less) from Dulles to Frankfurt. My ticket would be open jaw Dulles to Frankfurt and Paris to Dulles. My husband's ticket would be R/T from Dulles to Frankfurt. Travel time is end of July and returning in August.

Air Canada, British Airways, Iceland Air offer cheaper fare (cheaper being defined as around $1080) but the flight time is 14 hours and longer.

I"ve been asking the agents at the airlines whether or not they think the airfare will get any cheaper for summer and their answer: No. It will only increase.

I know some of you keep track of the trends from year to year ... so considering fuel and everything else ... does anyone think airfare will be any cheaper than it is now? Airfare on Continental, Delta, American, Air France, Lufthansa, United, and USAIR is around $1200 and higher.

I really hate the thought of spending around $2500 on two tickets to Europe ... but I also hate to wait any longer in case the flights go up instead of down. I'm thinking of waiting until March 1 and deciding then but thought I would check and see what you all had to say on here.
