Summer airfares to Europe

Just curious if anyone has information as to when prices for summer travel to europe may fall a bit? They seem to be running quite a bit higher at this point compared to last year.

Thanks

Just heard on the local news the "fuel surcharge" is up around $20 bucks this year. The airlines are trying to raise fares not lower them. I expect there will be some sales, but you may be paying more in 2011 (aren't you for everything else?)

Right now the airlines are running winter specials usually through March. I would consider booking in mid March. Look for new flights--flights that have been added recently by the airlines. Sometimes they will offer a special.

Picking up on wally's post--American has some new flights: JFK to BUD and ORD to HEL. If neither of those are your final destination you can connect thru those cities. I have also discovered award availability is good using those flights.

I just received an E-mail from American this morning about a winter/spring sale to Europe rather than a summer one. Begin travel by April 3 and complete travel by June 3. Travel Monday through Thursday. Purchase tickets by January 11. Book at aa.com.
