Kyliebaby, I did not do so well as you, but I did get a $100 voucher for the entertainment system not working quite right. (No, I didn't request it.) I am just a bit envious of your deal.

Nancicita, I connected in ATL. Other than the fact it was a long layover (I think something like 4 hours), it was no different than any generic connection I can think of.

Thanks for the follow-up. I wish I could stumble up on a 'test fare' to Europe.

Kylie, you win. Congrats! Where will you go with the voucher?

I just got back last week from my Delta trip to Rome ($435 R/T from LAX!). While Rome was amazing, Delta seats are not. Besides the entertainment system (movies on demand), I found little to recommend about flying delta. I swear, those were some of the most uncomfortable seats ever. And for those of you yet to go, bring snacks.

My trip report has been started here on Fodor's too.

Thanks everyone! My friend and I just kept asking each other, "Is this really happening?" Madrid was amazing too, even if it was only for four days

As for the Atlanta airport, it is actually really nice in terms of shops and restaurants (check out One Flew South in Terminal E http://www.oneflewsouthatl.com/). They are notorious for changing the gates though, and it happened to us on both outward journeys. It's a huge airport too, so not for the faint of walking. We almost missed our flight to Spain, but made it just in the nick of time!

Kristina: I'm still not sure where I'm going to go with the voucher, although I may use it for my return flight next year from the following project: www.culinaryhopscotch.blogspot.com. I'm taking off for three months to take cooking classes around Europe, and as of right now, I am booked there, but not back! I'm thinking about flying back from Istanbul to NYC and then onto California. Delta has a direct flight from IST to NYC, so it would work out perfectly. We'll see though!

Nancicita,

I've just started researching them in different places, and have quite a few that I need to investigate further. Let me know where you're interested in taking them, and if I have information on classes there, I will gladly pass it along. I can't wait-- hurry up January!

Here you go! These are scattered about France and Italy. Some are pretty pricey, but not entirely cost-prohibitive. I'll just have to pick and choose wisely as I travel around!
