Air India flies from Newark/new york and their price for mid May is $472 including taxes. I've never flown them but others on this board have mentioned them positively.

That seems high, but some of the fare sales were earlier, and some flights have been cancelled, enabling the airlines to get more money for the seats available. Eg, I booked in early Dec., PIT to CDG non-stop for $466, inc. taxes, etc. I got word last week that that flight has been cancelled and I now must stop and change planes in PHL. So, with fewer flights I guess they can ask the higher prices, but I still imagine you could get something for less than 950 as time draws nearer.

Try skyauction.com. I've booked several flights with them, to London, Paris, and Germany. Just be careful with the bidding. Know your limit and stick to it.

We are currently searching for fares on an open jaw trip to London and returning from Paris in mid-May. The best fare I have found is around $800. Several people have told me to wait until mid-February when the fares should start to come down. $950 is to high for a transatlantic flight.

Last Thursday I booked round trip to Paris from Cincinnati on Continental for $506. Departing last week of April returning in May. I had looked on Orbitz almost every morning since September and for some reason that morning it dropped from the 900+ range. I was curious and checked again in the afternoon and the fares were gone.

American had an ad in the paper today for sale fares from JFK to Paris and other destinations. I think latest return date was 3/22. I didn't keep the paper and sorry I don't remember exact price but it was much cheaper than $950.

I have been looking since last year for Charlotte to anywhere in Europe & have found little under $1k. Good luck. Since they recently shaved fares through March i am hoping for a price break for later in the Spring, be patient. & if you want to use miles that's probably not happening either (@ least on USAir).

I had the same experience that you did, micheri (I'm also travelling mid-May). I ended up finding a $452 fare--Philadelphia-Boston-CDG on American--through Auto Europe's consolidator arm. I've flown this route on this airline before and I'm not crazy about it, but needed to book soon or lose my window of vacation time, so we grabbed it.

I also got r/t from Memphis to Paris in mid-May on Continental for a little over $500....to go along with David's previous post. I checked expedia and airtravel.net every day for months waiting for a cheap break...The fares were only available for a limited time though

I've flown DC to Paris in late May, in the past, for under 400 bucks including taxes. I should think NYC would be much cheaper.

Hi, I just spent $975 to fly LAX to CDG on 12/21/02. There was no other choice and it was one of the busiest travel days of the year.
