Airfare Sale to Amsterdam from West Coast

I received an alert today for airfares to Amsterdam for $655 on US Airways/American. I did a search and found fares for $705 from PDX to AMS, which is still bargain for the west coast; LAX may be even less. Travel has to be completed by October 14. I wish I could take advantage, but our travel plans are set.

This is a kind of trip for those who choose flights based on cost alone. My brother takes this kind of flights. For me, there are three things I don't like this kind of flight - PDX-AMS-PDX on USAir mentioned.

1. Both legs require three segments. Layover in PHX and PHL. The latter is often listed as one of the top 10 worst airport in the U.S.
2. The airline is USAir
3. All six legs are on single aisle narrow body planes.

My brother took a flight like this two years ago. The flight was so miserable his wife told him, "I don't want to ever travel to Europe again!"
