Are you talking the 1st week of July of 2007????? That's just a couple of weeks from now! I doubt there are any "promo offers".

Sorry...but unless there's some last minute fare for a quick weekend jaunt on some airline, I think you're pretty much going to have to suck it up and pay the big bucks.

Summer airfare is not known to be cheap.

But you're making so much MORE now than you used to!

I'd check at least www.itasoftware.com (you could also use the "month long" feature as well as onetravel.com but I think the others are right about paying the current prices out there.

Have you considered flying somewhere such as London and taking a budegt flight from there? Might not be worth the hassle but you never know

www.skyscanner.net for budget flights within Europe

A lot depends where you are traveling from, and how flexible you are. So from what area are you departing?

Thanks so much to all of you. Will be checking all the sites that you have recommended so far.
I am flexible between last week of JUne and first week of July. Want to spend 9/10 days in Spain/Portugal.

someone told me at work that I can try to do JFK<->London RT andthen take EURO to Barcelona ad back from Lisbon to London.
Has any one done that? Any suggetsions/tips?

Regards,

P.S not really making more money than I used to. rather went thru few hoops to save my job w/lower salary.

Yes sir I see that one of you have suggested skyscanner for europe internal flights.
Does anyone know about a good deal JFK/EWR<->London? I find that is even so expensive now!!!

With FlyGlobespan, you might be able to get a good rate from JFK to Liverpool or Knock.

From either, you can likely get a cheap flight to Spain.

If not from there, megabus.com will take you from Liverpool to London for a few pounds and you can try London. It is a hassle, particularly if you have only a week.

Were you possibly referring to Europe by Air flightpasses above, for internal Europe flights?

Have you also tried, just out of curiousity, looking at flights from Newark rather than JFK? Either direct (Conti) or with one stop (Air Portugal)
