I don't know if 2 stops is just what you have to do from Seattle

Can you recommend the most inexpensive way for me to travel from the NY area (prefer EWR) to TOS

Thanks!

Tromso, Norway - thats a first for me.

I can see $892 inclusive from EWR with 2 stops Copenhagen and Oslo on the way out and Oslo and Munich on the way back for the 22 and 29th.

For your exact dates $904 through Frankfurt Oslo/Munich.

If that interests you let me know and I will get more specific.

Ahhh, the long weekend in Roma.

I hope you are reading this and can act quickly.

There is a wealth of stuff out there for $529 inclusive from JFK with one stop each way right on up to about $608 for a non-stop on Alitalia and $645 on Delta.

Expedia is showing about thos same prices right now (only slightly higher so that is your easiest way to snag them.

MaiTaiTom, how about Europe by Air passes for that Krakow to Dubrovnik flight? Personally I'd rearrange my itinerary, though (which might be silly of me, but I like to have multiple easy options for intra-Europe transport).

Hello Aramis. When's the best time to buy for:

Seattle/Tacoma to Paris (Charles de Gaulle)

Leave June 17, 2008
Return July 2, 2008

We're hoping for a direct flight (thru Air France or Delta??) for 4 adults.

MERCI!!

PHL is the cheapest, with one stop, at about $500 - 520 for most Tues/Wed in August. Thursday - Saturday's are more like $540 - $600

ORD is $684 for the whole month, it seems on Alaska Airlines - nonstop.

CVG does not compare at $745

Hi Aramis,
I am hoping to go to Italy in May. Preferable dates are May 21 - May 30. I live in CT and could fly out of either BDL, JFK or BOS. I am flexible with dates and itinerary, but would like to fly into Venice and out from Rome. I am very flexible, but let me know if I need to be more specific.

Thanks in advance!

I can only find $1350 for your dates - any departure airports.

However, Iberia is showing $880 if you stick with Venice in Italy, out of Hartford.

For $500 I would find my way back to Venice from Rome - even a 1 way is doable - leave lots of connect time.

And $880 for May is probably as good as you will get to Italy

The one way fares from Rome to Venice are showing at $152 on Alitalia - non-stop of course and there are plenty each day.

Hi Aramis,

I will take you up on your offer. Looking to go to Paris from SFO at the end of May. Throwing in a side trip for about 4 days in Nice, preferrably at the end. I'm allowing 12 days for the trip, and I would like to take advantage of the Memorial Day holiday off. The best I've come up with is 1200

Prices are real high on this route - lots of people are asking to get out of Seattle - too much rain?

I am getting around $`1200 too in my searches.

I can find nonstop flights to LHR for $854 that get in early and leave late so that you could book a connecting flight to Paris

LHR Paris return are about $199.

Thats not much savings, I know so you might just have to wait and see if the price comes down from $1200. I don't think it will come down much.
