HI Aramis,

I don't mind flying through London.

On Air France, I found a flight for 650 from LAX to London, but I hate the thought of 2 transfer cities. I could fly relatively cheaply to Paris and then on the return, I can book a flight from Nice to London direct. What airline did you see the London flight?

Thank you so much for this offer of assistance.

I am looking for Orlando (MCO) to Amsterdam (AMS) on July 16, 2008, anytime; and from Copenhagan (CPH) back to Orlando (MCO) on July 29, 2008, anytime after 12PM.

I'm looking for a flight to FCO in mid-April for two weeks. Our home airport is RIC, but it looks like getting somewhere else on our own and then going to FCO will be cheaper. That likely means departure from either IAD, BWI, PHL or an NYC airport.

Thanks!

By the way, for those 'watching' for flights to go down, check out yapta.com. You can enter specific flight information, it will let you know how it fluctuates. Used in combination with itasoftware.com, it's very useful

I appreciate your offer. I'm experiencing sticker shock.

ATL - Any London airport June 13
and
Any Paris airport - ATL July 3

Can't find anything less than $1060 and was hoping to find a fare up to $200 less before mid-Feb when I get cold feet and book.

Thank you in advance

Aramis,

I'm planning a Europe trip for August '08. It's my first time traveling in high season and I've tried some of the tricks to get a cheaper ticket. I'm willing to fly into almost anywhere in western/central Europe...whichever airport tends to have the best fares. I'll be starting in Minneapolis, MN (MPS), but have searched ORD and JFK also. Cheapest I've found is 1094 for a Tuesday to Tuesday trip to London. I'd like to be gone for 4-6 weeks and must be back by the 30th of August. I was thinking 22-Jul to 26-Aug. I don't care where I fly into, what airline it is, what time the flights are, what seats I have...as long as I get there.

Thanks soooo much for your help.

I could really use some help. Three people, want to fly into Venice and out of Florence or Pisa(or into Florence/Pisa and out of Venice). 10-14 day trip, anytime Sept 8-October 31. Departure airport could be Knoxville TN, Greenville SC, or Asheville NC. Would drive to Atlanta or Charlotte for a good deal. Thank you so much.

The cheapest thing I can see is $974, from ORD on pretty much any Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday to LHR - nonstop on Air India.

The summer pricing is incredibly high right now.

Aramis,
I have run against a snag in our trip. To refresh your memory, we are flying:

DFW to Cairo

PRG to DFW

I'm trying to do the inter-Europe on my own. I simply can't find a one-way from CAI to IST. I did find a RT for (gulp) $943.86 for 2. But I only need a one way for that 2 hour flight on May 9, 2008.

Help!

Brahmama:

I looked around and the best I can find is $297 on Expedia for an Egyptair one-way flight.

Turkish Airlines has a $368 return.

If there are other carriers that do the route non-stop i don't know them.

Hi Aramis,
I could use your help with an immediate flight need. I'm trying to find a reasonable flight for my daughter from Nairobi to Paris. She's in Nairobi right now and wants/needs out ASAP. I saw one on Monday afternoon on Qatar Airlines for $540. Do you see anything for this weekend?

Thanks - I'll keep checking back.
