I would jump on them ASAP. I am not sure they aren't mistakes as the fares from east coast cities are far more.

This is one time I would buy first and then figure the rest of the trip out later.

Good luck!

I finally got some help from a United agent, since there was a technical problem on the website. The agent was very helpful. I have a flight from Seattle to Frankfurt, then another a couple of hours later to Helsinki. Both are non-stop, which is very important to me. Not staying overnight at Frankfurt, since I have a good connection.

I want to depart out of Warsaw, so I have a non-stop to Frankfurt, then another non-stop to Seattle. For $1660.

For me, comfort is more important than price, but I thought this price was pretty good, considering the multi-city itinerary.

Peg--We also fly out of Seattle and that fare sounds decent from our experience. Glad you got connections you like, etc.

We usually start looking at tickets as soon as we know we are going somewhere. This last time we bought tickets only 3 months out as that was all the notice we had. We are flying Iceland Air and doing a stopover for a few days for fun. Doing that vs flying on Delta saved us over $600 per ticket for our dates, etc.

Our DS will be doing a study abroad, and I hate not having the dates for that yet, which means I can't start looking at tickets. I suggested to him to do the Iceland stopover thing though, and he loved that idea.
