Midwest to Paris in June - if you find a good price can you post it?

I know this kind of posting makes some people upset and the "How do I find a good airfare?" has been done to death but I am helping friends take their first trip to Europe and my reputation as a good 'amateur travel agent' is sinking fast. Two weeks ago I argued against booking a $950ish fare from Minneapolis to Paris and told them it was too high. It is now close to $1800 for the same flights!!!! It is on Icelandair, which has the best connecting times for them, as they are also going to Italy. So, although I feel the prices will return to the 'cheap' $950 range, if anyone finds any good deals, Mps - Cdg, June 7-19, can you post a heads up? I do the kayak, mobbisimo, etc. thing but maybe not as diligently as when I was looking for tickets for our trip, when I was checking 5 times a day. Merci!

Just keep checking. No need to do it 5 times a day. Just maybe daily. You have plenty of time.

We fly out of MSP and found a great fare on www.flycheapabroad.com

Otherwise keep up what you're doing...


I am also having problems with my reputation as a good 'amateur travel agent' as these prices continue to rise!

Just an update. That flight on Icelandair that was just over $900 less than 2 weeks ago is now....$2500 on itasoftware.com! Wha??!!! OK, now that is complete insanity.

Fare class availability comes and goes. That's normal. No need to panic right now with a June travel date.
