Who's going to Europe in September 2010? What's your airfare?

Trying to have an idea of what people are paying... Please post:

1. Your origin city
2. Your destination
3. Approx dates (beginning or middle or end of Sept?)
3. Airline
4. Price (R/T including tax/fees)

Philadelphia to Paris in early September on USAir for $866 total. The pain is eased somewhat, since one of us is on an award ticket, so it's only $946 total for 2.

We're flying direct, Washington Dulles to Rome for $910 on United in mid September. We used miles for economy plus seats which are slightly larger.

1. Houston
2. Frankfurt
3. mid to end Sept
4. American
5. $780

We opted to pay an add'l $350 pp plus miles to upgrade to Biz Class on the outbound flight.

I also purchased another ticket DFW-FRA for same time frame on American for $882 for a friend who will be traveling with us. Surprising that it is cheaper to fly from Houston to Frankfurt than from DFW.

Milwaukee to Copenhagen - return from Amsterdam
September - going first part of Sept and returning end of Sept
Lufthansa
$1060

The rate flying out of Milwaukee is always higher so you can't judge by that.

I am using FF miles. However, My 2 friends are going 9/3 to 9/26. SFO to CDG and back (non-stop over, 1 stop on return)
$1295 each on Air France and KLM for the return.

Seems steep but they waited too long - could have had RT for $1100 back in March or $945 one stop. (It's all a gamble).

I read on a tread that you are somewhat an expert on Prague. We're thinking of Prague/Budapest. Do you have any trip reports you could give me the link to?

No, cd, I am not an expert on Prague, since I've never been! In fact, I don't consider myself an expert on anything!

We do travel to Germany and Austria regularly and I'd be happy to try to help you or anyone else with travel to those countries.

I wish I was departing in September, but my travel companion needed to be back by 9/7. Rates really dropped for my flights after 9/1.

1. Lexington, KY
2. Zurich via 13 hour layover in AMS (I scheduled this in)
3. 8/22 - 9/7
4. Delta/KLM
5. $1039
You didn't ask return city:
6. I'm flying open jaw so my return flight is departing Rome.

No problem, cd. I'm sure it gave a few Fodorites some chuckles!

BOS to LHR, nonstop, 9/4 -9/14 on American, $771.... well sort of, I actually paid $857, but then it went down within 24 hours, so AA credited me the difference in the form of a voucher good for a year.
