Can anybody please tell me the cheapest flight from MSP-DAC? Departing Dec. 18,2004 and coming back on Jan 16.2005.

The figure I am getting is very high and looking for a reasonable price.

Thanks (if you choose to read or respond.)

Have you tried Biman from JFK via BRU to DAC and a cheap flight from MSP to JFK?


Where have all the tri-jets gone...

I couldn't price it for you, but Biman flies from JFK-DAC on Tuesdays and Saturdays. You could take Sun Country to JFK and then connect to Biman.

On the outbound, you can fly on 12/18, but due to availability and Biman connectivity, youd have to fly back to get your Sun Country flight on 1/18.

The Sun Country ticket for those dates is $250. I dont know how much the Biman tickets are (Cant figure out where to get a price), but presumably, the entire thing would be cheaper then the 3700 ticket I'm finding from Expedia.

Hope this helps a little

I have an unorthodox, slightly risky solution.

What I would recommend is making two interlocking separate tickets, one round trip between MSP and whichever port, be it LAX or JFK, that you will fly to DAC, and then that port to DAC; so one, let's say MSP-LAX (should cost about 300), and another LAX-DAC (should be as little as 1200). So you could get away with about 1500, which seems reasonable. Your luggage can be checked all the way through on the interline.

You run the risk of missing a connection between the two tickets. Let's say that you end up back in LAX late, and miss your onward connection to MSP; the airline on that second ticket is not obliged to rebook you, and you may be subject to fees, because as far as they are concerned, you simply showed up late and missed your flight. So what I do is schedule a lot of breathing room between the two tickets to make sure I don't miss my onwards flight on the second ticket. It is also a pain if you need to change your travel plans, because now you have two tickets to deal with.

If you can afford and plan for this risk, then go for it. I have done it several times internationally, and saved 50%. One time I went LAX to Dakar (which is generally routed via Paris). The whole ticket on Air France was 2200. The two separate tickets were 1100 for the same flight numbers! I got it even cheaper by flying United to Paris.

It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

Netdhaka,

Not sure of the prices your getting, I got $3,702.60 on those dates, with connections in BOS and LHR on the way and BKK and NRT on the way back. I got $1,940.25 leaving Dec. 18th and returning the 15th of Jan. with connections in IAD and LHR on the way and LHR and ORD on the way back, so if you could leave one day sooner from DAC you are looking at around $1700 savings.
