Chicago - Give Me Some "razzle Dazzle"!

Wed Feb 12, 2003 5:44 am

Don't worry, it's an aviation question (although you've probably heard about the movie getting 13 Oscar nominations!)

I'm going to Chicago in September for a wedding and I want to consider a few options. Number one, for me, if available, would be Lufthansa via FRA, with two provisos:
(a) United - if it's still flying then - one way
(b) A340-600 with LH

That may be a bit of a long shot, so what else is possible?

- Swiss via ZRH, A330 (PTVs are a must)
- BA from LHR (a little boring, perhaps?)

How would you go, given the choice?

The US Airways website is showing a $680.50 rtn flight,DUB>ORD vv.Flights with 762 and 733.734.

Flights x LGW with the A333 via PHL are showing as $750.50.

If you shop around you could get it cheaper via another outlet,such as e-bookers or Trailfinders.

Continental LGW via Houston, Newark, and/or Cleveland. Heck, you may even get a chance to fly on B777 'Peter Max' (N77014)
