I was trying to book a LYS
trip. My main two options were basically Air France via CDG
both ways, BA
, and KLM/CO via AMS
. The prices quoted on the latter two were ridiculously high, so process of elimination takes me to Air France, which I don't mind, as I've never had a bad experience flying with them for as long as I can remember.
The Air France USA site would let me do a multiple destination itinerary, but would not let me choose an origin outside the US other than Paris, so no go there. The UK and France sites let me leave from LYS
, but did not have an option for multiple destinations.
Travelocity, which usually I find to be a good site, let me pick that specific itinerary, but I had to tell it specifically to search Air France. Otherwise, it routed me through AMS
on KLM and and gave me the same ridiculous fare from earlier, go figure. It also kept crashing on the purchase page so I could never actually buy the ticket.
After much swearing and impatience, I called the AF
ticket office and just gave them the same itinerary I built on travelocity. It was actually cheaper than what travelocity listed by a few bucks.
Anyway, now I've got the entire thing hammered out. I've booked multiple destination travel before, and never had this much of a hassle.
The itinerary puts me on an A332, my first flight on an A330. Also get to ride on one of the new A318's to CDG
