Southern California-FRA: Best Fare?

Sun Jan 09, 2005 9:12 am

A friend of mine is going to FRA this summer to visit friends, and he asked me to find out what were some of his flight options. I told him I'd look into it, and so I ask you: what is the lowest fare from Southern California to FRA? He can go from any airport (LAX, SAN, ONT, SNA, etc.) and doesn't mind making a connection but probably prefers non-stop, which would limit his origin airport to LAX. He'd probably fly out in late June, and stay until maybe mid-July or so.

Thank you very much,
Alex

PS. I know I can go to travelocity or expedia but I prefer to ask you guys because I figure you guys know more than the average Joe anyway about this type of thing...

Expedia/etc. is a waste of time for international flights- your friend needs to find an airline consolidator (suggest he does this himself).

My guess is Air India LAX-FRA might end up being the cheapest too early to tell. Perhaps try here: http://www.apc-consolidators.com/rates/specpass.htm

Sometimes the above fares are cheaper than the airline website direct, sometimes not.

I would recommend to contact a Local LAX Indian Consolidator. I am quite sure you should be able to get some good deal on AI!

Hi,

Check out this website: http://www.bt-store.com.

I just booked a R/T e-ticket from LAX-LHR on AC in March for only $324.00. I'm sure they also have good deals to FRA as well.

Hope it helps.

US often has really good deals to FRA specifically and the connections are easy

Is that friend of yours also in the 16-20 age bracket that you've listed in your profile? Then it might be worth it to check youth/student travel agencies and/or websites - I know that they (or should I say we - I work for one of them) don't always have very good fares for short stays, but it still might be worth it...
