Help With Booking A Specific Itinerary

Tue Jul 05, 2005 3:09 am

In December I want to travel from IAH to NCE. My preference is to connect in the U.S. rather than in Europe, DL is the only US airline that travels directly to NCE. So my preferred itineraries are IAH to JFK on CO, and then connect on DL JFK to NCE.

I’ve tried both CO and DL websites, but they offer itineraries that are not what I’m looking for.
Is there an easy way to book the itinerary I want, over the web? Or do I have to call customer service? Perhaps a CO or DL guru can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Very welcome.

There were about 5 itneraries from IAH-EWR, JFK-NCE

Make sure to try to leave 4 hours betwwen flights just to be safe between JFK-EWR for traffic customs, etc. That return was a little tight at 2 hrs 50.

Im not sure that was his wish, I think he wanted to go into JFK and not EWR.

Best way is to simply call reservations (you might even try calling NW 1-800-225-2525, and tell them what you want) Though, it will probably cost you more to do the routing you want, your more likely to get a cheaper fare connecting through AMS, going IAH-AMS-VCE all on KLM.

CO has a flight from IAH at 10:47 AM arriving at JFK at 3:29PM that would work.

If he just plays with Orbitz a bit he will get his connections I am sure.

Chris- I don't think he wants to connect in AMS, he said JFK. Only you would point out Northwest Airlines  Wink

As 1millionflyer pointed out Orbitz does it quite well. Good luck with ur searchs.
