Wondering what you guys think
I'm looking to go home for Christmas, and the flights this year seem tight (they're charging a lot). My options seem to be NW, by BOS-DTW-NRT-HKG roundtrip for about 1100, and CO with BOS-EWR-HKG, but that's 1600. Everything else is topping 2000 USD (CX for example, is 2200, although I'd really like to fly their A346s on the JFK-HKG route).
Think prices will drop as it gets closer? My suspicion is that it won't, although I'm not sure if I should at least wait a bit and see if discount fares may show up. Just wondering what you all airline gurus think... I might just go with CO even though it's more expensive. The 777 isn't that nice, but at least it gets me there in a timely manner. The NW flight will be 27 hours with transfers, ugh.
