Need Help For Cheap Transatlantic Flight

Tue May 02, 2006 6:12 am

Hi I am planning my first Europe trip with some buddies from school and we are looking for the most inexpensive way possible to get to Europe via either Phoenix, Las Vegas, Or Los Angeles. We would prefer to fly into London or Paris really anywhere in Western or Central Europe but it doesn't really make a difference. We can leave anytime between December 16-23 and return sometime Jan 4-12. Thanks a lot for your help!

Perhaps try Aer Lingus from LAX to Dublin. They usually have quite good fares.

Thanks a lot on the Aer Lingus tip, I just need the more options the better really but Aer Lingus with 438 round trip definitely in my price range.

From the west there arent a lot of choices. However if you were willing to spend around $450. You can always take an LCC to JFK and from there you can take KU, AI, BA, VS, or even EI from JFK to LHR. If it helps, KU is cheap and they rock!

well the cost to get to the east coast would override my costs. So it really needs to be from one of those three places either LAS, PHX, or LAX.

Just to give you a price reference, LAX-ZRH with LX is $557 + taxes ($211). Sorry, don't know anything cheaper...

Air India might be a place to look. The often have cheap deals from the East Coast and might from the West Coast too. They fly LAX to FRA.
