This Continental Fare Yea Or Nea?

Sun Jun 04, 2006 1:40 am

Hey Everyone,

Since I am getting laid off this fall/winter I am going to catch up with some family and do some travelling in Europe. I looked at Continental and they seem to have the best deal, not to mention the best service for the U.S. domestic routes. So anyway this is the itenarary and I know it's hard to tell, but for the routing I have to say the price seems pretty good, so what does everyone think? Should I move on this or should I wait and see if the fare comes down any?

I'd grab that now before it goes up in case some of the seats on those flights get snatched up and if that was the only seat on the partiuclar fight at that price, then the fare will increase some.

that sounds like a pretty good deal for a trip like that, i'd go for it, interesting that they're downgrading 667 to a 739 in October, i'm flying on that flight in september and it's operating with a 753!
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!
