The first question is where will you be flying from?

In my opinion, your best option is non-stop on Continental from EWR, as Barcelona has only three non-stop flights from the United States: CO from EWR, Delta from JFK, and, seasonally, US Airways from PHL. With a one-stop, options go up considerably.

British via LHR

Thanks

In the summer? The obvious choice is to fly DL non-stop from ATL-BCN.

Ermm, I don't honestly think that is the 'best' way... I am sure he would want to avoid LHR at all costs.

Agree 100%. Connecting at LHR should be avoided if at all possible.

From PIT or CLE. I figured that did not really matter since no matter what I can get to the airports in the US that fly to BCN.

What would be a reasonable fare? I was recently looking at flights and they were around $1100 RT. I could probably do CLE-EWR-BCN for a decent fare right? Since it is connecting two CO hubs?

If you want a cheap Biz flight try an Air India flight from both ORD and JFK to LHR, CDG or FRA from just 1300.00 Euros.

After it, try to take a low cost flight to arrive to BCN.

If you need a local guide, please let me know.

Number of ways...

If you want a bargain way to get the Barcelona and not too concern about the level of service or comfort...

Try FlyGobeSpan.com which will be flying daily between JFK-LPL and from there book a seat with a low cost carrier...

Ryanair can fly you from Liverpool - Barcelona/Gerona for about £20 each way or if you want to fly to Barcelona's main airport easyJet fly to BCN from LPL for about £35 each way. As both airlines have hubs at Liverpool.

Flights with FlyGlobeSpan are about £120 each way including taxes even during the summer!

If you want business class accross the Atlantic try SilverJet between EWR and LTN for about £799 return (inc tax) and book flights from LTN on to Barcelona with Ryanair or Easyjet as both again have hubs at LTN.

Don't know if it is the best way, but for me it looks like taking IB from BOS to MAD and then hopping on one of their A320s to BCN.

Depends on when you want to travel. It is more expensive in summer. In May, you can get from BOS-BCN for less than $700 RT on IB, AA, and LH. If you would rather travel from JFK, AF, AA, and BA offer flights for less than $700 RT and DL's nonstop is $900. Also for less than $700 if you don't mind flying a combination of CO and TP. CO nonstop is less than $800.

If you're travelling from PIT perhaps US PIT-PHL-BCN might be a good plan? US Transat is quite nice apparently.
