Suggestions For Flights From SFO-KY

Thu Nov 08, 2007 6:25 am

I need to find a flight from SFO to Louisville, KY for travel at the end of this month. It is no problem finding a flight but they are quite expensive $600 +. Are there any other options, ie: other near by airports to fly into, or suggestions.

Thanks much.

It's 325 dollars out of Sacramento at the end of the month on CO.
It's 244 dollars out of San Jose on CO as well.
Saw the fare on Expedia.

SDF is within 60-90 minutes' drive of LEX, CVG, and IND. Oh, and EVV, too. Of those, IND is probably your best bet for a cheap fare from SFO (but I don't necessarily mean non-stop).

It's Thanksgiving. Good luck.

Well, depending on the dates you can find some low-fare pockets. Only the days real close to Thanksgiving are that bad (i.e. Tuesday-Wednesday that week, plus the rest of that weekend)

The only non-stops to that entire area that I can tell are a Delta San Francisco to Cincinnati (notoriously expensive) or Southwest Oakland to Nashville. For the latter option, good choices for decent-priced outbound flights (to Nashville) are currently 11/14-17, 11/19, 11/22-23, and 11/27-30. Good return choices are available on 11/14-16, 11/18-19, 11/22, and 11/28-30. These choices cost $237. However, in some cases a stop is required to get the cheap fare, and PFCs can up the fare to $240 or $243 or so.

If you want to go right to Louisville, regardless of stops, the cheapest I see on Southwest is $400 for all of November, but some other airlines might be cheaper. The same applies for SFO and OAK. However, if you are willing to use San Jose, you can fly SJC-MDW-SDF-LAS-SJC for $258 on the correct dates.

Do you have specific dates or an acceptable range? This will help us find the best fare for you.
