Need Help With LHR - ORD Tickets

Mon Feb 27, 2012 2:57 pm

Hello... I have a friend coming to Chicago in July.. Been looking for tickets, but the prices seem to fluctuate quite often.

Question for this noob is, does anyone know the best time to buy these tickets? Best website to book? I'd like for them to not get any higher than 1300-1400 USD. Would be even better if someone knew of any awesome deals that pop up anytime soon. 

Help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Sorry, not sure what you are looking at but the prices I am getting are much lower ...

Dummy query via Matrix (http://matrix.itasoftware.com) for 1 month with stay of 7 days during July between London and Chicago yields prices starting as low as $1208 on EI via DUB, $1213 on KL via AMS, and so on; the lowest direct is $1308 and at this price you can choose flying on AA, VS or BA, followed by $1323 on UA ...

It was as low as 1200 nonstop just 2-3 days ago.. Now I feel like an idiot for wasting that opportunity.. :/

Btw, date should be around July 4 - July 24. Can be flexible.

You did not say whether the flights should be direct or not? Anyway ...

For a direct flight, the lowest price is again $1308 on any of AA, VS or BA.

If a one-stop is fine, you can go as low as $1214 for this itinerary:
4 JUL DL 0019 LHR DTW 0950 1230 767
4 JUL DL 1493 DTW ORD 1520 1539 M80
23 JUL DL 2165 ORD DTW 1815 2039 DC9
23 JUL DL 0018 DTW LHR 2220 1105 767

It's the exact same price on BA.com. It might save the hassle of 3rd party, although saying that I had no problems with expedia booking my last trip so each to their own.
