I can't believe what I just booked. I needed a Europe to West Coast USA flight for next spring, so I shopped around a bit and got 500-600 EUR which is really good. Then I tried Dublin as point of departure because I have often found great fares out of DUB
and it's really cheap to get into from anywhere in Europe, and amazingly I got a 430 EUR fare into SFO
for lots of different dates beginning as early as November 2012 and well into June 2013.
I was really happy with this and almost booked it. Then I realized I actually need sort of a multi city, I need to fly into Montreal and fly out of San Francisco. OMG! I got 395 EUR which is an amazing fare, and I get to fly on an MD11!
Now I realize you can't rely on an aircraft type specified in the schedule half a year earlier, but hey I'll give it a shot!
So long story short, I'm flying DUB
on Aer Lingus / KLM MD11, and back SFO
on Delta, this is 10.000 miles of flying for 395 EUR. I tried several different dates over a span of many months and I always get similar fares.
Only you have to fly out of DUB
, and apparently the flight back needs to be out of SFO
So here's your chance to fly on an MD11 for cheap!
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home
