janetnj: Have you ever considered Iceland Air? They fly from Boston and you can get flights for around $800-$900. Nephew had good experience with XL Airways but they don't appear to fly to Paris in February. Nov 11, 2014 21:17:53 GMT -5
geordy: I have thought about it..but on a trip where I might want a stop over Feb I'm looking direct flights only! :D Nov 15, 2014 8:47:07 GMT -5
janetnj: I feel the same way geordy. About 10 years ago I flew to Paris in February for < $500 roundtrip. Seems like now it's hard to find anything for <$1000 - or more. Nov 15, 2014 16:59:18 GMT -5
geordy: Yeah I seems these days for non-stops..fare varies only by a couple of hundred bucks all year round! Nov 15, 2014 20:05:05 GMT -5
geordy: As I was typing that an A/F ad popped up..$1082..Ny to Paris. I'll try again Tues early I've seen for my dates was last Tues. on Delta $1028..but that is also leaving on weekend. Nov 15, 2014 20:09:55 GMT -5
geordy: And even with non stops I may have to enlist the aid of the OPF no snow dancers! And most of them aren't here anymore! Nov 15, 2014 20:12:19 GMT -5
Shoesy: Well, you can count on me to do some extra no-snow dancing to make up for those who are no longer active. ;) Nov 15, 2014 23:59:47 GMT -5
geordy: I knew I could count on you Shoesy! Nov 16, 2014 8:40:18 GMT -5
janetnj: geordy, you can count on me too, but with my dancing skills you'd probably end up with a blizzard! Nov 16, 2014 10:16:51 GMT -5
rachelnyc: Geordy, have you checked Open Skies? It's a subsidiary of BA & flies nonstop from jfk & ewr to Orly. I got prem economy (bigger seats, 2x2 seating, not just a few extra inches leg room) for $1100 over Xmas/NYE. Eco was under $1000. Nov 16, 2014 11:59:01 GMT -5
rachelnyc: This will be my 1st time flying them tho so can't vouch for airline yet. Nov 16, 2014 11:59:52 GMT -5
geordy: I will check them out Rachel! When did you purchase? Nov 16, 2014 12:08:50 GMT -5
rachelnyc: I purchased in September for the Holiday travel. Nov 17, 2014 9:21:48 GMT -5
geordy: Just checked fares as they sometimes go down early Tuesdays..same. Its the principle at this point.... Nov 18, 2014 5:36:41 GMT -5
geordy: Open Skies too..actually higher this AM..I see they list American Airline flts as well..are yours on actual Open Skies? I'll be interested in your review! Though I've been anti BA for years from a real bad experience... Nov 18, 2014 5:45:10 GMT -5
rachelnyc: Sadly, I think the airlines & their algorithms have gotten too good to predict anymore... Nov 18, 2014 10:08:37 GMT -5
rachelnyc: Yes my flights are operated by open skies, purchased through BA. Sorry to hear about your bad experience on BA. I recently switched from United to American so I am now flying them & their OneWorld partners. Nov 18, 2014 10:14:06 GMT -5
rachelnyc: When I was searching, open skies had the prem eco product at the same price as eco on other carriers so I figured we should give it a shot. I'll let u know in about 5 weeks! :) Nov 18, 2014 10:15:24 GMT -5
Sandy M: For what it's worth, I recently saw a report on the best days to purchase airfares - used to be Tuesdays for lower fares but this article said that the besy day now is Sunday afternoon??? They really didn't say why - just that it seemed to the best day? Nov 18, 2014 15:13:08 GMT -5
geordy: Ah Ha...but whose Sunday afternoon? Time zone, time?...the airline mystery!!! Nov 22, 2014 8:33:42 GMT -5
