How do people end up paying so much for airfare?
Paying over $350 for a ticket from the eastern U.S. to Europe is completely insane. Yet I see people all the time BRAGGING about getting a one way ticket for $800.
Read an article on cheap airfaire between U.S. and Europe, they'll list prices in the high hundreds or low thousands.
What is this shit?
>Paying over $350 for a ticket from the eastern U.S. to Europe is completely insane.
I don't go to Europe much, but in my experience paying over $350 is absolutely standard. I can barely fly cross-country in the US for so little. I'd be curious to know why you think otherwise.
I live in Florida with 2 majors nearby (within 4 hours driving) and have gotten 180 to Colombia, 200 to Peru, 400 to Brazil. I've seen 500 to London out of Orlando multiple times, but 350 is pretty crazy.
Protip for Burgers from a Bong: don't fly from major international tourist destinations (aka Florida or New York), Yuropeans snap them disneyland and 9/11 flights up quick. Fly from Boston, Atlanta, etc.
For even cheaper flights don't fly to London or Paris, try Amsterdam, Oslo or other hubs which aren't major destinations. Start your yurotrip from there or get connecting flight from a low cost airline, there's loads.
I'm in Florida haven't seen a trip to Philippines for less than 1,000 been looking for 2 years. Anyone know how to get a cheap price? Also
How did you fly standby? Ever airline told me they don't do it anymore. Serious interest
Mom's friend works for an airline (don't remember which one). She can choose like 2 or 3 people to put on her account who can fly cheap up to like 20 times a year (each connection, so LA to New York with a connection in chicago would count as 2 flights). Original price of the ticket before she worked her magic was $1,018 round trip.
>Can fly to fucking anywhere in Europe/Eastern Europe from anywhere between 20 euros to 150
>Most of the time can't fly to England because price goes to 300+
I tell ya hwhat it's a fucking miracle I managed to find a return trip with luggage this month for 70 euros total. Trains though, what the fuck? I'm going to spend a bit more than my flight ticket's cost to go from Luton to Reading and back again. And prices just went up a bit more!
We get absolutely fucked on train fares m8. Same as on energy prices, for some reason they're way higher than the rest of Europe.
If you don't mind the bus National Express or Easybus will shuttle you to central London where you can get a National Express or Megabus to Reading.
Yeah, I looked into it. It would just be too much of a hassle and takes fucking ages. I've never been to London, I'm arriving alone with a backpack and luggage and with trains I'm already having 4 stops including a tube ride. I have to do the same at night when I come back home. I don't want to get lost or mugged, nor do I want to waste a day just being on the bus.
Rather put up with a bit more money spent and get to where I need to be as efficiently and quickly as possible to avoid any problems.
It seems that way. Bummer is I actually need to move to England for my career at some point, and London is where it's all at. How the fuck do people afford to live there and get around? Can you even do that shit on a part-time job? The alternative is to live outside London and train it whenever I have work. Perhaps if I have multiple days, I'd find a cheap hostel and stay there instead of using the train so much.
Either way, I can't see it working out for me unless I go up with a few thousand pounds just to keep me alive until I get stable.
Flew from Boston to Germany to Serbia, $350 ticket from Lufthansa.
Could have also flown for $250 if I waited a few months with Norwegian Air.
Wowair and Norwegian air offer the best prices (usually like $350 or so from U.S. to Europe)
Bought two separate one ways in and out of Europe for $900 when all said and done. Just be flexible with dates and cities and you should be fine. Skiplagged is a good app to start with
