I’m on a family trip right now so haven’t had much time to play with this, much less blog about it, but I wouldn’t be worth my weight it miles if I didn’t tell you to read up on how to fly on United operated flights to Europe, Middle East, Australia, and beyond for literally just a couple hundred dollars round trip. Essentially, when you book via Wideroe, the fuel surcharges aren’t being collected. This won’t last long, so don’t waste time thinking too hard if you want in.
I priced my family of three from Houston to Dublin for $780 round trip all-in for the three of us. Yes, it is coach. No, that wouldn’t be much fun. However, that is $780 for three round trip tickets, and that isn’t even near the best deal out there. Newark to Milan round trip can be found for around $150 USD. From what I know, the dates seem to be good through the end of March 2014. There is a risk these won’t be honored, but may be worth it. Roughly divide by 6 to convert NOK (Norwegian Krone) to USD.
Read up before deciding if this is for you, but if you want to fly on a United operated flight and are okay with coach, then this is as cheap as it is going to get. If only vacation days weren’t limited. I’m likely just window shopping and not booking, but even browsing is pretty fun. One last tip is to make sure to use the my dates are flexible option so you can easily spot some of the lowest prices.
Anyone get in on this?
