UK Peeps!

March 4th, 2017 at 08:41 am

Do you have any idea why roundtrip tickets, non-stop to London, are $500 from the west coast?? Right now, for tickets in October. British Airways.

My husband told me that his co-worker mentioned and I thought it was just a credit card rewards thing. Didn't think too much about it. But I just spent one minute on google flights and it's for reals! (Just to say, you don't have to look very hard to find).

For reference, I've absolutely never priced tickets to Europe and have no idea how prices generally fluctuate.

I've often chose vacation destinations solely based on incredible airfare deals. So... The odds that we will go to Englad in October?? Looking very high at the moment. Big Grin Just curious what is up with that. Don't know how quickly we should jump on it.

If you have any hotel recommendations, I guess that might be useful too.


Edited to add: I guess I am slow to get the memo since international flights aren't on my radar *at all*.

I've seen articles going back about 9 months, so am not going to rush out and buy airfare today. But I think that we will seriously consider a fall trip.

    Wow. I have no idea why they're that price, sorry

    According to the news, the cabin crew are in strike this week over "poverty pay". But that shouldn't affect October prices though. Hmm.

    I also saw that EU is thinking about requiring visas for US visitors, but this co-worker had already bought tickets so don't think that is related either.

    I guess this may explain it.

    I heard a while ago that fares to Europe were very low; I'm not sure why.

    Lucky! They're almost twice that from the Midwest.

    Sometimes I just find they're all over the place. They're higher from Chicago than from the West Coast. October is a traditional shoulder season--lots of folks go in September. I have lots of London recs if when you start making plans.

    Norwegian is really putting the pressure on everyone else.
