I have been watching these flights and finally purchased them a few days ago. They are 60 Euros compared to 80 Euros previously through middle of June. I had recalled that someone said they had purchased this same flight for 40 Euros last year but decided not to push my luck by waiting to see if price would be reduced further as there are not that many flights a day and the planes are small.
Now I still need to buy transatlantic flights. A few questions.
Has anyone used Justfly to purchase tickets? I have never heard of them but flights came up on skyscanner. I typically use search engines to find flights and then purchase directly from airline but there are some combination of airline flights that have reasonable prices and times. The price to purchase a SAS ticket (one of the airlines) from the web site one way is three times a round trip ticket. Unfortunately, the return trip would take in excess of 20 hours and thus why I am interested in purchasing tickets on different airlines for going and coming from Athens. But if this isn't a good idea, I can go up in price about $100 and buy a different ticket.
I know there is a visa dispute between US and Turkey. Does anyone know whether that has affected ease of travel through Istanbul in route to and from Athens? There are some very well priced tickets that my daughter and husband have been looking at from Atlanta to Athens on Turkish Airways. They would not leave the airport.
