We are planning our honeymoon and need some advice on airline tickets. We plan to leave Atlanta on May 4 and fly into Paris, arriving on the 5th. We will stay there either until Friday, the 8th or Saturday, the 9th. Then we intend to head to Santorini via Athens, with plans to stay in Santorini for a week. We will end in Athens before flying back to Atlanta.
We plan to fly Delta to Paris and from Athens because of FF and medallion status. Currently, we are planning to purchase our ticket from Paris to Athens through Delta as part of our overseas fare. It looks like our best option to Santorini is via Athens on Aegean Air. My questions are: 1) whether Aegean Air works like it does in the states where flights on Saturday tend to be cheaper than flights on Friday (right now, they appear to be the same); 2) is there another airline we should be considering to get us from Paris to Santorini through another connection point; and 3) is it likely that Aegean Air will have fare sales for May again this year? (We weren't ready to bite the bullet when cheap fares were released earlier this fall).
Thanks in advance for any insight.
