Budapest - Vienna - Prague (thoughts and options)

We're arriving into Budapest on 9/22. Original plan is to go to Vienna on 9/25, then Prague 9/28. We Have an open jaw ticket out of Prague. So far, I have bought MAV train tickets and Orangeway bus tickets from Budapest to Vienna for 9/25 as backup. Both were cheap so I don't mind losing them if it comes down to that. Maybe we should just skip Vienna altogether if we can find a decent airfare to Prague....

Hi James,
What airline do you suggest for Budapest to Prague for $125? The fares I'm finding are $350 nonstop. Those under $200 have crazy connections and take 6-9 hours.

I know the situation is very fluid so just trying to be flexible with contingency. I'd appreciate thoughts and suggestions on any of the above. THANKS!

I looked it up for a guest a few weeks back
I thought it was Czech air but may have been a discount carrier. Don't remember. At this late date u probably won't find a cheap fare. Sorry can't help much right now. In Dubrovnik with only a cell phone.

I would be somewhat optimistic. It looks like border between Serbia and Hungary is finally sealed and migrants will look for different way to Austria and Germany. Probably through Croatia and Slovenia.
