I haven't booked my flight yet. I wanted to have it booked by now but tickets are over $1000 for the airlines that I am interested in going with - Air France, Lufthansa, British Airways and Air Canada. I have been doing a lot of research on on-line travel sites. There are flights for under $1000 but they're mostly for American airlines - Delta, and United Airlines. They didn't have positive reviews though.
I would like to get a flight between $700-900. The flights that I am interested in don't charge for check in baggage and offer free meals and snacks where most of the other airlines don't. The American airlines also charge for 1st and 2nd checked in baggage. I have been checking the travel sites almost everyday but don't see prices dropping for those 4 airlines.
I read that airlines' prices drop Tues and Wed and to even check prices at 3am on Wed??
I want to book soon. I want to have something for this week. If the 3am thing is true, then I will set my alarm and check prices.
I have my dates - August 11 to November 10/11. I will fly into Rome and then take a train to Lamezia. I thought of taking an internal flight but the baggage restrictions are strict and I don't want to pay anymore fees.
Can I catch the eurostar train from the airport in Rome?
I don't know where to catch the train in Rome and/or whether to book my flight to Lamezia (which is more expensive). I used the 12th of August as my day of departure from the train station because I will arrive the next day into Rome.
I have been getting a lot of advice from other travellers to not make a lot of reservations in advance and to just play it by 'ear'. I'm not concerned about this right now because I will be staying with my family for the first few weeks and I won't be in France until the beginning of September.
