Hi all you travel gurus. I've flown to Europe quite often and I normally I would not ask this question because I know that no one has 'the' right answer. But that being said, I would like your experienced opinion. This summer I will be flying open-jaws from Portland (OR) to Kiev (June 18 or 19) and flying back from Brussels to Portland (July 17). It's going to be an expensive flight no matter what because of destination and peak travel time, but of course I would like to minimize the cost if possible. Since I've been watching these flights they have been anywhere from $1490 to mid $1800's depending on when I check them. This is for 1-stop flights each way which is what I would prefer (I know I could get 2-stop flights that last for 24 hrs or more that are cheaper). Lately they have been steadily rising and staying around $1700. Today they are at $1634 and I'm tempted to bite the bullet and go for it but it's still 5 months out. I think I would feel ok if I jumped at this price and then it went down a bit later but I'm so nervous, it's so much money.
If you were me what would you do, jump now or wait and watch for a few more weeks?
Thanks for your insight.
