My husband and I are traveling to Europe (Nice > Rome > Florence > Salzburg > Munich) in May 2017 and I have a couple airline questions.
- Should we book Economy or upgrade for our longest flight (~8 hours) which is a red-eye? We are 5'6" and 6", thin in body size and I've heard upgrading is often worth it for longer travel and the leg space; your thoughts?
- Along those same lines, I've been looking through Skyscanner and Kayak for tickets and I'm not seeing an option to upgrade only one flight. It seems you can either search in Economy, Business, or First class for all your flights. Any suggestions on only upgrading our longest flight using these search engines?
- We're flying one-way so we can fly home (Minneapolis, MN) through Munich. Right now, November 2016, one-way tickets for May 2017 are about $900 from Minneapolis to Nice. Tickets from Munich to Minneapolis are around $600. Are these prices reasonable or should I hold off and wait for prices to drop?
I haven't flow international to Europe since 2003 and my husband hasn't been out of the country, he's very excited! I realize international travel has likely changed a lot in the past 10+ years, so any other suggestions on airline travel is appreciated! Thanks!
