I have a question about airfares using sites such as Kayak.com. Europebyair.com & other consolidators.
Hubby & I would like to fly from Seattle to Venice on Xmas Day 2007. And then fly home from Rome on Jan. 11th.
I have found the itinerary & airline we would like to fly using Europebyair.com:
NWA/KLM departs Seattle at 12:50pm and arrives in Venice at 11:20am; then departs Rome at 9:15am and arrives in Seattle at 2:30pm.
The fare is great on Europebyair (just under $1000 per person). But when I go to purchase the ticket I get an error, "KL 6033..." which is a reference to one of the return flights. I called Customer Service and they told me that the airline was blocking the sale... there was nothing they could do about it.
Kayak.com says that there are many seats available for the flights that I want (I searched on individual flights).
My question: Do you think that more seats will go on sale for the good price on Europebyair.com? Should I wait & see? Or should I just try to book something?
What is your best advice?
