We have to babysit a home in Provence for three weeks during the first weeks of April ( I know, this is going to be a tough job, but someone has to do it...) and I was wondering when the Spring airfare sales are going to start? We really want to get the best price, and I usually need "Economy Comfort" type legroom. I have auto notices set up on a few sites, but they don't cover all of the possible routes, so I need to do my own monitoring.
We will fly from PDX (Portland Ore) to Paris (or Marceilles?), and are looking for the best "one stop" option. We have flown Delta from Portland to Amsterdam, and then on to other locations in the EU, but I was wondering who else has good one stop options to Paris, from this area. Icelandic Air would be good choice also, but they don't start flying out of PDX until May. We don't like flying across the US to grab a plane on the East Coast; we prefer to be in the air for the shortest amount of time, and don't want to do an "overnighter" anywhere on our transits.
Currently, R/T prices on "good" flights are around $1400 P/P. Last May we got Economy Comfort seating on Air Canada for $1400, but it was two stops. I was hoping for a better price, and one stop.
