As many of you know, we house exchange most summers to go to Europe. During this time of communication with our exchange family we help each other out with logistical things for our upcoming summer trips.
This is the third time we've discussed flights in detail with an exchange family trying to help them strategize about finding inexpensive flights for a family. In the few times we've checked their route and rate, we've been surprised at the fare they've been able to get. I don't think we'll need to "help" them find a reasonably priced flight in the future.
Just today our German family told us they booked round trip tickets from Zurich non stop to LAX. When we look up that route, we see a price for them of $1193 pp. If we try to book the reverse route, LAX to Zurich round trip, non stop the price for us $1844. This is checking ITAsoftware.com
Last year our London family appreciated knowing about Norwegian Air but the German and Swiss families seem to be able to get good summer fares. Any insight into this?
