Thanks, Stephen. We appreciate your letting us know about good prices.

I think I read on WOW's website that in late May they're going to start flying out of Dallas-Ft. Worth. That might work for us - another time.

I agree, Jazz. I looked at the possibility of flying from the east coast in April (where I'll be stopping over on the way to Europe anyway) but can't find any reasonable one-way flights from Newark or Baltimore - to Paris. $279.99 seems to be the cheapest I can find and that includes a stop-over. I'm sure there are additional fees (e.g. checking a bag) on top of that. The Alaska award I've already booked gives me a direct flight from Philly to Paris and including a free stop-over in Philly is only 40,000 miles for the full round-trip and about $110 in fees. And it's pretty easy to get Alaska miles...

I met a young woman in Cahersiveen recently who was surprising her parents on the Ring of Kerry, as she got a WOW ticket on two days notice for less than $200 round trip!!!

I've tried it twice, but both times when I added baggage (which I need going to the usa for 2 weeks at a time) and the meal (I want it) and other add ons, it was about the same price as British Air! Call me silly, but that unlimited complimentary wine tips me (not pun intended) towards British Air!

But lots of friends fly Norwegian and Wow and love them both....
