Continental fly directly from Newark to Manchester, over night, every day.

If you can take the risk of not getting a seat vs potentially a good price, You may
want to leave booking until late. My guess is that not many US citizens will want to
fly on or around Sept 11th 2002, and you may get some good late deals.

But obviously prices (like planes) may go up as well as down

Our flight dates are Sep 6th and coming back Sep 23rd. We are thinking of getting a ticket from Chs to Man via Atlanta on Delta,but thought we would shop around first. Is it better to get a ticket now or wait a while?

Kuwait Airways are doing a 142GBP return fare from JFK to LHR. The next dearest is
Air India (currently from 209GBP). The big players (BA/Virgin etc) are currently
offering round-trip fares from 235GBP.

Pakistan Airlines do the cheapest (148GBP) return fare from JFK to MAN. BA etc do it
do 235GBP again.

What websites do you use do get the fares on the likes of PIA and Kuwait Airways?
I've used expedia, travelocity etc., but they seem to only feature deals on European
and US airlines on transatlantic routes.

I went to www.der.com found a cheap flight then to my local T/A and told them.
Only a T/A can book a flight for you with them. I ended up with a CO flight Newark
to London.

Oribitz offers a subsidiary called Hotfares or something like that where you lock in
the dates but until you purchase your ticket you are not told what airline you will
travel on. I don't know if you can use it from the UK. They list the airlines they
use, and so although you do not have a choice, you can see what you might get. I
think it is wise to assume the lowest fares would be those of airlines other than
American, United, and the biggies. You have to purchase your ticket within an hour --
and no refunds of any kind.

Wait until September for the shoulder season deals. Sometimes BA will announce good
sales in August for September, but the "free European city" type fares dont normally
get announced until September 1. September is the low season, so methinks you will
not have problems if flying between gateway cities (LON, ATL, NYC).

I agree with the comments below. The school holidays are from late July to early
September and the price of all travel, hotels etc rocket during this period I would
check for dares towards the end of Sept. for a deal.
