Re: Going Home

I don't know how this can be the case. I suppose I've flown home 100 times and it's always been cheaper to go from Buffalo and cheapest to go Buffalo-Hub-EuroHub-London. Of course, sometimes that's...

Re: Going Home

Since I glanced at that $300 fare, I'm now seeing ads for $200, even $150, though the $150 probably goes between two tiny airports only vaguely near the places wanted.

A greater criticism of the...

Re: Going Home

Flights from Canada are, I accept, massively expensive. However, $300 for four hours in the air doesn't seem massively expensive to me. Yes, there are knock down fares in Europe but they're a...

Re: Going Home

Well, you may live in the middle of nowhere but most people in Canada live along the border and, of those, most are to the east so they can use Detroit or Buffalo. For most people in Canada there's...

Re: Going Home

If you live in Canada then you get used to flying from US airports whether you're going to the US or elsewhere; it's rarely a reasonable option to fly from Canada. I don't see that as a problem, if...

Re: Going Home

It is not as cheap as Ryanair but, for example, there are lots of return flights from Buffalo to Florida for less than $300. It is a discount airline offering flights at prices most people can afford.

Re: Going Home

It's always cheaper to pay the whole fare from Buffalo than it is to take a "free" AC ticket from Toronto. And, if you drive to Buffalo, you don't have to fly on AC.

Re: Going Home

It's all about career advancement, you do it because it leads to more money.

The advantages are that you see lots of places (you can make them all look the same by seeing only...

Re: Going Home

Yes. I gave the AC points to my ex but kept the Amex points (accrued by charging hotels/tickets/conference facilities to my card and expensing the statements). Amex points bought our garden fence...

Re: Going Home
