OK I know this is a reoccuring theme, but anyone know a good site for getting cheap air fares back to the UK ? Looking to go early December for 10 days or so.

I heard a BA advertisement on the radio the other day -- they have special offers to New York and other big cities in the U.S. right now.

I'm looking for a cheap cheap flight for my girlfriend to come and visit me in Sweden next year (June). Any city in Denmark or Sweden or even London would be fine.. as long as it's cheap. I've heard about people flying for around $500 before but that seems impossible to find now.

Are there any low fare firms flying U.S. - Europe? Student discounts?

I am going back to the UK for Christmas and I got a super fare of $350 including tax on BA from NYC.

Tips:


www.qixo.com

www.sidestep.com

www.autoeurope.com (car rental agencies but have been know to have super cheap flights to Europe too! I once got $270 from NYC to LON)

www.travelaxe.com

Plus always check the airline websites. My flight on BA was actually booked on www.aa.com - strange huh! I'll take the bargains anyway I can find them!

Let me know if you find a bargain!!

$47.50 extra each way to leave from and return to Atlanta is a great deal.

BA has deals on again now. Back in November we booked flights to go from Tampa direct to Gatwick for two weeks this past May. Price? Less than $400 per person return, including all taxes.

I searched and searched for deals out of ATl...where/when did you find that? The best I could find was $129.

So what kind of deals can you find coming the other way? My daughter lives in the UK and she's coming home for Christmas. And I know I'll end up paying for her ticket. What kind of deals can I find the other way, does anyone know?
