Question paris in the springtime, part deaux

ooh la la

beacoup savings MSP-CDG right now, found on my yahoo's fare tracker

292+ lufthansa
304+ icelandic
334+ AA and icelandic

not quite sure how to get the 292+ as when I try, it shows me "...Lufthansa does not provide service between Minneapolis/St Paul, MN and Paris, France
on the selected date..."

trying the 304+ on icelandic I also get "...Icelandair does not provide service between Minneapolis/St Paul, MN and Paris, France on the selected date..."

trying the 334 on AA, I can go out but can't find a return flight.

well anyway, good fares out there, perhaps they work better from other cities

yahoo fare tracker is sort of cool, except that it sucks in a bunch of ways - this being one example, and not showing the prices for places where you CERTAINLY can "get there from here"

Lufthansa adds a nasty amount of taxes and fees (including a fuel surcharge), so they are not very attractive for MRs. Fares for Paris in the Springtime were much more attractive a few weeks ago, and most of them were on NW ($314+ from HNL, $364 from PDX, etc.)

NW was $243 just a couple of weeks ago, now it is $410 from BNA.

(Forgive me, as someone who is sufficiently fluent in that language after years of schooling to say only things like "combien des francs...," or "voulez-vous couchez avec moi c'est soir" [the Poynter Sisters], I couldn't resist it.)

Also:
"combien de francs" not "combien des francs"
and
"... ce soir" not "... c'est soir"

"part deaux " is the Homer Simpson pronunciation. D'oh!
