Easter in the US ex Germany

I am desparately looking for decent fares to NYC/BOS/IAD to spend Easter on the East Coast (NYC/BOS + Washington) from April 11-25. All good fares end april 10 or are seasonal (eg QLAB1MUS) black outs. Should I wait for LH do dump unsold seats in late March? Anyone got any leads?

Thanx in advance
Oliver

Do you want to fly to all three of those destinations? I presume you want to go to any of those.

Where are you travelling from in Germany? Do you have any alternatives?

FRA-BOS - €464 (LH)
FRA-NYC - €464 (LH)
FRA-IAD - €491 (LH)

Not exactly cheap, but not that bad either...I honestly would wait until the last minute offers come up and fly with LTU´R. Since you have three possible destinations the chances that your route is available are very good. By the way, if you call LTUR directly they have more availability. Boston for instance is normally around €356 including tax.

In my experience the Easter holidays in German schools set the end of the "cheap" airfares. As these begin on April 12th this year it is clear why the sales end on April 10th.

You usually won't find any "sale" fares for that time (e.g. WEFLYLH or similar), so QK-fares will probably be your best bet. However you are pretty late booking this trip, so it MAY be that there is no availability in Q-class any more (or at least currently). In fact for my flights on April 12th to SFO only H class has availabilty, and even that is very limited (I booked these flights in Augustr last year). So maybe that's the reason why you did not get any good price...

Greetings - Dirk
