I was pretty surprised at the fact that there were almost NO seats unavailable, both ways, when my wife wanted to book a BOS-MSP trip around Thanksgiving.

I'd be surprised if a vaccine were available this year. You have 3 that are just starting Third Stage trials. Even if they pass with flying colors on an expedited review, you still have to...

In January I bought tickets (LAX-AKL) for November. My fear, after speaking to an ANZ rep a few minutes ago, is that they're going to do everything they can to hang on to the money I spent. It's...

Does the NZ government quarantine policy have any impact on Air New Zealand's cancellation/refund policies?

The reason I ask is that, in January, my wife and I took advantage of their New Year's...

I can understand lamenting the loss of LAX-LHR. But with the announcement of EWR-AKL, flying to New Zealand just became more attractive for my wife and I - as we live near MHT, close enough to BOS...

2021 is the big year. That's when Europe happens.

Selfishly, I want to see them start feeder service out of Manchester NH. I live close to that airport but have to go to Boston to fly my...

I was so tempted. If the early BOS-MCO flight hadn't already been sold out, I would have done a day trip to Orlando - night flights back to Boston WERE available for $31 - and I have an Annual Pass...

I'm leaving for Italy next week. I figured that Norwegian would be a shoo-in as a choice since we live near Boston. Well, once we added up the almost-mandatory extras, it turns out that an Aer...

I might be biased, but NYC-DCA(ish) is pretty well served by Amtrak. Getting to DC from Boston? Even the Acela isn't that much of an option. Heck, going anywhere beyond New York from Boston on...

I bought my BOS-FCO tickets last night (September departure). I elected to go with Aer Lingus and change planes in Dublin. For 3 people, I saved about $225 r/t on the cost of the tickets alone. I...

Interesting. We're planning on about 2 weeks touring around Italy and had planned to rent a car (there will be multiple different hotel stays).

So, can someone recommend an agency that will issue...

That's one reason I have my Scottevest 'travel jacket'. 22 pockets (some with access to the entire liner) and I can store anything in it. Since it's my jacket, they can't hit me for luggage fees.

Great report - and your experiences pretty much mirror those that my wife and I have had flying transatlantic with Norwegian over the past few years (BGO-JFK, BOS<->LGW, BOS<->CDG).

The kind-of-obvious choices would be Amsterdam or Paris. I don't know if they would want to go counter to 'conventional wisom' and pick a place like somewhere in Germany.

I think it's hard for a lay-person to figure out Norwegian. I've flown with them a few times since they started their transatlantic services and, in general, I like them.

I mean, I'm on the fence...

Yeah, I'm runDisney as well (taking a 2019 break to do Rock N Roll races) and I don't think it's so much a 'pricing' thing as there just being more people buying seats so the cheaper ones go sooner.

I bid 275 Euros for an upgrade on my BOS-CDG flight that I took on 9/17 and they accepted it. I bid just a couple days before my flight. Their suggested opening bid was 305 Euros.

I'm enough of a fan of B6 that I use their branded card. This 'basic economy' probably won't affect me since I buy my tickets with the card - and that gives me a free checked bag.

VERY strict.

My wife and I went PVD-EDI end of July.

I misread their baggage policy in that it's 10kg COMBINED weight - and they DO weigh your hand bags at checking. I thought I would just...
