AUS tweeted this photo a few days ago... BA, VS, and LH. Just missing KL

Amazing that there are now 4 airlines doing TA service from AUS.

I think the housing market is starting to at least stabilize, if not fall slightly. At least out where I live. Closer to downtown I think it will take longer.

I was holding out for a BA fare to drop so I could use the nonstop AUS-LHR for both legs, and eventually it did. Then I double dipped with the AARP and Chase discounts (almost worth it to have both even if you just fly BA once or twice a year). With more competition, fares to Europe are better. It is so nice going straight from and back to AUS.

At least before COVID, fares were significantly less if you started/ended at AUS, even if you connected to the same long-haul flights at DFW. I remember flying AUS-DFW-PEK for like $600 round-trip, and just the DFW-PEK round trip was closer to $1000.

This probably isn't the place for it, and we may have already spoken about this, but where are you? We just put in an offer on a place near where 1st and 1626 intersect.

We can move the conversation to my Austin House Hunt thread if needed.

Oh cool! I rarely visit the TR forum; I'll have to take a look. Looks like you'll be very south, almost in Buda I'm very far north...

I live kind of close to Ikea. Off of FM/RM 1431, about halfway between the I-35 and Parmer. Although there is a back way from our neighborhood to FM 2243, which saves a ton of time if going to Georgetown, or anywhere north.

Still an Austin address though, it backs up to Mary Moore Searight Park I have a buddy from grad school that lived near I-35 and Parmer and now he's near I-35 and Braker in Windsor Hills.

Ya, I've done a few Megabus trips from Dallas Metroplex to AUS for some cheap fares; of course that is over five years ago.

And having flown out of IAH for 15 years I am all too familiar with the hub penalty - or as (IIRC Larry Kelner or his successor at one of the Continental Airlines DOs at IAH) called it, nonstop premium.

So I did AUS-IAH-BOG and DAL-IAH-MNG on CO and somehow managed to forget to get on board of connecting flight after clearing customs / immigration at IAH WN to "originating" airports.

Did you post to Austin Reddit? I see a post there about someone who moved 4 days ago and what they think...

I'm not a Reddit user so that wasn't me.
