Hi, we are taking a family trip to see relatives in Finland, and are looking at basically $1000 per person to fly Icelandair, which has been lowest fare we can find for July. Does anyone have any suggestions on other places to look? We used to regularly use http://www.airlineco… but it’s been sold (the site looks like it’s still up but it’s become an aggregator for other sites)

$1000 is not bad for this in summer. How flexible are you — earliest you could possibly depart, latest date you could possibly return, and how long do you need to be in Finland covering what dates (i.e. a wedding or family reunion you can’t miss)?

Give me some dates to work with and I’ll see if I can point you to something better than $1000.

Also, could you go from BWI, DCA, IAD only…or further? What if RIC, Harrisburg, or PHL were significantly cheaper — would that be possible, or would they have to be much cheaper? If so, by how much? Just trying to cover all bases for you.

Thanks for your help Don- I just went back to Icelandair website and grabbed the tickets at $990, so it was about $3600 for 1 adult and three kids. I’ll be on a separate itinerary so I’ll stay in touch if I need further assistance. Take care, -Bill

(For next trip)… I know some consolidators that sell Icelandair for less. Happy travels.

Hi,

I would be interested to know where you get Icelandair for less…

Best regards,

Hi Don,
I’m about to book my own itinerary for Finland, so I would also be interested in checking with the consolidator you referred to.
Thanks,
-Bill
