Hi eveyone, My name is Alizka, I’ve been around here since the 90’S. I need help finding a cheap flight from Bos to Budapest anywhere after May 21St or later – July 3rd the earliest for around 33 days I need to be there For July3rd for sure…Thank you very much for any help. I forgot how to post here. I’m sorry if I’m doing this wrong. Alizka

I am leaving from Boston with $2700 for 39 days

Hey guys and gals I’m back on here again! Sure missed everyone.. I hope Don is still here! I’m hoping to go to Hungary again in may 2010! Alizka

Well everyone, I never made to Europe in 2010..I ended up in ICU for 2 months In Feb. with spectic infection, I got from a shot I had in my knee to help with pain. When I was able to go home from the hospital rehab, I still needed Critical care for 4 more months with VNA. Then I had to go back in for another few weeks again for more surgery. That time for complete knee replacement and to clean up the bones in my left leg from the infection. I am learning to walk normally all over again! I am using a walker at this time. I am Thanking The Lord that I am still here. I Pray I can go to Hungary, Poland and Slovakia in May of 2011. I hope I am allowed to use my hanicap plaque over there. Good to be home and read all the great info here. Alizka..

You mentioned in the other thread that you already found $1200s — where did you check, so we do not repeat efforts?

A quick check looks like outbounds by May 23 are $200-$250 cheaper than later outbounds. I see British Airways $884 total May 23-July 5, but this is longer than you said.

Thank you again for you help Don. Is Sunday the only cheap day to fly out now? Every other day I put in comes up a much higher price. What days and times should I be looking for sales? It use to be after midnight, Tuesdays. No more. Should I be checking the news papers too? I would like to pay around $750 or less. $850.00 if they allow 2 baggage check in’s. It doesn’t look like it is going to happen. Should I wait to see if the prices will drop? Airfare wars not happening any longer???

Also I would love to use Swiss airline, because they allow 2 bags for check in. But they are very high priced now. Are there any other airlines that allow 2 check in’s?? Thank you again…Alizka

Sales could pop up at any time. Sign up for fare alerts with Bing and Farecompare, but keep in mind that most specials allow 30 days max. stay, and summer “specials” in May, June, or July are not going to be nearly as cheap, or special, as those in low season.

The way fares have been, I really doubt you’ll do better than $885 — assuming that BA deal and those dates I found will work for you.

I do see Dublin $631 outbound by May 31—if you want to look at going on 2 tickets (ie, ticket 2, DUB-BUD).

I’m sorry Don, 1200 was for Swiss airlines. Ba was around 880. But it would cost me close to $140 round trip for 1 extra bag. Paying in the Euro coming back is much higher price.

Are we allowed to just bring back one extra bag coming back from Europe? So I would not have to pay for it going too. I noticed you can not advance pay it online on BA airline, to save money. Anyone who has the answer to this please jump in to help me. Thank you. Alizka

I did a quick search on Kayak and it found $617 on Continental for BOS-DUB using May 27 and July 5 as the dates, bookable through Orbitz or Cheap Tickets. Play around with various date combinations that work for you. Unfortunately you missed some really good summer fares on Swiss that disappeared sometime in January.

I use the links, tips, and strategies listed in our new user thread at the top of cheap flights forum.

Continental.com also available at $616 outbound 31 May-July 5, for example (round trip, taxes included). Still a bit longer than the 33 days you mentioned, but outbounds from June 1 go up at least another $150 currently.

I also found $915, May 31-July 5, to BUD from one of the sources mentioned in our new user thread. I’m seeing Swiss for $1200+, however. If you book your entire itinerary with Swiss, then I just checked and free baggage allowed is indeed 2 × 23kg including the connecting flight(s), but you should check with the airline to get the most up to date info on their baggage policy and fees.

Thank you for your help. I guess Dub is really not good for me. As it would cost to much to go to Budapest from there.. and go back to Dub for my return flight to Bos. But it was a good thought…Alizka

How much will it cost? I thought I saw Malev with flights in the low $200s.

Hi again…

I find a flight through booking buddy on consolidators airline, From Bos to Bud May 23 to July for $803.00 total. Flying on British Airline. I sure hope this was a good deal. I have a 12 hour lay over in London going to Budapest.. I’m worried because my Credit card has not been charged yet!! And Consolidators are closed on the weekends. I do have a conformation. And I checked with BA to see if I do really have a flight. They have my itinerary. I hope I can stay in the airport 11 PM- 10 AM! I can’t afford a hotel. I don’t know if I’ll be able to be put on another flight before the 10 AM flight. Thank you everyone for all the great help. Alizka

803 is a good price for this — congrats! Looks like BA only allow 1 free bag… but still that’s better than all the rest—all considered, eh?

Must be a BA sale. Onetravel found $795 total with BA without the long layover, so of yours doesn’t go through….
