Me and the eldest are off next month to the Metallica gig at Madison Square Garden to celebrate his 16th birthday so it is time to book some flights.
First attempt: Opodo (http://www.opodo.co.uk) – 586 pounds each!
Second attempt: Lastminute (http://www.lastminute.com) same flight and a 7 quid saving. Wow!
OK time to look at indirect flights. Opodo is the winner this time as the same combination was not offered on Lastminute. KLM 1 : Air France and Delta 0.
Yes I know the flight time is longer and there is more hastle but I’ve saved 420 pounds and the lad will be back home in time for school Tuesday!
Interesting to note that the tax is actually higher than the fare. Who gets 139 quid and who pockets the remaining 230? No wonder the airlines are not making the same profits these days.
