Airlines Slash Fares to Fill Seats


The current economic situation can be depressing, but it doesn’t have to be because there’s always a silver lining.

This week’s silver lining appears to be airfare. I recently Twittered about Lufthansa’s early bird specials to Europe. I found round trip tickets from New York to Milan during mid May for $545. Even better, this morning’s news reads, “Airlines Slash Fares to Fill Seats.” One key sentence in the article caught my eye; “Some round-trip tickets between New York City and Amsterdam, Madrid or Frankfurt have fallen below $400 on Continental Airlines. “

This is good news for travelers, but I’m always skeptical of these promotions, so I did a bit of searching myself. To my delight, I found round-trip tickets from New York to Milan between May 15 and May 30 starting at $413. Once again, if you can steal way for our self-guided Italian Lakes District Tour, then this is the time to do it.

What if Europe is still out of your budget? Well, I searched for round-trip airline tickets to our Red Rock Country hiking tour running May 4-12, and I found that a person from New York could join us for just $293 in airfare. Likewise, a person could escape the rain and grey of Seattle, WA and join us in the sun-soaked Desert Southwest for a mere $246.

Imagine ditching the snowboots for sandals and joining us for white water rafting, hiking, and exploration in the American Southwest. How about relaxing on sun-drenched patios, and then sipping wine while admiring the sunset on a warm spring night? Just because the economy is down doesn’t mean that our spirits have to be. If you’ve been fortunate enough to squirrel something away for a vacation, then this might be the perfect year travel. We can always find a silver lining.
