Airfare from U.S.

#1
I'm trying to figure out the specifics of purchasing my ticket to do the Camino.

The carriers I am investigating have a "one month maximum" on their flight specials, which doesn't fit into my forty day itinerary. I might also extend my trip based on how I'm feeling to venutre into other areas.

I imagine some here have had experience juggling their return date or using an open ended ticket?

One of the best possibilities I have found is to take Aer Lingus from JFK to Dublin and Ryanair from there to Biaritz and then the train to SJPdP. Ryanair has a Dublin flight from Madrid for the return. It looks like there is no problem with a 30 day minimum for either airline.

Hi there,

I looked at the British Airways page (selecting USA as my home country) and I was able to look-up a round trip with BA from NY to Madrid with a 5 week stay in Madrid. It did not seem to have a problem with the 1 month issue that you mention.

Price was not too bad either... for example 1.Feb 2007 returning 8th of March (random dates that I choose), $305 + taxes ($277 (!)) = $582,-

Might be worth a look... :)

Un saludo,
Ivar

If you can afford it (and I'm leaning this way as well), book a fully refundable Y class ticket. That way, if you have to change your return date, you get your $ back, with the possibility of getting bumped up to business class.
