I thought this was awesome and wanted to share. I found airfare in October for $560 RT from Seattle including a seat assignment and 1 checked bag. I purchased through KLM but 3 of the 4 segments are on Delta.

Four segments? What is the total travel time with any layovers?

There are different routes but I selected Seattle-Atlanta-Madrid going
and Madrid-Amsterdam-Seattle return

I flew Dallas to Atlanta to Madrid on Delta September 2017 with return November and it cost $550 round trip and I thought that was great.

Also, check Norwegian Air, a low cost carrier, which I am flying from Boston to Paris to start, and then flying home from Madrid.

My thought after years of flying is that most airlines cancel flights when they think they can save a buck, leaving passengers in the lurch. Is Norwegian’s reputation for cancellations know to be worse than others? BTW: you got a good price on your ticket to Madrid!

I think that is a good price - of course I have no experience to base my info on :) I will be flying Delta in June RT from DFW-Atlanta-Madrid for $580. This was the cheapest I saw and probably could have waited longer for a better deal to come along but I found it stressful to wait so I went ahead and purchased it.

Buen Camino!

For those of us who live a long way from Europe, the flight can be the largest part of the cost of walking a camino route. I have just discovered an issue that can significantly affect when one can book a flight and so how much it will cost. If you want to volunteer somewhere on the pilgrim route and have not yet heard from the organizer as to a date and location, you may not be able to book until late and at a significant cost premium. This is not to discourage volunteering. You just need to consider this as a possible additional cost. I can't book on the KLM sale announced yesterday. And I have no idea when I shall be able to book.

I often follow the Hopper site and find great fares. Just purchased round trip LAX ti Madrid leaving 9/30 returning late October for $385. Its on Iberia and American ... return trip is nonstop. I can’t choose a seat ( that doesn’t bother me) and I get 1 carryon... my pack. Super happy!!
