Hello, I am thinking of booking our flights from Wash. DC to Paris and then home from London for a vacation this June-July. The choices have come down to Air France or United. The prices are basically equivalent and each involves a direct, nonstop on one leg and a connecting flight on the other. Is there a substantive difference between the airlines for these routes? (I've read mixed reviews for each on this board, but not necessariy for these routes.)
The current fares are around $1,540 each r/t, which I view as crazily high (they were $1,000 two years ago), but I monitored last summer's and this summer's prices and they seem stuck at $1,500. Does anyone think I should wait? One reason I'm ready to book now is that I don't want certain flights with preferable times to fill up. Many thanks for your input.
