I am trying to book a multi city itinarary for early october
Washington DC -San Fransisco-Las vegas-Los Angels-Washington DC.
1 Should I visit Las Vegas ,San Fransico -Los Angels in any particular order ?Can part of journey be better booked by train /road ? All suggestions are most welcome.Any suggestion about low cost airlines would be particularly welcome since I am on tight budget.
2 While fly.com is able to give me such itinerary on Virgin America and American Airlines as well,I am not able to book them through the website of respective airlines.AA has no tab for multicity booking.Virgin has a tab but only two flights can be booked at a time.Any suggestions on how to do it .
3 United website has a feature by which a mulicity itinerary for payment of $8.99 will be held for a week at current prices ,without payment . I could not find such feature on other airline website.Do such features exist on other airlines/How to avail the same ?.My itinerary could be certain within a week or so and I wanted to take advantage of present week Sale before prices go up again,( presently available for about $500)
