Has anyone had any experience using the Name Your Price on Priceline for overseas flights?

The info I read says priceline flights may make up to one connection each way. I am taking that literally - but am afraid they may have two or three stops, which will not be acceptable for the travelers. Did you have any issues with bidding for overseas flights that would make you not want to use this process again? Will they adjusts the dates based on the cost - i.e. weekends versus week day costs? If they meet your bid price is it etched in stone and are you obligated at that point? Thanks for your insight on this.

I used Priceline only because, at that time, there was only one airline that Priceline was using on the route I was bidding on (LAX - SYD) and I knew that this airline only had non-stop flights on this route. Like you, I am unwilling to make multiple stops when I fly, so I have never used Priceline since that time, although I do keep reading about it--just in case I change my mind.

I would recommend doing a lot of research before bidding on Priceline because once your bid is accepted, you are STUCK. Perhaps the following link to an article on Flyer Talk will give you some useful information. Good luck.
