As a flight attendant I have not had to buy an airline ticket in YEARS! I am now on leave and can only get myself to Europe, not Russia. I need to be in Sochi Feb. 26th as I am volunteering during the Paralympic Games. I am struggling with finding an "affordable" airline ticket. I am a poor college student these days.
If I book directly w/Lufthansa, the ticket is over $700. Many websites offer much less ($550) but I'm reading such horror stories w/all of them (Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz, et al.) Can anyone offer me any advice?
Ideally, I need to find a ticket for less than $600. My dates are Feb. 26 - March 20 (I could return a day earlier if necessary to save money.) I don't mind a long layover in Moscow as I would like to see Red Square. I mean, who knows when I'd have another chance, right? Any help or ideas would be most welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
