Traveling Paris to Washington DC - Help With Best Options

We will be flying home, two of us, May 24, Paris to DC (any of the 3 airports will do). Connections right now are not the best for an affordable flight, but Iceland Air has a short layover for $712 to Dulles. Before it sold out, we could have flown Iceland Air Paris to JFK for $500 and then picked up a $75 flight home.

I checked into flying to Dublin and then to DC, but it was much more expensive, as was the train to London and then flying home.

Have I overlooked some obvious alternatives?

I appreciate any help; thank you.

You can fly from Bergen in Norway to JFK for US$303.10 each with Norwegian. Flights to Bergen from Orly the day before are US$108.10 each. Add another US$200 for hotel (plus travel to/from town if you want that) and you've got a trip from Orly to JFK for around US$500 each.

Norwegian also flies to JFK from Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm, but not on the 24th.

Alternatively you can fly from Orly to Fort Lauderdale (via Oslo) where JetBlue and USAir can take you to Washington National (Ronald Reagan) and United seems to have a seasonal route to Dulles (don't know if that one is operational in May). Prices start at US$367.40 @ www.norwegian.com

Note that Norwegian is a LCC so they charge extra for luggage, credit card payment, seat reservation (you can still select seats for free at the airport during check-in), food, drinks, blankets etc.
