Late wife and I flew to UK ten years ago and it was more expensive then than now. Sweet deals if you've got the green. Via Kayak:

Fine print: "Fares do not include applicable taxes, fees and airport charges up to $260"

Round trip is more like $900, which unfortunately is the norm these days.

I remember in 1997 when Lux Air ran a special... roughly $180 round trip to NYC.

I was able to get it down to $756 Bos -> Barcelona, but not a fire sale.

I'm wondering if you can skip the last leg of the trip and just get off in Munich, but depart from Barcelona. ("open jaws" the travel agents used to call it)

Man, what a bummer! I figured there'd be a little cut for Uncle Sam and col, but that much is crazy.

My only trip overseas was in 1996 when Virgin Atlantic offered $99 flights between NYC and London. As soon as I saw the advertisement in the newspaper, I called a travel agent and booked a four-day trip for Mrs. Poochie and me (remember newspapers and travel agents?).

Alas, it was my only trip to Europe and probably will be for a long time.

I went from Houston to Amsterdam in 1998 or 1999 (can't remember - ha!) for ~$750 - including 7 nights hotel.

That did not include coffee shop or Banana Bar expenses.

I went form Little Rock to Paris and back in 1991 for $300. It was during Gulf War I.
