Great deal to Germany from NYC area

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If anyone, especially NYC-area Bears, is looking for a cheap trip to ski Europe, I just read about this deal.

How about a dirt-cheap flight into Munich to use scenic Barvaria as a jumping off point to the Alps? US Airways has a $215 + tax fare (comes out to $306 total roundtrip) to Munich. Kicker is that it's only good from Islip airport on Long Island. (ISP). Available on Travelocity and also on usairways.com. Good only Mon -Thurs, needs a Saturday stay, and available Jan 18 - March 30.

Even though the flight connects thru Philadelphia, it's more expensive to leave from Philadelphia itself, as also it is from any of the main NYC area airports. But $306 and a ride on the LIRR out to Islip isn't a bad deal.

I was able to price out a ticket up to the point of being ready to buy on the next click, so it still seems available. Not quite as good as the $215 including tax deal to Switzerland I bagged a couple of months ago but still pretty cheap.

Go to usairways.com and do a search by price from ISP to MUC to check this out.

$215 including tax to CH? That must have been a computer error.

The $215 to Zurich was definitely a mistake. Anyone who bought their ticket and called up asking if it was valid was told it was not. However, if you did not say anything, they had to honor the ticket.

Anyone planning on flying with usairways to munich just wanted to say I've frequented this route alot, and from all of the U.S. carriers US Airways is the best as regards to service. NEVER FLY WITH DELTA

Now that that's done, just wanted to say if anyone is planning to fly to munich to ski in the alps, plan trips to salzburg or Innsbruck, there the nearest, cheapest and best. Salzburg you have to hook up with a torist bus which goes out to the resorts
In Innsbruck your in the middle of the biggest ski resort in the world.
All of these suggestions are for people who are of course not planning to stay in one resort.
Stay away from Ski Amade, you can only use a small part of this ski resort without a car.
The big resorts out west are pretty much outside of any budget except the biggest.
If anyone's planning to come out to Salzburg this winter send me a message.
Bye bye

I cannot confirm this statement. My experience flying *through* PHI with skis checked last season: Skis arriving with my flight: one (1) time out of four (4). Now how does that work for a ski trip when there's only one flight in a day...
Other indication on US airways luggage trouble: Guess who's got the most luggage lined up for delivery at my local airport (ORF)? US Airways.
Also, equal to all other airlines, their automated system is useless. I've never found that records where updated on the whereabouts of my bags.
