So, wouldn’t you know, I wake up this morning to the annuoncement of a good deal on NW/KLM from YVR-BUH (Vancouver to Bucharest, Romania, for those not versed in airline speak). Usually I dismiss these out of hand, since I’m nowhere near YVR, but this morning I figured I’d check it out.
Turns out it’s a relatively unrestricted, normally expensive, upgradeable coach fare.
Turns out it’s also available from Toronto.
All the way through the schedule.
With stopovers permitted both ways, pretty much anywhere in Europe you want.
For ~ $250 roundtrip, including taxes.
With all that being true, what else could I do? I booked a week split between Vienna, Austria, and Bucharest, Romania, the week of Memorial Day next year.
Now I just have to wait for the tickets to arrive.
