Cheap(ish) flights to Europe

Each December, SAS Airlines offers special deals on flights to Europe. There are loads of restrictions, and the price seems to get worse and worse each year, but it still prolly the best deal around. Their schtick is everyday, the deal is on for only one city. If you miss your city of choice, you miss the deal. Basically, it is $199 each way from Seattle (or $175 from D.C., NYC, or Chicago) with some taxes tacked on. Generally, the restrictions are that you have to travel in the cold months (Jan - March, I think), and you can only stay 30 days or so.

Jeff and Amanda used the deal to go to Madrid in 2002 and Lara and I mimicked their trip in 2003. Each year, it has been a fun diversion for me to check what city they are offering. I thought I might share. As compensation, if anyone takes the deal, I expect a postcard.

So the link is: (or click here for the non-flash site.)

Oh, and thanks to Saxtor for doing the legwork on this one. Yet again he rises to the call of the Interchallenge.

I just tried this and a flight from SEA -> Copenhagen came out to $472 with taxes, etc. Not bad at all (except that I am not looking to go to Copenhagen, esp. at this time of the year. As far as travel goes, I'm happy where I am.)

let me know how the trains move? or should I say what moves them, are they gas powered or coal or hand pumping them or what?It looks like a very efficient way to use the rails.:)

if anyone gets to europe and wants to move around a bit, you can get ridiculously good deals on and flights can be as low as 10 euros, everything included.
