Yep Garben- he just announced in the S/G when he would be away... glad I live "in the sticks"... nobody bothers me and my neighbors and everybody knows to watch over everybody's houses... and, of course, we're armed up to at least 500 yards away....

Al Sever: "Nobody--post your email and I'll forward you my confirmation email from American Airlines."

Well. I'm wrong! Congratulations Al on one heck of a fantastic deal. I'm sure you'll have a great time. Lucky guy!

Just for kicks I priced round trip tp Philly and back. On that day it was $267... I'm flying to San Diego in a couple weeks for about the same price... got my ticket early though....

Nobody--post your email and I'll forward you my confirmation email from American Airlines. Same flight is $1,490.00 today. These deals do come up but usually for State College or Wilkes Barre---this is first time I got a deal out of WMPT. BTW --went to Peru for $270 three years ago and for $340 2 years ago, but not out of Wmpt.

"Thanks to whoever is responsible for our local airport finally setting some decent prices for tickets." - Al Sever

You're welcome. No, it wasn't me personally, but as a tireless advocate for the free market which gave you that price, I am glad to see it appreciated.

Have a nice trip.

Good for you, Al. That was a good find. Sometimes it is cheap, other times, not. It is all about timing and supply and demand. Enjoy your trip!

We are looking to go to Paris. So far flying out of Williamsport has been very high. Much, much higher than anywhere else. But we will keep looking. One time on a trip to New Zealand, to our surprise , it was only 80 dollars more to fly out of Williamsport for the two of us.

Al Sever: "Hard to believe my good luck $517 for a roundtrip ticket from Williamsport to Madrid."

Not to be cynical, but I don't believe it. I believe you, but there must be a mistake.
