Default British Airways

If anybody is shopping around for tickets, British Airways is having a "sale" right now. Find the cheapest flight you can from BA, and then try booking it through statravel.com, and if you get the student rate it may be even cheaper (that's how I got mine earlier this year).

Examples from the email BritishAirways.com sent me:

JFK to London - $179
Los Angeles to London - $239
D.C. to Amsterdam - $242
Boston to Zurich - $248
Miami to Madrid - $305
Denver to Berlin - $308
Seattle to Paris - $308
Chicago to Rome - $315
San Francisco to Cairo - $604
Houston to Lagos - $612

God I paid more than most of those to go from Columbus to Las Vegas. That kind of makes me sick.

^ When I copy-and-pasted from my email it left the prices as links. So you may not be able to see them if you have different browser settings or something... that's my best guess.

New York JFK to London $179
Los Angeles to London $239
Washington DC to Amsterdam $242
Boston to Zurich $248
Miami to Madrid $305
Denver to Berlin $308
Seattle to Paris $308
Chicago to Rome $315
San Francisco to Cairo $604
Houston to Lagos $612

Thanks for that, but actually I forgot it would be no good for me, as they're all flights from America!! Not that I have any time/money to go flying anywhere anyway! I was just curious..!
