How'dy folks, I really need a big big big favor from you,
I'm looking for flights to London from Las Vegas-NV for April 19th and
coming back on the 24th. The cheapest thing I've found out there is
from Continental at USD $588.83 but that's kinda sour, do you guys
have any suggestions? I've already tried all the major ones:
Orbitz, travelocity, studentuniverse, etc. and I can't find anything for less
than U$544, I'm actually wanting something in the low 400's, does anybody
have a clue, please help, this is for a conference in London and I have to
reserve the seat at the conference ASAP. Thanks!!!

That price is actually pretty good from the western US for late April. I searched on Mobissimo and came up with $598. I really don't think you're going to find a ticket in the low 400's, especially since the off-peak travel season officially ends (for airline prices) on March 31. That's not a very long trip though! ??

*edited to add: you might want to get that ticket NOW, because I can guarantee that the prices are only going to start going up!! Good luck!

Unfortunately, that's about right.. I believe that's a codeshare flight w/ Virgin Atlantic, and that's the usual going rate. You can get it for about $100 less if you leave by Mar 13, but I'm assuming that's out of the question...

Thank you guys!! I have this comference in London on April 21-22 and I wanted to go a little bit earlier and leave a couple of days later so I at least get to see London, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to go, I wish the prices were lower, damn I saw that promotion from Virgin Atlantics, but if you add all the stuff it still expensive to leave from the West Coast, NOT FAIR!!!! Anyway, I appreciate all your help!!
