    Hi All,

    I booked the trip referenced in the title for $360.30 a/i.

    2/18: JFK-YUL-AMS
    2/19: AMS-WAW-AMS
    2/20: AMS-YYZ-JFK

    3.7 cpm is not too bad...for me at least!

    :)

    Through DL - I've been able to get similar bookings through YYZ and/or YUL for about $371 since I booked this earlier.

    What are your dates on this one? I played around on DL and could not get it that low.

    Anyone found a similar deal departing YYZ rather than JFK.
    I searched, and found some out of JFK through YYZ, on AF, but I want to depart YYZ.
    Thanks for the post!

    It looks like it's only connecting through Canadian airports, not originating...

    Booked $481.6 (went up $1.60 since I first priced it!) out of msp, Nov3-7. Through YUL and AMS yielded the lowest taxes.
    From that other forum, I believe cliburn's dates are the same as mine.

    I have a return YYZ-JFK late Nov it was the 10:25am flight seems DL CXed it and rebooked me on a 1:40pm flight, I was hoping to get a YYZ-BOS-JFK routing, I called the site I purchased it from (not DL) and they called DL and I was offered a 5:28pm flight the day I arrive @ YYZ = not having to blow 18 hrs in YYZ. I said is 1h 13m a legal connection, came back and asked if I wanted to go CDG-JFK straight, said that will work, turns out DL rebooked me on the A-380 :)

    so if anyone booked that 10:25am YYZ-JFK flight you too should beable to get out of having to overnight @ YYZ as well

    sorry Yes I start from JFK, it was alittle cheaper with KL and via AMS but AF planes offered me more pitch and width to tehseat so I thought the extra $25 was worth it to go with AF. Got a refund of $32 for the YYZ taxes I was charged, since I wont be arriving into or departing from YYZ any longer. So total is $350 a few less miles now but Im :) as I dont have to waste 18 hrs in YYZ

    I got in on this. LAX-YVR-AMS-WAW. My first flight is on Alaska Airlines. Are they going to charge me for the check in luggage? I booked the ticket on Delta Gold Skymiles American Express. Does it mean that I can check in two free luggages with Delta? Does it matter that I booked this on Big O?
    If you need help to book this trip on delta.com, just send a PM and I will be happy to help you...

    Nope - you can check luggages for free.

    That's what I thought too, that I can check two baggages for free. :)

    Nati,

    Welcome to MP!

    You can check one bag for free as a DL SM Gold Amex holder...you'd have to be a Medallion member to check two bags for free.

    First Bag Free for AMEX Holders

    While technically true, that's not the rule in effect here. Alaska Airlines allows for the baggage policy of the connecting airline on an international trip. Since the OP will be going international and they originate on AS connecting to DL, AS will abide by the DL international baggage limits.

    DL's rules for US->Europe:
    1st Bag Free
    2nd Bag is $75 at the airport ($60 online)

    The DL Gold Amex card is moot here as the first bag is already free thanks to the international flight.

    Any tips on booking this deal? Me and a friend are interested in multi-city stops anywhere in Europe for cheap. This MR certainly qualifies for us but we're only seeing $700 and upwards via ITA software. I can see $370+ on D dot com but it's showing an error & can't get past the purchase page. Thanks :)

    I believe that booking on Exp. still works.
