This year is turning out to be a great year for flight deals. There have been flights from the US to Asia for under $700 for weeks, low fares at the height off summer to Europe, thanks to new low-cost carriers Wow and Norwegian Air, and great sales across Europe on AirBerlin. And that seems to continue, so I hope you find a good deal for your vacation as well. And if you have trouble booking, just contact me and I’ll be happy to help!
