Flights info please

by bevanne

I was wondering if anyone can help me. I want to fly from London UK into New York JFK and out of Boston Logan International. Any help appreciated.

Re: Flights info please

You can find carriers for your routes/dates here:

www.skyscanner.net

I'm not sure if it is possible to get an 'open-jaw' ticket flying into one airport and back from another. You might have to buy two separate one-way tickets.

Re: Flights info please

I believe it's possible to get an 'open-jaw' also on skyscanner also with different airlines as skyscanner will send you to opodo or similar site...
sometime also to airline's sites.
anyway once you've seen who does same route, nothing more easier to go to airline's site and book the ticket.
Long story to tell but a direct flight might cost more then an other one with stop[s].

Re: Flights info please

by nhoolb

Agree with Mr. cgf here. An open jaw is almost always possible, even with the cheapest (A)PEX fares/tickets as long as it's with one airline or even within one Alliance.

As said: go to those web-ticket websites, compare fares and then

>>> go to airline's site and book the ticket. <<< (quoting Mr. cgf)

Often it will also save you also the 15 or 25 (or more) EUR/GBP/USD extra as booking fee that those web-ticket websites charge.

Those web-ticket websites may be useful when booking more complex routings, such as with several airlines that may or may not be within one alliance-and multiple stops en-route-that (some) airlines' websites don't accomodate.

Re: Flights info please

by leics

Entirely agree about web-ticket websites.

Whilst skyscanner is excellent for finding carriers for routes I always book tickets through the airline's own website.

I know one VT member who recently had a most unfortunate experience booking tickets through a consolidator (>right word?). I'd far rather book with the airline concerned.

Forget about Skyscanner. That site is great for Europe, but what you need is KAYAK here in USA. Just click on "Multicity" and follow the form. In to one city and out the other. Done it myself. Most all airlines have that. This past April I knew a friend who booked into Orlando Florida, and returned from Houston, Texas via British Airways. Was looked up on Kayak and then booked with British. This was from London.

We flew Heathrow to NYC and back from Phila. a year ago. We had no trouble getting that sort of ticket, and I'm sure it would be the same from Logan. Just give BA a call. I'm not sure how the American airlines like United, American or Delta work.

Travel Tips for Boston

Free WiFi Internet in Boston

by MikeySoft

The city of Boston finally has free Wi Fi Internet hotspots. One is in Quincy Market, Another is at Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, near Long Wharf.

Network Name (SSID) GalaxyFreeWifi

Quincy Market is a big tourist spot in Boston and is on all the maps. Now you can connect to VirtualTourist and email friends about your travels to Boston while shopping or eating in Quincy Market.

NewburyOpen.net also provides free wireless (WiFi) in Boston along Newbury street at the locations on this map.

Please rate this and my other tips when you find them interesting, useful, or like the photos. Thanks Updated November 2007:

I was using my computer last night in Quincy Market. The SSID was now something like BostonWireless.

Also I was downloading mp3 files. After a several files, a screen came up which said my download limit as exceeded my limit. This was from the Quincy Market wi-fi, not the web site I was on. I was unable to use the internet after that that.

When the weather is bad ...

by Myndo

... there are still a lot of things to do in Boston.
The Museum of Science (on a island on Charles River) is very interesting and for the little and big children (yes, me too) interesting.

The New England Aquarium at Central Wharf is worth a visit, too.

Go shopping or having a small bite in one of the many restaurants.

More museums: Computer museum, Children Museum, Boston Tea Party ship

Go to a real Irish bar, not...

by DaveD

Go to a real Irish bar, not one of the tourist traps. Just follow your nose to Southie and you will run into a few. Also, go to a Red Sox game, if you are there in the Summer. People are in your face and tell it like it is, but are generally nice, once you get to know them.

avoid the tourist traps. OK,...

by Brenna

avoid the tourist traps. OK, do them once, but don't spend your time hangin' in Fanuil Hall the entire time, or planning your day around the John Hancock building. In my opinion, boring! Do the artsy stuff - go to stores you won't be able to find anywhare else. My favorite - PLUTO in Davis squrae. You should go to Bertuccis or better tyet any Italian resturant in the North End. By all means, DO NOT go to places like the Gap. Why even bother leaving your home town? GO to the Deli Haus after midnight at Kenmore Square. Ramming aorund the Children's museum when I was little, going back stage at the New England Aquarium (where I now work), riding the subway and not having to think about driving anywhere, skating in the Commons.

Tallest Building in NE who's view you can't see!

by garridogal

Prior to 9/11, this would've been a Must See tip. However, since you can no longer see the view from the tallest building in New England, why bother? It's a shame and kind of silly for the observatory to be closed. The one at The Prudential is still open as is the one on the Empire State Building in NYC. So this makes no sense. However, you can still gawk at it from the street and by all means take a walk by it on a really windy day. You won't soon forget that! I remember the observatory. It was great!
