My girlfriend and I are in the process of booking a trip to Europe for July of 2009. We will be flying in to Stockholm from New York and will be seeing (in no particular order) Stockholm, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Switzerland, and Florence.
The price of the flight to Stockholm has dropped dramatically over the last week or so. However, in about the same time span, the one-way flights from country to country have either sky-rocketed in price or have disappeared all together. We had been using Orbitz and similar sites.
Why have the prices risen so dramatically in such a short period of time? There were many options for direct flights from country to country about 2 weeks ago and now those options are severly limited. Will the prices and availability come back down to normal soon?
Of course taking trains or driving is an option, but I would appreciate it if for this post I can have help with flying. Thank you in advance! Happy travels. Chris
