Looking for some expert advice on multi-city flights from the UK to the US.
We plan to fly from Bristol (UK) to Boston (US) and then fly back approx 2 weeks later from Philadelphia with either a multi-city or an open-jaw ticket in May 2014. The plan also includes flying between BOS and PHL (or getting Amtrak). Would it be best to get the internal US flight on the original booking or book it separately? I’ve searched on many different websites and the combinations are endless, but none are perfect. Ideally, we’d prefer only one stopover if possible. The alternative is to fly back from NYC as flights from there tend to be quicker (and we could get Amtrak there). I hope that makes sense.
Anyway, if anyone could possibly suggest the best option, and whether to get a multi-city flight or open jaw plus separate internal flight (or train), we'd appreciate it. Also, any advice on which would be the best airlines would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
