Questions about airfares in May

We are trying to plan ahead and will be visiting Barcelona in May of 2014. Unfortunately airlines such as Vueling and Easyjet don't allow to book that far ahead or even to see what the airfares would be. Right now we plan on flying into Paris spend 5 days there, then onto Barcelona for 5 days and then Athens for 5 days.

If anyone can help with an approximation of what airfares might be lowest to (worst case) highest that would be appreciated. Paris to Barcelona

Barcelona to Athens

For the Paris to Barcelona journey, should we even consider going by train?

Lastly, does this seem to ambitious a plan?

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for all your responses. Just a couple of questions based on all of your suggestions:

1. Since we will be getting our tickets months in advance (at presumably the best rate) is there any chance lower fares could become available a few months later, so for example if we check back and see the fare has gone down do any of the airlines make an adjustment.

2. How reliable are the schedules. In other words, if we book a flight now for May 2014 how likely will it be that the airline wont change the departure time or even cancel a flight?

3. I suppose if they did, they would let us know in advance but just wondering if this happens with Easyjet or any of the low cost carriers.

Thanks again for all your replies and advice.
