Before I moved to Cornelius from Panama City, Florida, a round trip ticket was close to $400. I just bought a round trip ticket to Barcelona for $439 from Charlotte. Sure is nice living in a city with a descent airport.

Top that?

Decent price. Charlotte (CLT) is still one of the most expensive airports in the country though. Our options for direct flights are nice because of US Airways but the price has always been high.

Not so much Charlotte as its the current market. When the market favors the airlines, Charlotte prices are really expensive. Right now just happens to be a great time to travel.

Charlotte was one of the most expensive in the country a year or so ago. We are actually down to around 12 now. But we are the nineth busiest airport which helps I suppose. I have never actually flown overseas from Charlotte before. I usually fly out of NYC, Orlando, Atlanta, Boston or Newark because they are usually quite a bit cheaper. I was really please with the price to Barcelona though. And as you say Gumbo, pretty cheap to NYC and cities with Jet Blue.

It all depends on when you look. I checked depart CLT 5.14.09 and return 5.20.09 using Kayak, airfare, expedia, and priceline. US almost exclusively the cheapest.

Leave this Tues and stay a week, Continental was $785,,,US $1065, DL was $2025..................

$449 RT to BCN is and awesome price! Enjoy BCN, one of my favorite European cities!!!

I have 2 trips to book for......L.A. in June (US Airways - $417) & Vegas in September (US Airways - $428) - really not sure why these flights have become so expensive....I paid less last year during the peak in gas prices.

Are they using them to subsidize your trip to Barcelona?
