New York Times' Travel "Deals & Discounts" for Sunday 10-27-02:
Through midnight tomorrow, British Airways has round-trip fares between Kennedy or Newark Liberty and London for $248, good for travel through March 31. And once the fare is booked, passengers can change their travel dates without penalty. By reserving at www.britishairways.com/fallsale, an extra $10 is taken off the fare. In conjunction with this fare, there are hotel rooms at nine London hotels starting at $32 a night a person, based on double occupancy. From Washington or Baltimore, the fare is $298; from Chicago, $328. And from New York, the round-trip fare to Paris is $320, Zurich and Geneva, $372. Other European cities are available. Fares are good for travel Monday through Wednesday, and higher fares apply Dec. 18 to 23. Other restrictions and fees apply.
The silentlambs March on the UK WT Branch Office is set for Saturday, March 29, 2003. To make use of the above deal, one would have to depart London on Monday, March 31. Yet, you could arrive anytime Monday through Wednesday prior to the silentlambs March, March 24-25-26.
The only "problem" with the above NY Times' deal is the DEADLINE! Must book by Monday night at midnight... i.e., tomorrow night at midnight, 10/28/02.
