Cheaper Flights to Poland

Looking for advice on cheaper flights to Poland.

This past July I flew LOT directly from Chicago to Krakow at a price of around $1200. It was my first European trip and I used a travel agent for booking.

I'd like to return to Poland in September of 2007 - I think the prices are a bit cheaper at that time. I'd also like to book the flight(s) myself so I'd appreciate suggestions on ways to minimize the flight cost even more...what other European cities could I fly to and get a connector flight into Poland.

Thanks much in advance!

Yes, the airline tickets in September are a little cheaper than June-August, but not that much. If you're in Chicago I think you won't be able to get a whole lot better price; I would suggest regular sites like priceline.com or orbitz.com and take a flight to one of the European cities (eg. Munch or Kopenhagen) and from there connect to Poland -- these sites allow you to do it "automatically" if you select you want 1-2 stops.

I know that many Poles in Chicago buy tickets from Chicago to Poland via Polamer (I think it's polamertravel.com).

lots of really low cost airlines flying to Poland from the UK and flights from the states are pretty cheap to the UK too

Skyscanner is the site as mentioned. Here you will find every bargain available.
Anyone wanted good quality guest house accomodation with an English breakfast let me know. Fireside:)

I always fly into Frankfurt. I also get the best deals using Lufthansa, but you have to book early and it's usually cheap off season. I'm flying there fir the new year and it's costing me $720

Are you using a MAC ? Or a non standard browser. Skyscanner does have problems if you step away from Explorer.
I am sure that Skyscanner does inlcude scans of Lufthansa but concentrates on Europe I believe.
Berlin is always cheap to fly to

Continental flies Newark to Cologne, Germany for a good rate. A short train ride to Dortman will get you an Easyjet flight to Krakow. It may not be the most convenient but may be the cheapest way to get there.

I use esky.pl for some of my bookings.

I did a search on a random dates, a week apart, and got this:

Wylot
(Chicago, Illinois, United States of America - Warszawa, Poland / 18 Wrzesień, 2007)

Powrót
(Warszawa, Poland - Chicago, Illinois, United States of America / 25 Wrzesień, 2007)

Connect at Milan Malpensa (MXP)

2,481.00 PLN = 904.997 USD = 438.872 GBP

Just to let everyone know. Ryan Air are currently offering 50% many of their flights.
This means I can go to Lodz and back for £17.38 (inc tax) ! !

Hope that helps. Happy flying.

If the city of your destination is in Western in Poland then you may want to consider flights to Berlin, and then a train from there to one of Polish cities. It's faster (and cheaper) tan flying to Warsaw.

Airmiles flights for BA. Got zillions of the things. Only problem now is the taxes add up to more than the total cost of the budget boys. Only consolation is that I can sit up the front of the plane. Good idea for this one being sticky Frank
