And its by way of Atlanta? Ooops, sorry, that'd be the 10 hour flight at $3000 and would include passing through customs twice each way.....

Your ticket sounds similar to one I looked up for fun between Providence, RI, and Hartford CT (about 1.5 - 2 hour's drive apart). Some ticket prices make no sense. Meanwhile, I can go roundtrip to Seattle (FYI for those overseas, that's on the other side of the continent) for $307.

Houston to Toronto round trip cost me 400 bucks 7 years ago. It was a 3 hour flight (would take well over 24 hours to drive it). However, to get a one-way flight, it would've cost me over 1000. How's that for logic?

I can fly from London to NYC for 300.

Yet last week I had to be in London for a meeting - flying time 35 minutes each way - and the best deal I could get was 370!

As they say in the classics "Go figure"

I was told this weekend that I'm not "allowed" to make the drive on my own..(hubby and daddy lectured me) Looking into other options....flying WILL NOT be one of them!!!

So, should we be reading something about your driving into this?

How about hitch-hiking? Seriously, the train's not a bad way to go.

You think the cost for air travel is expensive, just check out travel on a train in Canada... brutal.

That makes complete sense ... if you look closely the fighit is from Sudbury to Ottawa via ... Vancouver, Hong Kong, Khandahar, Casablanca, Belfast, Halifax then Ottawa. I don't know what all the whining is about ... think of all the interesting people you will meet. By the way when in Belfast snap a picture of Vikki for the collection.
