Dec 2017 London, Prague, Copenhagen

December 24-Jan 5, 2018

San Jose SJC – London LHR/London Southend SEN – Prague PRG – Copenhagen CPH – Toronto YYZ – San Francisco SFO

13 day trip flying British Airways SJC to London LHR, FlyBe London Southend SEN to Prague, Czech Airlines to Copenhagen CPH and Air Canada to SFO.

Airline tickets:

$557 American Airlines Stockholm – San Jose SJC June 23-Dec 24, 2017

$527 United Airlines Copenhagen – San Francisco Jan 5 – June 2018.

These two tickets originating in Europe allowed me to fly home last June after flying to Barcelona on a $150 one way on low cost start-up LEVEL Airlines and return to Europe for Christmas. Our Stockholm San Jose ticket has an overnight layover each way. We used the outbound overnight at LHR to book Radisson Blu Edwardian London Heathrow for $113 and earn a second Free Friday night (redeemed at Radisson Blu Prague ($250 value). On the inbound flight we stayed in London rather than flying to Stockholm.

The ticket back to San Francisco in January 2018 allows us to return to Copenhagen in June 2018. My hope is to find another ticket back to California in summer 2018 with return flights for New Year’s in Europe.

FlyBe London Southend SEN – Prague PRG $70 one way.

Czech Airlines Prague PRG – Copenhagen $53 one way.

London 3 nights, Prague 7 nights, Copenhagen 1 night.
