    Just looked up the flight on Expedia. $10,000+ coach! Just an added consideration for those interested.

    On Orbitz I'm seeing $5500 out of Gillette WY. Seems like a lot.... Should be a little cheaper out of a bigger city. The hunt deal is great. Wish I could do it. Bruce

    Tells me you better dump expedia for your travel searches. :)

    $2592 Tax in.

    Multiple Airlines
    YYC 18:15BZV 11:40 (+2)2 stops 34h 25m
    BZV 12:40YYC 11:17 (+1)4 stops 29h 37m


    Look at the hours of travel to get there. Maybe you got a direct flight. :)
    Makes the Joburg flight look like a cake walk.

    Oh how I wish this deal would come up in a few years from now! This is definitely one of my must do hunts.

    Someone is going to be extremely lucky...

    Nope, that was coach through London 22hr layover then Frankfurt 40hr layover! Just checked again, Departing Edmonton Oct 17 returning From Brazzaville Oct 31 $10,297. Changed the dates now there are several starting at $3216. This is exactly why I use a travel agent when actually booking a flight!

    The price is right for the Bongo.

    I'm already breaking the bank with my Leopard and various PG in Aug.

    But wait, Wednesday is lottery day, just maybe if I buy a ticket.
