Travel Decisions


They reserved us (not yet booked) flights for the 9th on Dutch Airways...The only problem is that it will cost a total of $2600 more (which brings us up over $7000 for tickets alone) than the flights we have now. It would only be a 5 day stay. The other choice is keeping our flights now, staying a week longer, and then trying to get flights back. The Ethiopian Airlines rep said they are really full until September and that August is a really bad time. She checked the 14th, 15th, and 16th and they are all full.

$2600 more is a hard pill to swallow!


  1. If it makes you feel any better-- we traveled last Aug. and the only thing available was Luthansa Air for $6500 for two adults and a baby lap ticket!!! OUCH!!!! but, anything to bring our kids home, right?? :)

    Enjoy the trip!!

  2. Hmm, I had no idea the tickets were so expensive. Was there only two of you traveling there and then 3 back?

    Boy is my heart heavy. We wanted to bring our 9 year old with us...now I am thinking -HOW.
