So I’ve got another crazy trip coming up! If you’ve known me for any amount of time, you would not find this shocking. The surprising part is that I’m actually spending a whole 6 days in Stockholm! The crazy part is just they way I get there. I never spend that much time in one place, so it should be fun! I’m going to visit a friend who just bought a house there (although I really don’t need a reason to visit) and I managed to get a fantastic deal on airfare!
It’s a bit convoluted…My routing is as follows:
- YVR-SEA-SFO on Alaska
- SFO-AMS-ARN on KLM
- ARN-IST on Atlas Global
- IST-CDG on Air France
- CDG-SEA-SFO on Delta
- SFO-SEA-YVR on Alaska
I bought the SFO-ARN//IST-SFO as part of the crazy business class sale to Europe a few months ago… just over $1k for the whole thing! Usually about the price of a good ole regular economy ticket 😮 The two Alaska flights between YVR and SFO are separate, but I think it worked out to just under $200 for those, and I’ve already been upgraded on the way back because I’m an elite! And then I just recently finished it off by buying the ARN-IST leg on Atlas Global for a low low $55 😮 I’m excited to try out a new airline. They are a discount airline from Turkey, but offer free bags, seating, and food! The only downside is that I’ll be spending the night in the Ataturk Airport… but thankfully in the lounge!
I know this itinerary seems crazy to a lot of people, but I really like to fly, especially in Business Class, and can’t pass up crazy good deals, especially on airfare! And of course, only bringing a carry-on… should be easy on a trip this short 🙂
