    While I think this is a good 'service' I'm not sure I'd want to be posting my holiday plans for all to read. How paranoid is that?

    You'll note that I haven't. No need since my next holiday is free as alitalia paid for in compensation for changing my last flight (to a better one).

    Do you mean 14x16 year olds?
    If you do then most airlines regard them as adults, and for that number of tickets you'll obvuiously need to call them. May negotiate a discount!

    Best prices I've found per adult..

    Birmingham- Chicago £497.30(Brussels Airlines)

    London heathrow - Chicago £ 359.70( US Airways)

    :)
     
  16. thanks for that EG, I will wait until I book any flights. You seem to know a lot about flights, when is the best time to book them for Aug 08?
     
  17. I don't really know about them I just sit searching for them!
    I don't know how long you should leave it for the summer, you risk losing the flights of course.

    looked for a variety of stuff!

    For Greece looks like you only go to Rhodes and Zante direct from Edinburgh. You would have to make sure you're in the right resort for Rhodes!

    Found a selection....

    Rhodes
    23rd Jul-6th aug £240 each
    9th-23rd July £295 each
    16th-30th July £260 each

    Zakynthos
    10th-24th July £310 each
    24-7 aug £250 each

    and with a stop

    Edin-Athens ( via amsterdam)
    16th-30th
    or
    23rd-6th
    £245 each

    Hope that gives some inspiration!
    :)
