Last year I found out round trip much cheaper than a one way.(half the cost)
So I booked another cruise going the other way and used both tickets.
Went home from cruise via Heathrow last May and returned end of August for another cruise home.
Also discovered something else. If I book through American Airlines, I can select a British Air flight that is two hundred dollars cheaper than booking direct through BA.BA has direct flights from San Diego to Heathrow, instead of me having to fly American and change planes in Dallas. I checked current prices a couple of months ago.
I already checked and right now I can fly BA to Heathrow and a change to go to Barcelona (we are on the previous cruise so Barcelona is our destination.Don't know what the prices will be, too early to book.
Last time we flew home from Venice , we flew Lufthansa(partnering with United airlines). Wonderful service on board.
When I book flights, I look for routing as well as price. Don't want to fly all over the place with lots of changes.
