I wanted to buy a ticked US-Europe for end of November and the prices are just outrageous. I am guessing they are double of what's normal for this time of the year. This is the off-season, so the high prices are not due to too many travelers. The cheap dollar and/or high oil to blame I guess. It should not be a surprise to anybody. But it is amazing to realize how useless USD actually is once you get out of US. I hope I am not talking out of my arse here. Maybe I have forgotten what the tickets used to cost.
