One way flights from Europe
I am considering using a large chunk of United miles for Polaris Business from IAH to AMS next June 2018 for my family. This plan will drain my United miles. I am interested in flying one way back in economy but the prices seem close to the price of a round trip in economy (based upon May prices)
Icelandair, one way fare for AMS-KEF-IAD, June 2018 is $383.36 – just checked.
Other option is WOW airline, but their schedule is not open yet. Both connect through Reykjavik (Iceland). In my opinion, Icelandair is better, because you get free luggage allowance (one 23 kg luggage), free on board food. I had a friend travel that route and he was impressed. Almost no chance of missing your connection in KEF.
Another option is to book a round-trip, if you can plan that far in advance. Basically, the second leg of the round-trip (the return flight back to Europe), could be used as a starting point for your next trip or vacation. If you’re not sure where you want to go, you could consider just booking something AMS – IAH – London. London is such a good starting point for European destinations because of all the airlines that fly there (low-cost and full service).
