It's official, we're going on our American Adventure! Yeah!
We booked our flights today, and 3 of our hotels.
We will be flying with British Airways to New York and returning from Los Angeles;
2nd September 2005 - LHR / JFK - 1025 / 1300
30th September 2005 - LAX / LHR - 2130 / 1550
The cost of the flights was £470.00 per person
The itinerary has changed though. We thought the cheapest flight to get would be a London - New York return so we planned to fly into New York, travel round then get an internal flight from Los Angeles to Washington and drive up from Washington to New York to catch the flight home. However, the New York return flights turned out to be more expensive than we had hoped so a quick change of itinerary was required.
We will no longer be visiting Washington and will instead use the time on the West coast by adding in a stay in San Diego which will also allow us to make a trip to Tijuana in Mexico.
We've also booked 3 of our hotels;
The Carter Hotel in New York
Curry Village in Yosemite National Park
The Bellagio in Las Vegas
DialAFlight managed to get us a good deal on our New York hotel, 4 nights for £140.00 and The Bellagio was cheaper than we expected. 4 nights for a mere £378.44. Unfortunately it's just a boring "deluxe" room, the suites were just out of our price range! ;o)
