Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

Hi! I'll be going to Europe in August (23rd exactly) and I'm looking for a cheap Paris - Dusseldorf ticket. Can anyone recommend me something? becouse I know nothing about.

The only one I heard anout was Air Berlin but doesn't suits me well becouse I have to wait like 10hs at the airport since I arrive.

Thanks!

Re: Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

yes, the only one I found was Air Berlin, so I will have to wait 10hs at the airport.

Air Berlin costs 48E and I won't have to pay travel from the airport to the train station, that costs like 10E.

Re: Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

Paris-Dusseldorf is not a popular plane route, so most low-cost airlines don't cover it.

Re: Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

Did you try Easyjet?

We live and breathe Easyjet. We got a ticket, the equivalent of US$23 from Basel to Budapest!!!! (One way)

Re: Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

I think the best option is going by plane. You should buy a book, take your mp3 and food (if not in the end you'll spend more than if you went to the train station) and find some confortable chairs to rest.
Are you going only to Germany?

Re: Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

thanks everybody!

the only cheap airline that makes that route is Air Berlin so I already bought the ticket to them.

I'm going mostly to Germany becouse there lives my aunt, who is paying my tickets. I'll be going to Wuppertal (her town), Dusseldorf, Dortmund, Essen, Munich, Luxembourg and Paris for sure.

Re: Help : Looking for Cheap Airline Tickets

Oopsie, I was going to suggest www.mobissimo.com (search there at least 2 times a day), but it looks like you got it figured out already.

Does Germanwings still exist or did that airline fail?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Still on the web, but the site (in English) looks to get you to only two destinations in Germany, neither of which is Dusseldorf.
