Re: Cheap Flight To California, Usa by eddy1977(m): 9:16pm On Dec 17, 2009
@ suxes boy
the advices from johnkent seem nice but i would be very cautious to travel to the usa using anything arabic like emirates airlines or even going thru morocco , for the simple fact that since sep 11th, the us immigration service gets very nervous with u if any arabic stain is attached to you.
my advice would be to try to stick western as much as u can; delta airlines or anything western europeen is very advisable for first timers to the usa,

compare also prices for nigeria to new york or philadelphia or new jersey then a flight from those cities to california.
or even from naija to the uk then from there to california. i dont know if ghana airways still comes over

i wish u good succes in your trip and studies.

website

its called having faith grin by the way suxes2005 you should have booked yah flight like one month ago, cos it would have been cheaper then
i will advice you not to buy a ticket from someone, it is advisable to check the websites of different airline travelling from nigerian and find out their prices, and just book online if u want or go to their respective offices, thats what i do
Re: Cheap Flight To California, Usa by dinggle: 12:48pm On Dec 18, 2009
I flew from Detroit(michigan) to Lagos 2nd december with Lufthansa airlines for $775 (oneway). Bought the ticket with
www.asaptickets.com

However you must have an international credit card which must carry same names with your travel documents via which charges can be billed. Otherwise your request will be denied. I'm preparing to go back early January and I'm gonnna fly same means.
There is a catch tho!, because the tickets are so cheap they arent transferable if you dont fly on the day you are booked to fly, there is no reconfirmation opportunity (only a doctor's report can open room 4 consideration). That was the reason I opted for a oneway!
Also whatever transit route you are offered check to with the embassy of the country to know if need a transit visa or not, they arent responsible for that and they dont give advisory all ticket purchased wit them are final.

Alternatively you can bid for an air ticket going your route with skyauction.com, I have friends who have flown with $550 return ticket from U.S, however you need atleast two months ahead for you to have a successful bid. I bet ASAPTICKETS will still be your best bet. No travel agent or airline can beat their offer!!!

They are cheap but when u call them, the prices are much higher from wat u see on the website because of added taxes. I called them today for a ticket. it was a few dollars cheaper than other travel websites thou.

U need a credit or debit card thats in ur name.
Re: Cheap Flight To California, Usa by dinggle: 1:39pm On Dec 19, 2009
@oyewolejos
The tickets are e-tickets! so it will be sent to ur email address. Paper tickets are more expensive and they will charge u a shipping fee for that!

@Johnkent the tickets will add a few dollars more if there is competition for the date u're billed to travel, which mean they have to hussle for the seat for you!! If your travel times are flexible u will get the best from ASAPTICKETS.

@suxes2005
Credit / debit card must carry the same name as your travel documents and it must be an internationally chargeable credit/debit card!!!,

Pls take note and check your transit point to ensure you are able to secure a transit visa where necessary before purchasing.
For those travelling to USA and Canada via frankfurt (Germany) no transit visa is require in frankfurt if having a green card, valid visa or if returning back to naija after using up ur visa.

Your tickets are electronic; an e-ticket is a paperless method of ticketing flights; therefore, no tickets will be mailed to you. You can print your travel itinerary or Electronic Ticket Receipt at http://www.viewtrip.com/ using your PNR. Kindly retain your itinerary for check-in, passport control and possible claims.

For reservation changes kindly contact our client services department at (800) 750-2238. If fare rules allow refunds and/or exchanges, $ 200.00 ITN fee will be charged to process any refund and/or exchange request. This fee will be collected in addition to the penalties charged directly by the airline and/or recalled by the airline from ITN.

Reservations for tickets to be refunded and/or exchanged must be canceled at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure. NO SHOW ticket(s) will not be processed for refund and/or exchange. ALL NO SHOW TICKETS ARE IMMEDIATELY SUSPENDED BY THE AIRLINES AND HAVE NO VALUE. ITN has no power to reinstate tickets that have been suspended by the airline.

ITN agents will not cancel any reservation without a written cancellation request from a customer. Cancellation of reservation does not automatically initiate refund. All exchanges and refunds can be processed only prior to scheduled departure. If you wish to exchange or refund your ticket after the scheduled departure you must obtain a written confirmation from the client services department. This confirmation may be obtained only prior to the scheduled departure. Client services department will email the confirmation on request provided the fare rules allow exchanges or refunds after the scheduled departure. If you are unable to travel we strongly recommend that you contact our client services department well in advance in order to determine whether the fare allows exchanges or refunds after scheduled departure. Please keep in mind that our regular business hours are Monday through Friday 8 am to 6 pm PST. We reserve the right to receive at least 48 hour advance notice for any exchange requests.


We would like to advise you that at this time the flight departure and arrival times are correct. However, airlines frequently change times and/or flight numbers. We are not responsible for schedule changes. Please contact the airline to verify current flight information 72 hours prior to your scheduled departure. Baggage allowances and fees associated with the checked baggage vary widely; please contact the airline for specific limits and fees. Check in time recommended for all international flights is a minimum of 3 hours, even if you are traveling on a domestic carrier to another airport and connecting to your international flight.

Travel documents required for all tickets (paper, e-tickets, or paperless) include a valid Passport, which must be presented for all international flights. Some countries may require a Visa and/or health card. It is the passenger's responsibility to make sure you have all necessary travel documents in your possession at check-in. Please verify the visa requirements for all your stops as some of the countries may require a transit visa. Those passengers transiting via the airports within the European Union - Schengen Zone may need a Schengen Entry visa. Traveling on a one way ticket may be restricted. If you are traveling on a one way ticket, it is your responsibility to make sure you are eligible. ITN agents do not advise passengers on visa requirements. Please contact the embassy of the country you are going to visit or transit through to get the up-to-date requirements.

If you have a credit/debit card go to the website and purchase ur ticket by calling the associated number. If you dont have a credit /debit card look somewhere else e.g emirate, or qatar airways.

Re: Cheap Flight To California, Usa by platinumnk(f): 6:02pm On Dec 21, 2009
Suxes- what ever you do dont buy a ticket from a person


buy from a reputable website, it is better to pay more money so that u can arrive safely than to pay people for a "cheap flight" you will never see.

Let those who have ears let them hear. wink

DO NOT BUY A TICKET FROM NIGERIA THAT WONT GET U TO LOS ANGELES, CA. Alot of u guys that havent been to states always make the mistake of getting a flight to NY and then think a flight from NY to LA would be $150, not so.
NY to california is more than 6hrs flight if u get a direct flight and it would cost u up to $1000 if you think about getting a connecting flight thesame day u arrive in NY.
Again, some people have bought the ticket to NY and then were able to find someone in the states that has a US credit card to purchase a ticket to california for them. But some have missed their connecting flights because their flight from Nigeria arrived late or had a hard time getting hold of their luggage and they couldnt make the next flight.
Pay attention to this:If for some reason you missed your flight to california, YOU might be asked to pay the price of same day ticket to get you to LA from NY. This is so because the ticket you bought for the connection is  from a totally different airline and that airlines doesnt care as to why you missed your flight but if you bought a ticket from Nigeria that gets you all the way to LA, the airline will always put u on the next flight to LA from NY if you missed your connecting flight because of late arrival or baggage problems.

Also know that you'll have to pay for your bags if you bought a separate ticket from NY to get u to LA.

All am trying to say is BUY A TICKET THAT GETS YOU ALL THE WAY TO LA AND NOT NY. YOU DONT WANT TO BE STUCK IN NY.
