lolz,,, naaah, i bought from BA direct, and i read all the fine print as well, i nearly fell into their trap, when i saw a $300 cheaper ticket...reading the fine print said only carry on bag, you pay for your 2 checked in bags grin grin, and you cannot change the dates nor cancel as well....chhooooiii!!!
veli veli wicked and crafty pipu

Cheap ticket issues. LOL. I only try it within the US not for international flights. Imagine paying for luggage plus excess luggage. Cheap tickets also come with long layovers. Bargain de sweet sha.

I remember someone said something about delayed baggage here sometime ago. Please note that you can be compensated. Once your bag is delayed more than a day. You can shop for essentials ie change of clothes, personal items etc. Basically don't cross 150 Euro. They will refund you everything. Don't forget to keep your receipts.

What was your reason for applying for the visa in the first place?

From my experience, almost all plane will be fill from Europe to U.S and vice vicersa and the price always will almost remain the same except for weather conditions and holiday period, most issue is on the flight from Africa to these European or Middle East hub, filling the plane is tricky which leads to the difference in price, e.g Emirates : Lagos to Washington 14th February to 24th Feb is N332,000 and same route on May 14th to May 24th is N345,000. From these examples we can see that February 14th flight on Emirates is not filling up fast while the May 14th flight is performing normally for that date.
If you're tourist, I believe your decision should not be based on flight alone but hotel, Flight to New York is generally cheap but hotel is expensive, you won't get a standard room for $75 a night in a 3 star hotel in New York, calculating that amount over 10 days is like $800 the only advantage you will get from flying to New York is if you have free accommodation whereas you can get $450 for 10 days in another State.

Which 3 star hotel charges 450 for 10days?

Got to the states yesterday at exactly 2pm Eastern standard time... I flew B.A from Lagos to London and American Airline from London to NC. Thanks seyewest for the ticket you got me at a very good deal. Though we haven't met before but you've proven to be a very honest dude. Your communication technique with your client is topnotch, trying to make sure all is fine grin. So grateful!

POE was cool(though was sent for secondary inspection) the immigration lady was very friendly. She got me cracking up while going through my luggages. There wasn't much asked.

I here say Chicago POE tough these days sad

NC is a very nice state,

Used to live in Charlotte before moving to Florida.

Huge Nigerian community in Charlotte.

There’s always a Good congregation of Nigerians gathered every Sunday to worship at the Redeemed Christian Church of God around South Blvd.

Also a lot of Owambe parties to attend on the weekends.

Don’t forget to head to neighboring South Carolina for an experience in Carowinds.

The Charlotte Whitewater Center is another place to visit.

Downtown Charlotte is always bustling on the weekend & weekdays.

Plus you can always cheer the Charlotte hornets whenever they’re playing.

Both CPCC & UNCC are great institutions for higher learning.

Welcome to the United States & enjoy your stay in the state of North Carolina.

Attend church on Sundays.

I usually attend RCCG when I was in Charlotte.

They usually have information about what parties are going on the weekend.

If you’re really into Black Girls, Bakadi Lounge is a good place to be on the Weekend.

Another club you can score Black chicks on the weekend would be Crystal Night Club.

Unless you are Using some points based system
Or heavily discounted promos I don't think you can get a 3-star hotel for 10 days even in rural America for 450 -600

I will say 750 to 850 for a good deal. But you may be able to get the bedbug motel 6 like places for that amount

What type of hotel? na Econolodge? lol

While classification of nationwide chains or independently owned hotels are purely subjective and based off customer reviews
The likes of Embassy, Radisson, Four Seasons are typically "3 Star" and I would love to see a link that gives you a deal at that price

I am interested.

Anyways baba I get a business trip to make to naija around October 7- 27 make I bless your hustle find me tickets

I don't do long layovers and preference is usually direct flights but would not mind a Paris or Frankfurt stopover no more than 2hrs

Four Seasons 3 star? You're kidding right? Four seasons is definitely a few notches higher up than Embassy suites and Radisson hotels and is consistently internationally recognized as a luxury chain.

These appear to be good deals. Do these prices hold for US origination and are they direct or stopover in Europe? Economy comfort? I will add my patronage if so.

I can't do long layovers. Time is always of the essence. I wish more airlines would join Delta in doing direct flights to/from Nigeria. They have a monopoly on that route and squeeze us for every penny cry
