Into and Out Of Europe in 2012

OK, so it was time for our second trip to Europe since I had accumulated 80,000 American Airlines points for 2 almost free round trip tickets (I still have to pay about $150 in taxes).

Last time back in 2008 we were able to fly open jaw flying into London from Chicago and then flying out of Zurich to Chicago via New York.

This time our options with the 80,000 points had us flying into a out of London so we planned our trip around that.

The coming in part at 9:00 am on a Friday morning was a bit of a headache, but the early morning 7:45 am departure on a Tuesday was a breeze.

Pros and Cons
