Summer Flights - Good Price?

Travel Forums Europe Summer Flights - Good Price?

I'm searching for a ticket from (around) the 16th of July to 6 of January and found one to Zurich for 1043 with Swiss Airlines on cheaptickets.com. I'm flying from Portland, Oregon.
Considering the rising price of airline tickets and that I'm flying out in peak season I think this is a pretty good deal. I was wondering if anyone had seen anything better/had any tips.... or should I jump on this price?

Thanks for input.

Considering you're going for more than 30 days, I'd say this to be an excellent price. You do realize that Swiss does not fly out of PDX? who are you codesharing with?

It's with United to Chicago and then with Swiss to Zurich. I was told that flights become cheaper for extended periods...? Is this false?

Oh no, these price is gone and up to 1,200 something...
Has anyone found any good summer deals? I know all about faircompare.com but they're saying something about $800 per way and I know I can do better than this...

The cheapest way to get to Europe would be from either NY or Florida to the UK (London or Manchester will probably be the cheapest). I know Oregon is on completely the other side of the USA but if you could get to one of them places cheaply somehow you will save money getting to Europe (I'm not sure about any cheap airlines in the USA). You could then get a cheap flight from Manchester or London to Zurich using one of the budget airlines here (Easyjet fly direct to Zurich, Ryanair fly to places close by). NY or Florida to UK about $600 return, UK to Zurich about $150 return.
