[10/09/2014 @ 12:07 PM] Price has dropped to $728. Sending notification.
[10/27/2014 @ 1:54 AM] Price has gone back to fluctuating around $800, +/- $100.
Update: This route is perpetually priced low if you view it from a pure CPM basis. Therefore, I’m going to quit updating the exact prices and just leave it on the deal list indefinitely. This route is almost always in the range of $880 – $770, and it has a free stopover in either Amsterdam or Paris depending on if you fly the inbound or outbound segment on KLM or Air France. If Delta / KLM or Air France don’t have it on sale within that price range, then United will probably have it or British Airways will have it. The British Airways route allows a free stopover in London.
I will not be sending out any notifications unless this route prices under $750.
Delta and KLM have cheap flights from Houston (IAH) to Mumbai, India (BOM “Bombay”) for $797. Airfare is round-trip and has a short layover in Amsterdam (AMS). New Delhi (DEL) is also available from Houston (IAH) for about $50 more.
The fare rules allow a free stopover in Amsterdam (airport tax not included). What this will allow you to do, is spend several days (or weeks) in Amsterdam before catching your connecting flight to Bombay or New Delhi. I’m sure this will be appealing to those who like multi-city itineraries.
Consider booking this as a Flight + Hotel package to save even more money.
