I need to get a flight Prague(PRG) -> Paris(CDG) and Paris(CDG) -> Budapest(BUD), in June. The Air France web system offers me an unbelievable price EUR 680.

If I try similar thing on the Czech Airlines system with a flight PRG->CDG and Geneve(GVA)->PRG, the price is cca EUR 160, similar to a return ticket PRG->CDG.

It seems that Czech Airlines are willing to consider such a ticket as "return" and offer the cheapest tariffs. However, Czech Airlines obviously won't offer me the flight I need.

Is there a way to convince Air France (or someone else) to offer me such a ticket? I know I can use the low-costs, but they are the last option for me, almost equivalent to taking the circa-20-hour trains.

(I apology if any of the "cheap flights" questions treat precisely the "different return" tickets, I wasn't able to find such information.)

Try a multi-search engine. For example, I've tried to find a multi-stop flight PRG -> CDG -> BUD in June with LastMinute and this is the result:

If you don't want to go in a low-cost, you can flight with Lufthansa + Swiss Airlines for less than 200 euros. Air France, as other companies, don't consider multi-stop flights (in Europe, Air France in USA accepts internal multi-stop flights).

  • having 20k+ SE rep, I know how the system works ;) In the end, I'll do a bit different trip PRG->CDR, GVA->PRG->BUD, BUD->PRG and buy everything from Czech Airlines (for the cheapest fares). However, that website you show is very good!

I know you said you don't like low cost airlines, but Skypicker.com is a European (Czech) low cost air tickets search engine where you can find some of the lowest fares. It may well prove very helpful for the route you wish to take:


For 8th June 2013, Prague to Venice, Venice to Budapest the price would be 119.40 Euros (excluding taxes & fees of 18 Euros)

enter image description here

The trade off of course would be the time taken to reach Budapest >8 hrs.

Other tickets had varying prices, however the duration of travel is far longer, if you made your stopover in Paris (as you mentioned) the duration of travel is doubled & the price is approx. 170 Euros:

However the saving compared with paying 680 Euros that you quoted in your question I think makes up greatly for the time taken to travel, if you were to choose Venice as your stopover (in my honest opinion).
