I'd like to search for flights departing either Fri PM or Sat AM, and returning either Sun PM or Mon AM.

In Google Flights, this requires 4 separate searches. Is there another site/tool that allows such a search?

  • I'm not sure what you mean by "another site/tool that allows such a search". All airlines offer search options where you can input your desired departure and return dates. – Michael Apr 23 '17 at 23:32

    @MichaelC. My desired departure date is "between 6pm Friday and 12pm Saturday", and my desired return date is "between 6pm Sunday and 9am Monday". Google Flights does support flexible departure/return dates, and does support specific departure/return times, but these times apply to all days (for example, Friday or Saturday, between 2pm and 5pm). – gberger Apr 23 '17 at 23:38

    @SheikPaul I know, Google Flights also allows for this. But can you simultaneously search for "depart Fri PM or Sat AM" + "return Sun PM or Sat AM"? – gberger Apr 23 '17 at 23:52

    @choster Does't seem to be a duplicate of that question. This question appears to be "I want to travel on a specific weekend but I don't really mind what time"; the other is "I want to travel at specific times but I don't really mind what weekend." – David Richerby May 23 '17 at 10:15

On Matrix Airfare Search you have the option of searching for flexible dates. In my case I was able to search for flights from LHR to FRA leaving Friday and/or day before and coming back Monday on this day only - but you can change that to be the day before/after. You can also specify what time of day (early morning, midday, etc.)

EDIT: OP is looking for a combination of different times frames on different dates. Just click on the "Time bars" after your search and you can see a visual of the different dates and times. enter image description here

  • thanks, but I still wasn't able to perform my desired search. I tried "depart Sat AM or the day before", and the search results included flights departing Sat AM or Fri AM. imgur.com/a/LQq11 – gberger Apr 24 '17 at 0:03
  • @gberger That's what it's supposed to do. You asked for Saturday AM and the day before (i.e. Friday AM). You can add in more times to get a wider range of time frames. – Michael Apr 24 '17 at 0:04

    right, but I can't configure it to search for Sat AM or Fri PM. – gberger Apr 24 '17 at 0:06
  • I edited again, please see revised answer. I really can't teach you how to use the tool, but if this doesn't help, then you might be better off calling a travel agent... – Michael Apr 24 '17 at 0:09
