    Hey, if you’re looking for cheap, fly hubs. Obviously Tx is a hub so fly to the hub in europe of your airlines in tx. then fly a skyeurope or something, once in europe depending on where you are should be less then 60 euros for sure,

    go to http://www.skyscanner.net/ and to the map option to compare prices. Or any other little liner in Europe, i fly from Detroit to Amsterdam, Rotterdam to Poznan, that kind of thing. Maybe direct flights can be cheaper sometimes though to Warsaw or Berlin. If there is a Dallas to Berlin hub flight that is your best bet. Berlin is a hour and half from Poznan by train, but the train leaves at 6am and 1300 so don't show up at 2100 and expect a train you will be standing all night at the train station( i've done it not fun). oh yeah and if you buy your tickets from the machines, please note that in europe dates are day.month.year not month/day/year. Don't expect much help if you don't speak german also.

    Hey,
    The months from June till August are the worst in therms of airfares to Poland and most of the time the round trip will be like 1100 or somewhere along those lines. If you fly in October then it's even 500.
    I usually use Orbitz.com but you can also visit the polish airlines website. From what i know their fares are usually a lot cheeper and most of the time you can even fly directly to your destination which is always nice.Anyways even when you research Orbitz.com very often polish arlines LOT are the cheepest option.
    Here is the link
    www.lot.pl
    Good luck

    Farba is right, LOT sucks ***, it seems that it is always over a thousand. I'm not sure what they are talking about cheapest though. It has never been cheap, i've used LOT every year between 1989 and 1996 or so. And it has always been over a 1200 USD When i mentioned the Hubs, you will be able to get over to europe for about 700USD and then the extra fourty euros or so to poland, on an Airbus not some crap plane. So fly to where ever you find cheapest. I remember i couple years back round trip tickets to holland were under 350 those times are gone. But the cheap liners in europe are everywhere! NWA and KLM are partners so thats why holland is so cheap from detroit. I think it is Dallas-London, and they have direct flights from london-Poznan for 35 pounds! Just to contrast Lot with something else, a flight two years ago from rotterdam to berline cost 9 euros, and after fees, 30 euros where the LOT flight amsterdam to warsaw was 1400 euros; big difference huh. they both were on a same day booking basis. hope that helps.
    AVOID THE BIG AIRLINES AND YOU WILL SAVE IN EUROPE just find a cheap way to the content! and for the international flight /www.air-gorilla.com is also good, orbitz is pretty sweet too though. ITs pricey in july dallas to london- 960USD it seems, it must not be a hub afterall. cheers-

    It's 3 hours by train from Berlin Zoologischer Garten to Poznan Gl. And it is pretty easy to get tickets in Berlin.

    I went to Poland just about a month ago. I used SAS Scandinavian Airlines, they are pretty cheap. I paid $700 round trip from Chicago. Remember that prices went up. I used to be able to fly to Poland for about $500 but this is the past. In my opinion LOT sucks. They are expenssive and the planes are old. Going in June is not a good idea man. First off its the summer season so prices are high, second, there is nobody going to be at the university when you get there.
