Aegean Air Bait & Switch: Any Recs?


It’s travel day! I’m going to Moscow in just a few hours. Before I takeoff, I am trying to book my flight from Cyprus to Amman. I searched it on ITA Matrix and found it for $130. Then I went to Aegean to book and of course the price has gone up to $200 per person. United requires 25k which is ridiculous and BA requires 4500 Avios + $100 so that’s not worth it.

I don’t have the time to look up all the Star Alliance Partners so I’m asking anyone if they have any tips. Otherwise I’ll just pay and be angry, a TPOL normal state of mind.

Air Berlin? Now it’s 138 euros here and 200 euros on Aegean. Criminals 



  1. RJ has had good pricing in the past. I’ve flown them from Amman to Cyprus. If you can use Iberia for an avoid redemption the YQ should be less.

  2. For whatever reason I’ve found Priceline to be the most consistent with ITA. I don’t know why that is, but it almost always seems to be the same.
