I'm trying to figure the cost to pay for a friend to go with me on a cruise to Europe and then Fly her back. I'm shocked at the difference in price. If I want to fly from here in Austin to Frankfurt, I can find flights around $628 counting taxes and fees. But if I reverse that on the same date. The Price jumps up to over $2000 and $3000?!! I've tried searching on all kinds of sites and most all of them are American sites, I can't even find European travel sites to see if they pose a different price. Surely everyone in Europe isn't paying such high costs to fly to America? What am I doing wrong?
