Headin' on out to Bozeman, Montana to visit a school friend on the week of July 4th. So far I have found the cheapest tickets to be $606 on NWA but they leave at 6:15 at LGA. That means leaving my house at 3. Not gonna happen. My dad says he has a lot of FF miles so he will look into it.

A friend of mine flew HPN-MSP-BIL on Northwest a few years ago (the HPN-MSP sector was on an Avro! I was jealous!) and the fare and flight times were pretty reasonable. Try HPN instead of LGA since you're near there (and of course replace BIL with BZN) and you might find something good...you're going to have to connect somewhere no matter what.

Dude your going away July 4th week, no way will you get a low fare that week. Even using miles will be tough as most of the reward seats are long gone. You might want to check Frontier, you'd have to make two connections but might be cheaper then NW. I'm traveling that week and the fares were very high. Very nice part of the country and worth the trip.

Go with nwafan's idea, sounds like the most reasonable.

You picked your own seats.....? What does that mean, is there something special about that? NWA allows you to select your own seats during ticketing.

This would be my first time on NWA so I didn't know that was something you could do.

I think NWA is the only legacy carrier that has all mainline service to Bozeman.
Well that was just an observation. Have a great trip!
