    For sheer convenience, I'd fly the Hawaiian Airlines direct flight to Honolulu. No connections, decent seats. You can also earn JetBlue miles booking it on Jetblue.com which is a nice way to get some points. Given that you're usually out of JFK/HPN, JetBlue is a good option for tons of flights p much everywhere. I'm biased because I fly p much 90% of the time with them.

    A direct RT is about 780-820 right any day of the week.

    You can get inter-island pretty easily and as Xno said, the other islands are a bit cheaper and honestly nicer.

    Unless he has the time to spare, I'd advised against flying to Frankfurt or Berlin. Frankfurt I forget but Berlin is about an 8-10 hour train ride to Munich. I wanna say Frankfurt is about 5 or 6.

    It's about 3 hours and 45 minutes from Frankfurt to Munich.

    They've got high speed trains all over Germany now.

    EDIT:

    Berlin is a bit rougher, 6 hours on the high speed

    Unless they drastically reduced the price from when I lived there, those ICE trains aren't cheap.

    Yep. I have a seriously epic set of train rides planned for our Paris trip.

    Paris -> Strasbourg -> Basel -> Offenberg -> Strasbourg Paris with an overnight on the first Strasbourg stop.

    Paris -> Bordeaux

    Paris -> Lille

    Paris -> Vannes


    ALL of those tickets combined was like 200 bucks a person. All high speed, like 10 minutes from our AirBnB.

    Shit is amazeballs.

    Random selection shows 75-125 bucks one way. I'd at least look at the cost offset from flying into Munich direct. Those trains are fun as fuck to ride.

    Further random selections show 45-200 bucks depending on the time of day.

    They are, in fact, just the opposite.

    BG TRAVEL THREAD : STEP ONE - REMOVE YOUR SHOES

    I'd say fuck it and fly into Vienna. Spend a day there because it's a legit city to visit and about the same distance as Frankfurt which is a shithole. Plus the train ride is pretty bad ass because you'll go through the Bavarian alps on mostly scary high as fuck train tracks lol.

    Either way like myself and Zet said, I wouldn't want anything else to do with Munich during Oktoberfest other than obviously attending it.

    Frankfurt does really suck for anything but connecting to another flight but it's balls cheap to fly into most of the time compared to most of Germany.

    I honestly wouldn't know much about flight prices since I always just drove or trained everywhere I went.

    Direct flights to Munich from JFK are about 40-70% more expensive than to Frankfurt during Oktoberfest. Connecting flights are about the same price as flights to Frankfurt but the total travel times are significantly higher (12-14 hours total)

    Also, just as a heads up.

    Flying to Europe during the fall this year is the cheapest I have EVER seen on major carriers and low cost carriers.

    Tickets to Paris can be had for 450 bucks RT. London ~500 (Under 400 if you want to jump on Norwegian or WOW Air)

    Basically under 500 bucks to anywhere in Europe if you're moderately flexible.

    Were you stationed in Germany when you signed up?
