Facebook Fan VALERIE LABERGE of CHICAGO has this question:
My daughter is traveling to Austria in August. What is the best airline to use when traveling to Europe? Also, for a four-month stay, how much should she pack? I know she will want to purchase clothes in Europe!

Okay, let’s start with airlines. Austria is a major European country so all of the major US airlines fly there (United, American, Delta, US Airways). There are also some fantastic international carriers that fly to Austria (Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, KLM, Swiss, Alitalia). Chances are you will start on a US carrier and then continue on one of their code-share partners. For instance, you may fly from Chicago to London on American Airlines, but then fly from London to Austria on British Airways because American and British Airways are partners. In any case, you can’t go wrong with one or a combination of these airlines.
