Booking flights.

1/10/2015

Now I'm a bit pissed off. Flights. I need to get flights, as cheap as possible and please, without stop-over and if there's one, please not over night. A return costs 141 euros, direct flights both ways. A one-way ticket costs 78 euros and there's a stop-over. Okay, that's fine, I can handle it. The stop-over lasts over fourteen hours. It's over night, should sleep, should eat. Oh gosh no. The direct flight costs over 800 euros. No thanks. 
I would say that I'm pretty good in finding cheap flights. I've searched for them so many times, last summer we flew a round between Helsinki-Oslo-London-Helsinki with under 150 euros per head. Only direct flights, two out of three with humane times and matching with trains and stuff. But now. Seriously, what's wrong with this, why can't I just find cheap and easy, nice flights.
I'd like to book three flights. Two different countries to visit. That's why the return ticket isn't the optimal choice. I've tried to search everywhere. I've gone through those many websites like momondo, opodo and vertaa.fi. None of them can find me suitable flights. I've checked the page of Norwegian. No cheap options. So frustrating and this makes no sense to me. How can the one-way non-stop flight to the destination cost over 800 euros, when the return ticket over there costs only 140 euros? 
Probably I just have to accept the stop, or plan again. Anyways, there's still so many moving pieces in the game that maybe it's just okay that I'm not buying flights just yet. But soon they should be bought, as I know from experience that if you delay the decision, the perfect 50 euros flight will be gone and replaced by 100 euros flight. 

This kind of things I really want to plan on time, and now the situation is annoying, when everything is not about me.. But let's see, this is (hopefully) gonna have a happy ending!

P.s. Okay, I don't even know why the long stop-over has started to annoy also me so much, as I know that I'm able to spend time in the airport, sleep where-ever it's needed and so on. But it just annoys and the thing that should be the best thing ever (as booking flights is always great) isn't so nice at the moment. Blah.
