For a flight to Paris from SWF, Google Flights shows Play as the only option with a $325 round-trip flight.
Play also has a return flight departing from Paris at 12:30pm Both flights on the itinerary include a stopover in Reykjavik.
Sometimes prices on Google Flights differ from those on airline websites due to the availability of third-party booking sites. In this case, Google Flights shows the total price as $314. However, if you were to book your tickets directly on Play’s website, it would still cost $325.
Play also charges extra for luggage and seat selection. Checked bags are $86 per bag and carry-on bags are $57 per bag.
If you choose to pay for a carry-on bag, you’ll also get priority boarding. If you don’t pay extra for baggage, you’ll be limited to just one personal item on your flight.
Seats cost anywhere from $5.16 to $41.28 for all four flights – the most expensive seats are at the front of the plane and include extra legroom.
