Aw, crap...next time I should drink the coffee before reading flight times, instead of after.

I figured it was something like that. I just wanted to make sure you weren't talking yourself into a flight through Dublin because you thought it had a shorter connection. If it was 4 1/2 hours from New York to Dublin, I'd be on that flight every time. :-)

How is Continental on refunding fare differences? If I book the $711 now, and there's a fare drop in February for spring fares, are they easy to deal with? Is it worth it to book thru Orbitz for their fare guarantee? Or too gimmicky since the airline may do the same?

Looking at the small print on the Orbitz, it's only good for flights within the 50 US states, so this itinerary would not be eligible. I believe their low price guarantee applies to finding a lower fare on the same day you book. I haven't had a situation where the airfare dropped much lower. Mostly it is because I don't that far out, usually about a month or so out.

I've known folks who have got a refund in the form of credit toward another booking on CO and other airlines, but the fare had to drop a lot. I believe the airline would refund the difference between the airfares after the change fee was assessed for re booking the tickets at the lower price. If the change fees for CO are at $250, then the price would need to drop to around $460 before you start getting an credit.
