I am currently living in Japan. I would like to get home to America for the holidays (preferably around the 22nd of December or earlier). I am currently looking for tickets - I know this is rather late to be searching. I will be flying from Tokyo to Cleveland, Ohio - but I am fine flying to nearby airports (as far away as, say, Chicago) if that makes it significantly cheaper.
I am fine with round-trip or one-way, whichever is cheapest (I have reasons for both, which I won't explain here). I have checked both options, and the one-way tickets are really not that much less expensive than round trip for some reason. The best price I can currently find for a round-trip ticket is around $1800. I have tried the usual sites - orbitz, kayak, etc.
If anyone can find significantly cheaper tickets, I would be very grateful! Even a few hundred dollars would make a huge difference.
