We are heading to Switzerland next spring and are researching the most efficient method of moving our bodies from Orlando to Zurich. In this case the word efficient means the melding of economy, few transfers and speed (ie: we don;t want to spend 24 hours making this journey). We found a direct flight from Tampa (point on transfers & speed, debits for economy) but there's no direct flight back. Options involving a single transfer that gets us close is optimum, as is flying out of Tampa or Jacksonville (we try to avoid the mess that is International travel through Miami).

Chicago, Paris, Stockholm, Venice, Chicago. What's the best way to book flights for this sort of multi-city route? Orbitz doesn't seem to allow for more than three cities. What's more, I'm not at all certain that an online broker is the way to go for something like this. Any jet-setters who can offer advice would be appreciated! [more inside]
