Sorry to spam the list like this, but I thought some of you might be
interested in this little bit I got from US Airways...

Read the fine print and the fares below are only through May, but they do
say there are sale fares available through the end of August.  I've not
tried to book (because I'm not doing a round-trip to Amsterdam) so I have
no idea what those "higher-priced sale" fares are.

Good luck...
