I bought my ticket online after a referral from a family friend on where to get the cheapest ticket to Bilbao. The cheapest ticket to Bilbao was by Delta Airlines compared to ticket by other airlines.The airlines was a pet friendly and accepted vaccinated cats and dogs thus I bought a ticket for my dog Jessey. As a student with a travel ticket, the airline allowed free check-in for the first and second bags and only charged for the third bag. Delta is not my favourite travel airline but the travel experience with the airline to Bilbao was generally awesome.
