New York JFK – Moscow DME $458

St. Petersburg on Star Alliance
While searching Ukraine fares I found a real deal on Star Alliance airlines Swiss, Lufthansa and LOT Polish with low fare flights from Newark EWR to St. Petersburg, Russia LED airport as low as $513 to $531 for travel September to November 2015. Looks like Star Alliance is attacking Aeroflot for Russia while Aeroflot has lowest fares to many European airports in fall months from Los Angeles LAX and had lowest fares from JFK, until this Ukraine Airlines sale.
Ukraine Airlines New York JFK – London Gatwick LGW
$541 October 3-12
This ticket allows 2 full days in Kiev, Ukraine.
On the return the Ukraine Airlines flight leaves LGW Saturday night and arrives in Kiev at 4:20am Sunday morning with the flight back to New York JFK on Tuesday at 11am. I love this kind of routing with two days in Kiev for free. Of course, you can route this itinerary without the need to overnight in Kiev.
London at $541 all-in is a hard fare to beat.
The $525 fare is not one I could duplicate for dates I checked. The fare showed $525 on Google Flights, but priced at $541 on Priceline and $603 on Ukraine Airlines website for dates I checked.
New York JFK – Amsterdam AMS $595
October 3-11 (Oct 10 overnight in Kiev)
This is another fare that showed $561 on Google Flights, but $595 is the lowest price I found on Priceline with overnight in Kiev on return.
Aeroflot has JFK-AMS for around $600 for travel in May and June.
Ukraine Airlines offers codeshare flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco with United Airlines and Virgin America to JFK for the Ukraine Airlines flights. Airfare to Kiev priced at $750 to $900 from California.
