$397 all-in is one great deal for New York to Moscow. $548 from Chicago is good too. The political climate between the USA and Russia seems to be having an impact on airline fares with several incredibly low fares to Moscow in the past few months.
The Russia traveler visa issue is one I have glanced over, but never studied seriously. I have not planned a trip to Russia. Airfares like this make me think it is a good time for thinking about travel to Russia. Stepping into Moscow’s Red Square seems like such a ‘cold war’ type of travel again for Americans these days.
