Low fall season fares to Europe on LOT Polish Airlines is the deal I was researching when I decided New York JFK to Moscow SVO at $397 round trip deserved its own post. Chicago to Moscow is $548. LOT Polish has some great airfare deals for Poland and several eastern European countries available now for travel in the fall. This sale ends on May 31, 2015.
This post looks more closely at LOT Polish fares from Chicago to places like Warsaw, Budapest, Frankfurt and Hamburg, since Moscow is not exactly a hot tourist destination for American travelers. LOT airfare is $598 to low $600s for several eastern Europe cities to $700s for destinations in western Europe beginning September and into early December 2015.
I’d be reluctant to buy airfare over $700 since there is a good chance a lower fare will come along during summer. That being said, fares in the $700s from Chicago are not too high priced with this LOT Polish sale and there are advantages to locking in a deal now and stop searching airfare. The best deals are eastern European airports like Sofia and Bucharest.
Your time can be better spent planning other details of the trip once you have airline tickets purchased. One of the hardest things to get my head around is spending six hours searching for better deals to save another $200 is not necessarily worth my time. Good thing for me I can often generate a travel deal article out of my searches to recoup some of the time wasted saving an extra $50 or $100.
