American Airlines discount fares to eight European airports confirm fall season travel sale; United matches Delta in Spain

Yesterday morning I predicted the Delta sale to Spain was the launch of the fall season discount fares. Delta $629 California airports to Spain launches fall season fares to Europe. American Airlines extensive sale today from across the USA confirms my claim that Delta launched the fall season discount fares to Europe yesterday.

There are numerous cities across the USA offering discount fares to many cities in Europe. There is widespread availability of dates from late August to the beginning of December.

These low American Airlines fares are available even from a regional airport like Monterey MRY with $664 fares to Rome in September. This is a deal that is widespread across the western states with low fares from San Diego, Ornage County, Long Beach, San Jose, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, Las Vegas, Tucson, Denver and many other airports.

San Francisco and Phoenix are two of the departure airports without discount fares, just like yesterday when these were the two largest airports in the western USA not offering Delta Airlines sale prices to Spain.

    good info. & really is a good deal, but…. i feel like theres very little availability outside of BA.
    any tips on finding more award space? i search, but very little for AY, slightly more from AB & IB. S7 space is kind of ok.
