Seattle is the low fare hotspot this week from Europe. American Airlines offers a $432 USD round trip fare from Brussels to Seattle for most dates in April and May 2016. This low fare deal comes on the heels of sub-$400 fares from Amsterdam, Paris and Rome on Friday with both AA and UA. There are still low fares around $400 round trip for Amsterdam to Seattle with Star Alliance carriers. OneWorld deals from those three cities were gone by Friday evening, but now there is this low fare from Brussels to Seattle.
Personally, I will avoid AA 757 flights routing to/from Philadelphia in the future after this week’s experience. I think it was a waste of an Executive Platinum systemwide upgrade on the return portion of my Amsterdam – Las Vegas ticket compared to my American Airlines 777 LHR-LAX business class flight two weeks ago.
The deal with this AA $432 fare from Brussels to Seattle is the opportunity to fly British Airways on AA codeshare flights, meaning 100% EQM and redeemable miles.
