American joins fare war $600s SFO to many European airports

American Airlines shows the first signs of low fares to Europe today with San Francisco to Barcelona at $603 round trip. and other low round trip fares to dozens of cities in Europe, particularly Spain. Fares start at $603 for San Francisco to Barcelona. Fares are $608 and $630 to a variety of airports across Spain and in the low to mid $600s for airports in many countries around Europe.

Departure dates are November 2016 to March 2017. I found some similarly low fares from Monterey, my regional airport south of San Francisco, so this may be a widespread fare sale across the USA, or at least across California.

This is the first deal I have seen from American in today’s fare war between Delta and United Airlines. I see these fares from Monterey and San Francisco, but not LAX at time of posting.
