There have been several deals posted on SecretFlying.com recently for global travel from Belgrade. One Skyteam fare that caught my eye today is $363 from Belgrade, Serbia to JFK and $498 to LAX. Star Alliance carriers compete at about $70 more round trip for departures.
These prices are seen on Google Flights and may be booked through major OTA sites. Often SecretFlying.com has deals that are a specific, obscure OTA fare pricing glitch. SecretFlying shows a 311 EUR screenshot for BEG-JFK. My searches indicate prices vary by about $100 on different OTA sites, so look around.
Departure dates: late August to March 2017, excluding December holiday period.

There are lower priced flights bookable online through European OTA sites. Google Flights searches show low fares, but Priceline increased fare by about $70 for most routes I checked. I found prices at 330EUR on European sites.

There are low fares to many places in the USA, like Las Vegas and San Francisco too.
The last flight example is the kind of ticket I am interested in finding since I bought a round trip ticket last week from Salzburg, Austria to LAX for a September flight and return to Austria in late December. I do not have a ticket back to the USA yet for January.
I seriously considered travel to Belgrade last month when planning my September trip. I ended up choosing an itinerary focused on the Alps of Italy, Switzerland and Austria. Belgrade looks like an option for getting me back to California in January at a low price with an opportunity to visit someplace new. Belgrade is considered one of the ‘happening’ cities of Europe.
