Fare War at 6 UA hubs – American SFO to Zurich, Lisbon, Munich, Frankfurt $414 to $464 round trip Sep to April 2017

Throw in Vienna for $496 and Berlin for $510 too. American Airlines launched a major fare attack on United Airlines hubs yesterday: SFO/IAH/CLE/EWR/IAD/DEN with extremely low fares down to $414 round trip for San Francisco to Zurich and $422 round trip to Lisbon, Portugal. There are several other cities in the $400s with Munich $456, Frankfurt $467, Vienna $496 and Berlin at $510 round trip (fares from SFO).

Sample fares:

  • Denver DEN – Zurich ZRH $443 Nov 7-14
  • Cleveland CLE – Munich MUC $456 Oct 7-14
  • Houston IAH – Frankfurt FRA $470 Dec 4-11
  • Washington IAD – Lisbon LIS $466 Jan 21-28
  • Newark EWR – Vienna  VIE $496 Apr 2-9

Some of these fares are available from September to April 2017 with only last two weeks of December and some weekends showing higher fares.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find an applicable discount to these deep discount fares using the British Airways $65 AARP off AARP link. Fares come out in the $600s through that booking window.
