Beat AAdvantage Devaluation July Fare Boston/New York JFK to Portugal $633-$700 round trip

American Airlines has some low summer fares from $633 to $700 to Portugal’s OPO Porto and FAO Faro airports. These July low fares may be a response to TAP Portugal flash sale for travel on June 12 with fares in the $300s to several countries around Europe including Spain, Oneworld partner Iberia’s home base.

There are low fares available today for travel in July with summer dates from Boston and New York on Delta/SkyTeam to Scandinavia and American/Oneworld to Portugal.

Update: Sat June 11, 9:05am  United has Boston – Lisbon on sale for $708 round trip with several July dates.

FAO – LHR – Boston no airport change on inbound flights.

$649.66  Friday July 15 – Wednesday July 20

BOS-FAO $650 Jul15-20 AA

9,034 flight miles and about 8,000 redeemable miles in AAdvantage (BA London Faro flights earn 50% miles). This ticket will earn as little as 2,600 miles in AAdvantage for flights from August 1.

JFK to Faro FAO is as low as $700 round trip, but fares I checked have an overnight in LGW on return or pay $40 more to avoid airport change or overnight.

These are some deals to Portugal for summer travel and allow you to beat the AAdvantage deadline of August 1 for when the airline goes revenue based.
