AA New York to Paris still $491 and low AA/DL London/Paris Xmas fares

Ticket prices to Paris, London and Germany went up from the $400s to $500s and $600s or higher today with American, Delta and United from Washington, New York and Chicago, as I expected when the 96-hour Icelandair sale ended at midnight Sunday. What is unexpected is American still has low fares to Paris in the $400s for fall travel. There are still competitive fares between American, Delta and United on many of the same routes from Chicago, New York and Washington airports to Manchester, Frankfurt, Munich, Amsterdam, Brussels and Zurich.

This is a brief look at fares to see what changed from the weekend sale when many of these same airports were priced in the $400s on all three alliances. Yesterday there were loads of mileage run opportunities in the $400s with Delta and United for three day trips to Europe from WAS/NYC/ORD. Those fares are gone today.

There are some new fares today, especially with American to eastern Europe and Scandinavia and LOT Polish fares from New York and Chicago are some of the best deals available from Star Alliance. Those fares coming up on Loyalty Traveler next.

  1. Who want to go if you cant get out of the country with all those strikes going on!

  2. @Danny – not many deals from west coast, except Star Alliance SFO to Athens for $695. Scandinavia in high $600s from SFO. It is back to WOW and Norwegian for low fares today, but something will likely pop up.

    Seems like Tuesday has been the introduction of low fares for the past several weeks.
