One of the aspects of the current deals to Europe from Chicago, New York, Washington DC airports and some other airports are low three day fares to many airports in Europe from mid-$400s to $600 round trip, primarily with Delta/SkyTeam and United/Star Alliance. These are good deals for someone who needs more EQM for elite status in 2017.
There are low fares from certain USA airports for fall weekend travel to Paris, London, Munich, Amsterdam and Frankfurt in the $400s and many other airports from $440 to $525 round trip with Delta/Skyteam and United/Star Alliance tickets. American/Oneworld also have discount fares, but mostly mid-$500s to low-$600s round trip.
Departure dates are most weekends mid-Sep to mid-Dec.
TIn this post I show four examples of weekend low fares in Sep, Oct, Nov highlighting one USA city (Chicago, Washington, New York) and one alliance for Fri-Sun fares to Europe in the fall. For New York I show both SkyTeam and Star Alliance fares for same weekend.
