A nationwide fare sale to Europe from across the USA like today’s sale is one that has happened fewer than 10 days in the past year. This is the most extensive fare sale to Europe this month from across the USA.
Looking closely at California is one of the easiest ways to display the scope of this sale. I see fares Monday morning 5:00am PT from San Francisco SFO, Los Angeles LAX and even my home airport of Monterey MRY with fares across Europe in the $500s and $600s for travel from late August into March 2017 with all three major airlines American, Delta and United.
I see similar fares from New Orleans, Chicago, Dallas and Portland, OR PDX. There are low fares from dozens, probably hundreds of airports across the USA. This fare sale to Europe is extensive.
Examples showing this is truly a nationwide sale. I see low fares in $500s/$600s from:
- El Paso, Texas
- Burlington, Vermont
- Colorado Springs, Colorado
- Boise, Idaho
- Fargo, North Dakota
- Monroe, Louisiana
to dozens of cities in Europe.
This is truly a nationwide fare sale to Europe across all three alliances.
Deals to Europe from California, Western States and Regional Airports nationwide
The deal here looks like widespread discounts from western states airports where we have not seen too much low fare action in recent weeks compared to major hubs like Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Washington and New York areas.
Some airports like Chicago ORD actually see prices rise from the past few days when they were in the $400s and $500s to Europe, but places like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland PDX and regional airports like Monterey MRY, California see prices drop by hundreds of dollars for the first time in weeks.
The fare maps below show my regional airport of Monterey where fares to Europe rarely drop below $1,000 round trip. Your town probably has fares this low or lower.
