Fare Alert Air Berlin $455-$484 LAX/SFO–Dusseldorf, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich

There are low fares from $455 to $484 round trip available right now from major online travel agency sites like Expedia, Priceline and Orbitz for Air Berlin flights from Los Angeles LAX and San Francisco SFO to Germany airports in Dusseldorf DUS, Berlin TXL, Hamburg HAM, Munich MUC.

This is an odd fare since I can’t find it on Air Berlin’s website and it does not show up on most Google Flight searches until you select dates with fares priced as high as $963 round trip and search an OTA site where the fare comes back in the $400s.

Here are some fares I found between 3:00-3:30pm Pacific time.

Departure Dates: early September to early December on weekdays is where I found fares. I can’t offer much guidance since I had to hunt and peck to find fares without Google Flights or Air Berlin website help. Still found these low fares on many dates from early September to early November on Priceline, Orbitz and Expedia.

Los Angeles – Dusseldorf Air Berlin fares on Google Flights shows $456 for Nov 14, 21, 28, Dec 5.

These are the only low fares in the $400s I see on Google Flights.

  1. Thanks for posting this Ric! I would personally never fly coach to Europe (at least not until after the miles and points thing runs its course), but some family members were able to take advantage of this deal because of your post. $1 fare plus taxes!

  2. @Andy – Canadian airports with cheaper airfare to Europe is pretty much a guarantee. Good point to remember when fares are high from USA.

    @John – Thanks for the link to fly4free.com. I thought this fare might be available from other places, but I was watching the England=Iceland football game and too lazy to research other airports.
