One of the reasons I rarely mention Seattle fares is due to the insanely low prices folks in Seattle can take advantage of by flying out of Vancouver YVR. For example, today there are fares as low as $348 USD round trip with Delta Airlines flying Air France operated flights YVR-Paris CDG connecting to Dublin, Ireland. In this post I list 20 cities in Europe with ticket prices under $500 round trip. There are several cities with round trip ticket prices under $400 USD with SkyTeam and Star Alliance carriers.
Departure Dates: Low fares available August through end of schedule, currently mid-May 2017.

Perhaps Madrid is more desirable than Dublin for warmer weather.

Or perhaps you prefer Star Alliance flights to some place like Lisbon, Portugal.

Nonstop Vancouver to London for under $500 is a hard west coast deal to beat from USA airports.

$491.08 USD Sep 11- Sep 20 (You can fly a one-stop itinerary for $419 round trip).
No reason to feel left out as a Oneworld Flyer
Ticket prices are a little bit higher with Oneworld flights out of Vancouver, but still some great deals compared to USA airport prices.
Nice sounds nice for a mid-September trip on British Airways.

Like I said, I generally do not write about Seattle fares since I would advise flyers in the area to get on Amtrak or drive to YVR for the really good airfare deals available year round from Canada.
