Another one of the low fare deals available today are cheap flights from Milan and Rome to airports across the USA for around $400 round trip for departures from September through March 2017 with Oneworld and Star Alliance airlines.
While these fares are only available for travel starting in Italy, the option to use frequent flyer miles one way or buy a low fare one-way ticket with Norwegian or Wow allows a US resident to take two or three trips to Europe from some some cities where the cost to fly to Rome or Milan is 2x-3x the $400 ticket price from Rome/Milan to USA.
See my earlier post from this morning for examples of using Norwegian and RyanAir for cheap positioning flights to most anywhere in Europe.

Similar fares from Milan to USA. This makes open jaw itineraries possible with flights from Milan or Rome to USA and return to other city in Italy or some other city in Europe with similarly low fares. I show an example in this post flying from Rome, Italy to Los Angeles in September with an open-jaw ticket from LAX to Madrid, Spain in November for $393 round trip on American Airlines.

You can ticket an open-jaw Rome to Denver for September and return Denver to Venice for Thanksgiving for $509 round trip on British Airways.

There are low fare deals to several countries in Europe making open-jaw itineraries to different countries another possibility.
For example, here is Rome to Los Angeles in September with return flight in November to Madrid.
