There is a fare sale across the major alliances to Europe in the period after Thanksgiving to December 15. Fares in the upper $400s and low $500s are available from Washington, New York, Boston, Chicago to several cities with Germany being one of the principal low fare spots.
On top of this between-the-holidays sale are additional dates for several of these same routes for departures starting again in January to the end of March 2017. I’ll break these deals down by showing examples of routes and ticket prices in the three alliances from each airport similar to what I did yesterday in this post for Star Alliance discount flights to Europe from New York. I had intended to show SkyTeam and Oneworld flights in that post, but on a Sunday I had other activities dragging me off the computer.
