The deals this past week out of normally high priced Seattle, Portland and Denver to Europe continue with Seattle to Munich on sale in December with American, Delta and United. The common factor for these three airports are low Icelandair fares on various changing routes. I wrote about low ticket prices for Seattle-Frankfurt last Monday, Sep 5. That deal is still around. Loyalty Traveler – AA/DL/FI/UA $504-$571 Seattle to Frankfurt Oct-Mar.
The new aspect to the sale is Icelandair has about 10 to 15 dates in November and December with Seattle to Munich priced at $478 to $496 round trip. The major alliances have dropped fares for a very limited period from December 10-20 departures only, meaning a Christmas season trip to Munich is a possibility at a fare in the low $500s round trip.
American/Delta/United Seattle to Munich
United/Star Alliance has the most dates Dec 10-20 and lowest fares at $498 round trip.
American/Oneworld limits departures to Dec 10-20 with fares at $505 to $536 round trip.
Delta/SkyTeam is barely in this fare war with only Dec 10-12, 14 at $505-$536 round trip.
Icelandair is $478 round trip, but latest departure is Dec 9.
United or American to Munich for Christmas in low $500s
United Airlines and American Airlines are the most favorable ticket prices for a Christmas week trip with low fares up to Dec 20 departures and returns by Dec 31 or from January 3. Delta Airlines is about $100 more in low $600s and less favorable routing, but offers good deals for travel the week before Christmas.
