Chicago is the lowest priced destination I see for departures from November to April 2017.

  1. @Shaun – No. AARP discount only works when starting in USA airport for round trip tickets.

    @Choi – What a fun coincidence. I generally don’t look for Business Class and your email got me thinking about that on my first day back home from Europe.

  2. Is this only Europe to USA, not the reverse. Can’t find any roundtrips beginning in US for prices anywhere close to this.

  3. @Kate – Unfortunately this deal is only for tickets starting in Europe to USA and not USA to Europe.

    That is why I mentioned booking award tickets with miles for USA to Europe and buy a low cost Business Class fare Europe to USA.

    For example you can go in Nov-Feb on miles to Europe and fly back to USA in Business Class, stay at home a couple months, then go back to Europe in Business Class on the return portion of the paid ticket and fly home again using milesor a cheap airline economy ticket. With departure dates from November to April you can have two trips to Europe lasting 5 to 12 days or so separated by several months at home in the USA (or Canada/Caribbean).

  4. @Kate – starting in Europe is my normal ticketing strategy for low cost flights. I just flew Salzburg, Austria to Los Angeles two days ago and fly back to Vienna in December on a $490 American Airlines ticket.

    Then I will fly Stockholm to San Francisco to come home in December and fly back to Riga, Latvia in July on a $471 SAS round trip ticket. I still need to find a ticket back home from Europe next July. I have 10 months to locate a miles award or cheap ticket.

    Of course these are all economy class tickets. Even at $1,000, I don’t want to pay that much to fly Business Class. Great deal for some people though.
