WOW Air has a sale today for $99.99 one way tickets from San Francisco and Los Angeles to London LGW, Dublin DUB, Berlin SXF and Copenhagen CPH. There are fare sales from $89.99 out of Baltimore, Chicago and Miami too on routes to Bristol, Cork, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, Lyon and Reykjavik.
Travel Dates: July – October
These are real deals for one way travel to Europe in July and early August. Ticket prices for one way Europe to USA are much higher for July and early August dates.
WOW ticket prices drop to under $200 one way beginning second week of August if you want round trip travel.
You can also buy cheap tickets from Scandinavian airports to the USA under $500 round trip from about second week of August.
WOW Air San Francisco SFO – Reykjavik KEF (16 hour overnight layover) – Dublin DUB
The catch is the first date for a one way fare on WOW Air from Dublin to SFO under $500 is mid-August when ticket prices drop to $171.
However those low cost return flights are selling out.
Frequent flyer miles are one option to get back.
Or buy a round trip ticket from Europe on a major alliance airline. Stockholm, Gothenburg, Oslo and Copenhagen tend to have lowest round trip fares to USA with a return flight to Scandinavia in the fall or next winter. But again, those cheap fares do not fall under $500 round trip until mid-August.
WOW Air bag fees are deal killer
$50 carry on bag
$70 one checked bag
I flew WOW Air twice this winter and spring with only free carry on bags on $70 one way tickets SFO to Copenhagen.
Here are some of my articles on WOW and avoiding low cost airline bag fees.
How I avoid low cost airline bag fees (June 22, 2017). Warning: This article is about my recent flights on Level, Vueling, Ryanair and Norwegian. In my flight experiences, WOW Air had the strictest enforcement of carry on bag rules at the airport. Be sure your free carry on bag meets size and weight requirements or simply pay $50 to buy one standard size carry-on bag for your flight online.
