Even more impressive than SkyTeam $504 Oakland to Inverness, Scotland INV round trip ticket prices today were prices $50 lower two days ago.
This post is not a lament over a low fare to Europe that is priced higher today. Rather, this is a reminder that some of the lowest fares to Europe frequently go through Aberdeen ABZ and Inverness INV airports in Scotland.
Flying the reverse route from Inverness to San Francisco at $333 round trip is still around today for travel in September and October.
