Fare Alert AA/Oneworld $414-$480 many California airports to FRA, DUS, MUC, ZRH, GVA August 2018

American Airlines and Oneworld Alliance partners has one of their rare fare sales with ticket prices to several cities in Germany and Switzerland priced in the $400s for August flights from many California airports, including small regional airports.

***This fare is available from many airports across the USA.***

Besides the usual suspects LAX, SJC, SFO, and SAN, this fare sale also includes many regional airports like Fresno FAT, Orange County SNA and even my home town airport Monterey MRY pricing round trip tickets in August from low $400s to low $500s for Geneva and Zurich, Switzerland or Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf, Germany.

Update May 24, 7:30am Pacific: I see Basel BSL ($466), Hamburg HAM ($502) Berlin TXL ($520) on sale too.

American Airlines $438.21 round trip Monterey-Zurich

Monterey MRY – Phoenix PHX – London LHR – Zurich ZRH – Philadelphia PHL – Phoenix PHX – Monterey MRY

Mon Aug 6 – Fri Aug 24

I expected to find this was a Oneworld retaliation for some United/Star Alliance low fares. But I don’t see any comparable UA deals for UK, Spain or Helsinki at time of this post.

This sale is a great opportunity for Californians who prefer to fly from their regional airport rather than LAX, SJC, SFO. I don’t expect this deal to last long so decide fast if you want an August 2018 trip to Germany or Switzerland departing from a California secondary airport.
