Lisbon is a cheap airline ticket vacation deal for Star Alliance flights from California with ticket prices from $380 to $420 round trip through the fall months.
There is also a low fare opportunity for travel from major California airports LAX, SFO and SJC to Lisbon, Portugal over the New Year’s holidays, if you can return Monday January 7 or later. The catch is the low cost New Year’s trip flights force an overnight in Brussels, London or Paris on the return. Paris also means an airport change from Orly to CDG for itineraries I saw.
Still, when most airlines want a $1,000 to travel over the holiday season to Europe, this is one deal that I would love. Unfortunately, my wife can’t miss work Jan 7 and 8.
I read an article the other day about German police ticketing parents of school children 1000 EUR who fly out of airports on vacation with children before the start of school holidays to get cheaper airline tickets. I wonder what they would fine a school teacher who skips school for cheaper holiday season airline tickets?
