SFO to Rome $385 Star Alliance Jan-May

One of the Europe fare deals I have been watching this week is United-Star Alliance San Francisco to Rome. My wife loved our three days in Rome last June and she would like to return to the ‘eternal city’ – preferably in cooler weather, which makes January to May 2019 low fare deals of interest to me.

One of the challenges with Google Flights is finding a ticket that prices for the dates selected. My searches showed that low fare itineraries found on Google Flights were easily replicated through Momondo.com and Skyscanner with the lower fares.

United Airlines (Air Canada operated flights)

San Francisco SFO – Toronto YYZ – Rome FCO – Montreal YUL – SFO

$385.13 round trip  Mon March 4 – Wed March 13

Momondo.com Brussels Airlines  San Francisco SFO – Washington IAD – Rome FCO – IAD -SFO

$384.02 (TravoMint.com)  Tue April 16 – Wed April 24 (Easter holiday weekend)

Oneworld airlines shows up with similarly low fares on many Google Flights searches, however, I could not get these to price anywhere near $400 round trip for March-April dates I checked.
