There is a great opportunity to lock in low fares for a summer trip from San Francisco to any of more than a dozen cities around Europe with low one way fares from TAP Portugal on their new SFO-LIS flights launching June 10, 2019. An interesting feature of these deals is a round trip ticket is about $100 more than buying two one way tickets to fly somewhere in Europe one-way and a separate one way ticket back.
Nonstop flights SFO to Lisbon are priced around $380 one-way as the low fare in June and July. The real deal is ticketing TAP Portugal for a summer flight beyond Lisbon to one of the many cities around the continent priced as low as $279 one way for June and July dates.
Another real deal I see is the option to fly one way from several cities across Europe back to San Francisco for around $300 one way. Flying to Europe in June, July or August with TAP Portugal can be ticketed for less than $600 round trip with many city options for open-jaw itineraries. This is a rare instance of two TAP Portugal one-way tickets priced lower than a round trip TAP Portugal ticket to one destination.
Fly Norwegian SFO to LGW one way and you travel to Europe in July 2019 for $180 outbound and $300 back from another city on TAP Portugal for a sub-$500 July 2019 trip. That is an amazing summer fare opportunity.

TAP Portugal advertises a free stopover in Lisbon, however, I was unable to find these same low fares when attempting to add a Lisbon stopover. In every itinerary I tried the price went up about $100 on the one-way fare.
San Francisco to Europe in summer 2019 looks like a great deal right now with TAP Portugal.
