United LAX to Barcelona $335 July departure

United Airlines has tickets at $334.43 round trip for LAX to Barcelona departing late July in Basic Economy. That means no checked bag or add $160 for a checked bag each way. Still, $495 is a good summer fare deal.

One thing I can thank the now defunct WOW Air for is teaching me how to travel really light. I am heading to Europe today with a Scandinavian SAS GoLight fare and only an 8kg carry-on bag weight limit for ten days travel. United is not as restrictive on carry-on bag weight.

Overnight in Zurich, Switzerland

An overnight in Zurich might negate the ticket value for some if you do not have hotel points to redeem. I enjoyed Zurich a few years back on a daytime 8 hour layover with efficient airport transportation to the city center. There are several airport hotels.

Air Canada and American have tickets around $525 during this time frame.
