Flash Sale: Discounted Delta Business Class Awards to Europe Available Now

I’ve become a Delta SkyMiles fan over the past year or two, not because they are perfect (they very much aren’t), but because SkyMiles can be far more valuable for award travel than I thought. Multiple times in the past year they have beat what the other programs can offer in terms of how many miles it takes to get where we want to be on a reasonable itinerary. In other words, they are now a very solid tool in my…

Purple Friday is the new Black Friday if you ask WOW air, and it starts today, on a Monday. To celebrate “Purple Friday”, Wow air says that they have made $99 tickets available from Boston, Pittsburgh, and Chicago to Reykjavik, Amsterdam, London, and Dublin from December 2017 – May 2018. They are also reportedly offering $129.99 tickets from Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco to those same European destinations. I am a couple hours behind the curve here so perhaps they…

Fly to Europe for Just $69 on WOW Air

If you have been thinking about getting one of those really cheap flights to Europe but haven’t pulled the trigger, fear not because you haven’t missed your chance. Now WOW air is offering $69 one-way fares from six United States cities to eight European cities…because $99 one-way just isn’t cheap enough! There is a little bit of a catch in that to get the cheapest $69 outbound flight, you also have to book a return flight. The returns I checked are…

What Do You Mean You Don’t Want to Go to Venice?

Over the weekend American Airlines loaded some new seasonal routes from the US to Europe in their system for travel next summer. When they did this there was very temporarily a plethora of business class award space available for multiple people on the same flights. This. Doesn’t. Happen. Often. I not only wrote about it, but put a flight for ourselves on hold for next summer from Dallas – Chicago – Venice. I couldn’t easily make it work all the…

No Really, You Can Fly to Europe for $200 Round Trip

I very vividly remember not that long ago when $500 round trips from the United States to Europe were a very exciting deal that I would not only sometimes write about, but occasionally act on myself. To be clear, that was $500 for a regular old round trip economy seat and not some premium economy or business class ‘oops’ fare. In fact, back in 2014 I bought these $500-ish economy round trip tickets for my mom, my daughter, and I…

Two Very Rare Airline Business Class Awards Available Today

As I shared a little while back, I have a travel goals 2020 list where I outline where we hope to go each year until 2020, but it’s just a list. God willing at least some of trips on the list will happen, but odds are some of it won’t happen, or at least it won’t happen when and where it is currently penciled in. However, part of the reason some of it might not happen is simply because an…

Tips for Booking Business Class Awards to Europe for Summer 2018

If you are working with a relatively fixed schedule, getting multiple business class seats from the United States to Europe during the summer probably isn’t the easiest thing you will ever do. This is especially true if you are starting from a smaller US city and aiming to eventually arrive in a specific smaller spot in Europe. Unicorns exist, lighting strikes, and once in a blue moon the stars align to give you exactly what you want on a saver…

Really Good European Flight Sale Today!

I think it is fair to say that some have become desensitized a bit to European airfare sales in the $400 – $500 per round trip range, but you really shouldn’t be. At least, I shouldn’t be. Being able to fly from somewhere like Houston to Scotland on a full service airline for around $500 per round trip is pretty outstanding, especially if you have a wide range of dates to pick from. Along those lines, right now you can book…

Act Fast: Fly to Europe This Summer for Just $55!

To celebrate their fifth birthday, WOW Air is offering one-way tickets to Europe via a connection in Iceland for just $55 from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami! WOW Air is pretty much like the Spirit Airlines of the TransAtlantic network, so you have to pay extra for everything, but at $55 per ticket, that is still a heck of a deal for the right traveler!   Note that these tickets are going very quickly and travel dates are very limited, but there…
