United has slashed prices on flights to European cities (for example: Paris, Milan, Rome) from the majority of airports they serve in the US. Other airlines, such as Delta, have reacted by dropping fares to other select European cities (for example: Zurich, Vienna, Lisbon).

There are no published rules for this sale, but it seems to be valid for Mon-Fri departures between Oct. 28, 2013 - Mar. 28, 2013 with a Saturday night minimum stay required and a maximum stay of up to 30 days. Of course, holiday travel appears to be blacked out and will come up with much higher prices. Have a look, and remember, these deals are unadvertised and could disappear at anytime.

Travel from January 11 - April 12, 2011 from US gateways. For the lowest advertised rates, you must travel Monday - Wednesday, a $30 weekend travel surcharge makes Thursday - Sunday travel a bit more expensive. Purchase before January 11, 2011. Other requirements include: 7-day advance purchase, minimum stay Saturday night, maximum stay 11 months.
We found the best deals to be in April from New York, JFK to Rome or Milan, when code-shared American Airlines non-stop flights resume for the spring season.
For you savvy travelers, make sure to take advantage of British Airways' free stop-over in London policy, spend a couple extra days in Londontown on your way to your final destination in Europe. Book this using the multi-city option and increase your layover in London for a few extra days instead of hours for the same fare price.
