Fare of the Day: Washington, DC (IAD) to Warsaw, Poland (WAW) $453.00 RT, including all taxes. Travel Jan-Mar, and Oct-Nov. Found on iberia.com
While all the sub $300 flights from New York are getting all the hype and rightfully so. There are still some good deals to London and Warsaw from other U.S. cities that are also available during this epic Iberia sale. This is about $200 off the regular price for this route, it may not be as cheap as Brussels or Milan, but it's still a great deal. Speaking of deals, why not get a free Warsaw city guide for your iPhone/iPad from Lonely Planet while you are at it to plan your trip.

Fare of the Day: Los Angeles, CA (LAX) to Geneva, Switzerland (GVA) $553.00 RT, including all taxes. Winter travel through March. Depart on Air Canada and return on Swiss.
Are you stuck in traffic on the 101 again, day-dreaming you were just about anywhere else in the world or maybe more specifically dreaming you were skiing down the snowy hills in Gstaad? Well, this is the fare for you!
Finding it may prove a little tough for some, we found it by trying select dates in February and March using vayama.com. It is easiest to find departure dates on Thursday and return following Thursday for this price, other days tend to make the fare jump up a little more.
Also available are flights to Zurich, Switzerland using the same search method.
This is sure to be dismissed as just another attempt to earn ancillary revenue, and perhaps it is just that. But Continental Airlines today announced a new option for consumers to lock in a fare for 3 days for fees starting at $5, or for 7 days for fees starting at $9 (the "starting" part is key, because fees vary depending on the route). Continental has always allowed you to lock in a reservation for 24 hours and to cancel with no fee or penalty. But this is different.
Under the reservation lock policy, your seat was held, but the fare could go up or down while you made up your mind to book.
This new option allows you to lock in the fare as well as the reservation.
Let's say the fare on a route you wish to fly is $400 round-trip one minute, but then goes down to $200. Should you bite? But first, you have to check with your wife, or your boyfriend, or check your bank account or consult your business partners. While you're checking, the fare goes back up. We see this happen all the time.
Under FareLock, you get to lock in the lower price for 3-7 days. There is no commitment to buy the fare, but Continental says in its somewhat vague press release that the option is only available on certain itineraries and fares. Like most fees, this one is non-refundable. The fee "will vary based on a number of factors such as the itinerary, number of days to departure and the length of the hold." For example, we were offered to "farelock" a Newark to Hong Kong fare of $1200 for 7 days for a $19 fee.
There's no telling if Continental will actually make money on this. If consumers consistently lock in lower fares, the airline could actually lose revenue. But if enough consumers use this option, and lock in higher fares (and don't shop around in the meantime), obviously Continental could be the winner. It's anyone's guess how this will play out, and whether or not other airlines will match this policy (some European airlines already offer it).
Fare of the Day: Boston, MA (BOS) to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) $432 RT, nonstop including all taxes. Grab your best green get-up and spend St. Patrick's Day in Dublin!
