American Airlines European Sale

American Airlines has announced a fare sale from major U.S. airports to some of its European destinations, including Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Manchester, Paris, and Zurich.

Fares are competitive, but not always exceptional, and depending on your individual itinerary you might find better deals with other airlines, so be sure to use the Orbitz 30-day flexible search tool to plan your travels.

However, one notable feature of the sale is the generous 60-day maximum stay on fares to London and Manchester, which allows you to spend June and most of July in Europe for what is essentially the price of a spring ticket. As you can see from the samples below, we found fares available for even longer stays.

  • Buy before March 29
  • Leave before May 27
  • Return before June 27 (from continental Europe) or
    July 27 (from United Kingdom)
