Frontier is back with yet another round of "buck fares". These are $1 each way base fares, but after taxes and booking fees, the total comes to $39 roundtrip.

Delta had a large scale nationwide sale a few weeks ago and the fares have stuck around well past the sales expiration date.

This is Icelandair's Economy Light fare, which only includes carry-on bags and a possible stopover in Iceland up to three nights. Consider the standard Economy fare if you need to check bags and/or want a longer stopover in Iceland. I found seats departing Boston BOS on Tuesday, November 27, returning from Dublin DUB on Wednesday, December 5.
