Today's Top Airfare Picks
These are just 10 of the best deals out there today. There is currently a massive systemwide sale with cheap flights to cities all over Europe from nearly every airport in the US. Fares are in the $400s and $500s on just about any route to Europe or North Africa for fall, winter, and early spring travel. If you are interested in any of these fares, we recommend you book soon (i.e. now) to avoid a missed bargain. All domestic flights work in the reverse direction as well.
Bills fans may want to just give up and head south for the winter now. Fly nonstop from Buffalo to Orlando for $57 roundtrip on Frontier. This is part of Frontier's latest sale valid for purchase through today. Flights at this price can be found any day/week, except Sundays, from late November through mid-December. I found seats departing Buffalo BUF on Friday, December 7, returning from Orlando MCO on Monday, December 10. Of course, this price only includes a small personal item so leave your heavy clothes behind and enjoy sunny Florida. Learn How to Pack in Just a Personal Item Sized Bag here. If you can't travel that light, checked bag fees start at $25 each way. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $30 each way.
It looks like Delta is having a nationwide domestic travel sale for fall/winter travel and other airlines are matching prices. Fly nonstop from San Francisco to Seattle for $109 roundtrip on Alaska Airlines, Delta, or United. I'd recommend Alaska Airlines since it is a standard Economy fare, which will allow for advanced seat assignment and ticket changes. Delta and United are Basic Economy, but Delta still includes a normal carry-on allowance, whereas United only includes a personal item. Travel is valid on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, from October 30 through March 6. I found seats departing San Francisco SFO on Saturday, November 3, returning from Seattle SEA on Tuesday, November 6.
Another great fare from the nationwide domestic sale, fly from Austin to Aspen for $224 roundtrip on American, Delta, or United. Again, avoid United if you need to bring more than a small personal item onboard. Flights to Aspen are normally much more expensive and I even found this fare for some peak winter ski season dates, departing Austin AUS on Wednesday, February 20, returning from Aspen ASE on Wednesday, February 27. You'll find other dates for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, from October 30 through March 6.
Delta also has an epic systemwide sale to Europe where you can fly from nearly everywhere in the US to cities all over Europe in the $400s and $500s roundtrip. Flights to Iceland are even lower in the $200s, even from this little town in Arkansas. Fly from Little Rock to Reykjavik for $266 roundtrip. Although the sale is for travel from late October through March, this price can only be found on a few dates in January/February for this particular route. Travel to Iceland on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, returning from Iceland on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. I found seats departing Little Rock LIT on Monday, January 21, returning from Reykjavik KEF on Tuesday, January 29. As these are some of the shortest days of the year, you may have a good chance to spot the aurora borealis.
Fly nonstop from Miami to Paris for $376 roundtrip on Air France. Another great fare in the mega sale to Europe. Daily nonstop flights are available between October 28 and March 31, and you must stay at least a week to get this price. Some travel over Thanksgiving is included, but fares around Christmas and New Year's will be more. This is Basic Economy, which only includes carry-on bags. If you need to check a bag, pay $80 more for the Main Cabin Economy fare. I found seats departing Miami MIA on Wednesday, November 21, returning from Paris CDG on Wednesday, November 28.
Southeast Asia flights are cheap. Rarely, do we see them dip below $400 though. Flights on China Eastern Airlines from Los Angeles to Bangkok are only $395 roundtrip on a few scattered dates in October and November. I found seats departing Los Angeles LAX on Tuesday, October 30, returning from Bangkok BKK on Wednesday, November 7.
Fly from Washington D.C. to Moscow for $442 roundtrip on KLM. Like the fares to Europe, this price can be found for daily travel between late October and March, excluding peak holiday travel. The great part about this fare is that it is a standard Economy fare, which includes one free checked bag and you can choose your seat. I found seats departing Washington D.C. on Friday, November 23, returning from Moscow on Sunday, December 2.
One of the best values of this great sale to Europe is that it's also available on nonstop flights from Delta hub cities. One such route, fly nonstop from Minneapolis to Amsterdam for $454 roundtrip on Delta or KLM. Again, this is Basic Economy so pay more for the Main Cabin Economy fare if you need to check a bag. I found seats departing Minneapolis MSP on Wednesday, November 21, returning from Amsterdam AMS on Wednesday, November 28.
Here's an example of how this sale is widespread. Prague doesn't see too many deals in these Europe sales, but today you can book flights from Boston to Prague for $494 roundtrip on SkyTeam partners Air France, Delta, Czech Airlines, and KLM. Travel is widely available between late October and March. I found seats departing Boston BOS on Friday, March 22, returning from Prague PRG on Sunday, March 31. This is a standard Economy fare so go ahead and pack what you need in one free checked bag.
Escape Chicago's wind chill this winter and fly from Chicago to Istanbul for $499 roundtrip on Air France/Delta/KLM. Daily flights are available between late October and March, excluding peak holiday travel in December/January. I found seats departing Chicago on Saturday, January 26, returning from Istanbul on Saturday, February 2.
Today's massive sale is so widespread that it even includes flights to North Africa. Fly from New York to Marrakech, Morroco for $528 roundtrip on Air France/Delta/KLM. You'll easily find daily flights between November and March. I found seats departing New York JFK on Saturday, January 12, returning from Marrakech RAK on Saturday, January 19. This price is the standard Economy fare, which includes one free checked bag and standard seat selection.
