Our Top 10 Airfare Picks for Today

For most places in the country, we're in that peak autumn stride, where the leaves are falling and hopefully, airfare prices will as well. Flight prices change daily, which is why we’re always on the hunt to help you grab the best-priced deals out there. Following is a list of the top 10 fares that we deal hounds have dug out of that leaf pile today. 

Wednesday’s Top Fare Deals

These top fares are all at prices lower than what we regularly see for that specific airport pairing and destination. Some are part of ongoing sales, and some are unadvertised price drops that may only last for a limited time. If you’re interested in any of these handpicked deals, we recommend you book quickly to avoid missing out on a bargain buy.

New York – Casablanca $555 Roundtrip on Iberia

Here’s a fantastic deal on a route that seldom goes on sale. Fly from New York-JFK to Casablanca, Morocco for $555 roundtrip on Iberia Airlines. Tickets at this price are available daily, with a wide-open travel window starting in late October through the middle of March, returns in April permitted. For example, I was able to find seats departing JFK on Saturday, February 2 and returning from CMN on Sunday, February 10, 2019. So get to booking! Here’s looking at you, kid.

Atlanta – Tokyo $492 Roundtrip on Air Canada

This fare that we mentioned yesterday on the blog has dropped even further in price! So if you booked on a site with the 24-hour free cancelation, you might want to cancel and rebook at this better price point. Fly from Atlanta to Tokyo-Haneda (which is the airport closest to the city center) for $492 roundtrip on Air Canada. Flights are available for fall travel departing in late October through early December, with departures on Sunday through Thursday. Air Canada's website will bump up the final price, so its best to use a site like CheapOair or Priceline to ticket this itinerary. Searching on Priceline, I found seats departing ATL on Monday, November 12 and returning from HND on Tuesday, November 20, 2018. A Saturday night stay is required.

Minneapolis – Kauai $362 Roundtrip on United

The deals to Hawaii keep rolling in like waves in the Pacific. This time around we’re seeing lots of great deals from Minneapolis to the archipelago. Here’s one of those fares, fly from Minneapolis to Lihue, Kauai for $362 roundtrip on United Airlines. Seats are available daily starting in late October through summer 2019. Although, there are scattered dates beyond April booking dates, and some require two connections, your best bet is in the January through March period. On United's site, I found seats departing MSP on Monday, March 4 and returning from LIH on Monday, March 11, 2019. Flights in this price range are also available to other Hawaiian destinations like Honolulu (HNL), Maui (OGG), and Kona (KOA). On to the bad news, this flight books into basic economy, so either pack very lightly, or pay the $30 one-way baggage fee for checked luggage, because upgrading to standard economy will cost you about double the price.
