Flights to Europe are incredibly cheap on major airlines from from many U.S. airports! There is an all out fare war on the three major airline alliances so if you live near a hub city, you can score a flight to Europe for less than some domestic flights. Fares are as low as $298 roundtrip on airlines like American, Delta, United, and partner airlines such as British Airways, Air France, and Lufthansa.
These fares are all unadvertised and prices may go back up at any time. Book quickly to get in on the savings. Some of these cities rarely see price drops this low so chances are these fares won't stick around for long.
Update December 7, 2018, 9am ET: Prices have dropped around $20 from Charlotte to Scandinavia this morning and there are similar price drops on a few other routes, while prices are starting to jump way up on others. Book quickly! This flash sale appears to be on its way out.
Travel dates and restrictions vary slightly depending on the route. In general, fares are either available for travel from January through March, in April/May, or in both travel periods. Travel to Europe early in the week (usually Sundays through Wednesdays), and return from Europe later in the week (usually Tuesdays through Thursdays). Some routes may have more days of the week available.
All fares require a minimum stay of 7-nights. For more booking info, click on the fare details below.

The list above is just a small sample of all the fantastic fares we've found today. If you don't see your local airport listed or are looking for another destination across the pond, we have a full rundown on all our European Flight Deals here for you to find what you're looking for.
These are Basic Economy fares, which do not include checked bags. A checked bag costs $55-$60 each way depending on the airline. Adanced seat selection is also not included on all airlines except United. An upgrade to a standard Economy fare varies by route, but most will cost $90 each way to upgrade.
As an example booking, I found seats departing Charlotte CLT on Wednesday, April 3, returning from Munich MUC on Thursday, April 11, for $390 roundtrip.
