Prost to American Airlines who have brought back their unadvertised sale to Germany for another round! Flights departing a wide range of U.S. cities are marked down hundreds of dollars to both Munich (MUC) and Frankfurt (FRA) with these latest fare deals from AA and its Oneworld partners starting at just $351 roundtrip.
Departure days will vary slightly by the route. But in general, flights from the USA are available starting daily in late October through the end of the booking calendar in May 2020. Some routes even have limited inventory left in late August and September for a few dollars more, so click on the fare details below for more information on each city pairing.
If you're lucky, you might be able to find some of these deals overlapping with Oktoberfest which is from September 21 to October 6 this year, but most of those trips will require you to purchase through a third-party site and might cost about $20-30 more than the listed prices below.
Peak holiday travel times are blacked out, and a 7-day minimum stay is required.
This sale is unadvertised, and fares may jump at any moment.
In some instances inventory is selling out quickly, so you may need to book with a third-party site like Priceline or Expedia to find dates that work for you. In most cases, tickets can be booked directly on AA.com

Depending on your routing fares might also be available on British Airways and Finnair for slightly more but will allow for a broader range of travel dates.

Searching American's site, I found seats departing Boston BOS on Tuesday, January 21, with a return flight from Frankfurt FRA on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, for $351 roundtrip. Other dates are easy to find as seat inventory is fairly wide open.
