It looks like those phenomenal fares we posted from Germany yesterday have dropped some more overnight, with even more airports across Europe being included! All routes have dipped down an additional $20 roundtrip with tickets now starting as low as $290 roundtrip!

The majority of these fares are from traditional United hub airport regions with rival American, British Airways, and their Oneworld partners undercutting prices to airports across Germany, Austria, Belgium, and Switzerland.

This is just a quick glimpse at what we've seen so far. Other routes and airports might get added soon if United decides to retaliate and drop prices from AA hubs.

Travel Availability

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.

Peak holiday travel times are blacked out, and a 7-day minimum stay is required.

Sale Period

This sale is unadvertised, and fares may jump at any moment.

Depending on your routing fares might also be available on Iberia and Finnair for slightly more but will allow for a broader range of travel dates. Upgrading to Main Cabin Economy will cost an additional $140-$160 on most routes, but will include one free checked bag, seat selection, and are eligible for upgrades.

Example Booking

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