We're seeing some big price drops on flights to Rome from a few major markets in the U.S. today.  Fares are as low as $242 roundtrip.

Similar to the flight deals to Paris we mentioned yesterday, these fares are on legacy carriers. And while American Airlines had the bulk of low fares yesterday, it appears Air Canada/United have responded by lowering its fares today.

Some flights may be operated by partner airlines such as Lufthansa, Swiss, British Airways, Finnair, or Iberia.

Update September 13, 2019: Fares on American Airlines have gone up, but Delta and Alitalia have joined this fare war from the New York area with nonstop flights and United dropped its price on nonstop flights from Newark.

  • Travel Period: November through early April; Some routes are only $20-$30 more for travel through May.
  • Travel Days of the Week: Depart the U.S. Sundays through Wednesdays; Return to the U.S. Tuesdays through Fridays; Some routes have may have slight variations.

Basic Economy fares only include a carry-on bag plus one personal item. The first checked piece of luggage will cost $60 each-way. On some routes, it's cheaper or the same price to upgrade to a Main Cabin Economy fare. Main Cabin Economy fares include one free checked bag.

Seat Assignments

Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for Basic Economy. You may be able to pay a fee to choose a specific seat. Standard Economy fares may include advanced seat assignments on certain airlines like American and United. Air Canada charges a seat selection fee for both Basic and Standard Economy.

This type of fare will include one free checked bag, seat selection on certain airlines, and the ticket will be eligible for upgrades/changes in the itinerary (fee applies).
