This incredible deal to Paris and Rome is back from both coasts. While NYC seems to consistently see fares to Europe under $300 roundtrip, Boston and LA only get these flash deals from time to time. Fly from either coast to Rome or Paris for around $250 roundtrip on American Airlines. And if you prefer another airport in the LA area, there are similar fares from nearly all airports in SoCal.

Cheap Flights from LA and Boston to Paris or Rome
Basic Economy or Economy Light fares only includes a carry-on bag plus a small personal item. The first checked bag will cost $60 each way. However, if you need to check a bag, it's cheaper for an upgrade to a standard Economy fare, which includes one free checked bag and more.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for this price. You may be able to pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
A standard or Main Cabin Economy fare will cost an additional $90 roundtrip. This type of fare includes one free checked bag and advanced seat assignments. American Airlines allows ticket changes (fee applies) on both Basic Economy and Main Cabin Economy fares.

As an example, I found $249 roundtrip flights departing Los Angeles LAX on Wednesday, February 12, returning from Rome FCO on Thursday, February 20. Perfect for a week in Rome over Valentine's Day.
