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.

Some flights may be operated by Oneworld partner airlines British Airways, Finnair, or Iberia.
