Mamma mia! Fares to the Greek Islands don’t get much better than this! Just in time for the early summer sun, fly from New York-JFK to Santorini for $387 roundtrip. Flights at this price are available on Tuesday and Friday departures starting in May with returns on Saturdays through early June. If that’s too restrictive for your travel dates, other days of the week and months are available for about $30 more, even including travel in July and August! Tickets can be booked directly on AA.com, where I found seats available departing JFK on Friday, May 15, and returning from JTR on Saturday, May 30, 2020. Keep in mind that to replicate this price, you'll need to have back on Finnair with an overnight layover in Helsinki (HEL) on the return leg.
Looking for a last-minute fall getaway? Look no further than charming Chi-town. Flights on nearly every major airline that operate this route from Boston are available for $49 one-way or $97 roundtrip on select days through November 13, 2019. With departures starting as early as next week. If you’re having trouble finding travel times that best suit you, book two separate one-way tickets amongst the carriers to construct an itinerary of your own. Like this extended weekend getaway leaving Logan on Delta, Thursday, November 7, and returning from O’Hare on Sunday, November 10, onboard an American Airlines flight for $97 total.
Fares are falling fast, just like the flow of the water at this natural wonder of the world. Have a look at this phenomenal flight deal departing Los Angeles to Iguaçu Falls, Brasil, for $526 roundtrip. We’ve seen some reduced rates to destinations all across South America, but this one is a steal considering flights to this hard to reach location usually require multiple connections and costs nearly double the price on other dates. You’ll be able to chase this deal on daily flights departing in March 2020. As an example, I found tickets at this price, leaving LAX on Thursday, March 19, and returning from IGU on Sunday, March 29, 2020.
Fly nonstop cross-country from Washington DC-Dulles to Seattle or vice-versa for $217 roundtrip this fall or winter. Departures on Delta, Alaska, and United are available on Tuesday and Wednesdays between mid-November and March 4, 2020. As an example, I found seats open departing Dulles on Wednesday, January 22, and returning from SEA on Tuesday, January 28, 2020. Keep in mind that flights on United Airlines will only allow for a personal sized item to bring onboard.
Fly nonstop from Seattle to Shanghai, China, for $365 roundtrip next fall on five-star Hainan Airlines. Hainan is currently offering an Early Bird Sale for flights in September and October of 2020, so if you’re the type to plan way ahead, you'll be able to score some substantial savings on your airfare. Flights are available on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from September 1 through October 4, 2020. Searching Hainan's website, the only place that I've been able to find these fares, I was able to price out a ticket for this rate departing SEA on Wednesday, September 2, and returning from PVG on Wednesday 16, 2020. Two pieces of checked luggage included.
