Want to experience a taste of Europe without leaving North America? Fly from West Coast U.S. cities to Montreal or Toronto for as little as $187 roundtrip on American. And if you're based in Canada, similar fares can be found in the reverse direction from either Montreal or Toronto to cities on the West Coast USA as low as $237 CAD roundtrip ($179 USD).
Montreal is often labeled one of the most European cities in North America and since it's in the French-Canadian state of Quebec, you can practice your french and enjoy a hockey game at the same time. On the other hand, Quebecers can escape a bit of winter with a super cheap flight to California.
Best of all, these are regular Main Cabin Economy fares so no need to worry about the extra restrictions of Basic Economy.
Update: This sale seems to be fairly widespread between Canada and cities across the U.S. Although these prices provide the best value from/to the West Coast, you'll find similar prices from/to other cities throughout the U.S.
