Prost to American Airlines and its Oneworld partners who have brought back their unadvertised sale to Germany for another round! Flights departing from a wide range of U.S. cities are marked down hundreds of dollars to both Munich (MUC) and Frankfurt (FRA) with these latest fare deals starting at just $335 roundtrip.

Travel Availability

  • Travel Period: March departures are the cheapest, but fall flights from October onward are about $10-20 more depending on city pair.
  • Travel Days of the Week: Travel to Europe Sundays through Wednesdays, returning from Europe Tuesdays through Fridays. A few routes may have the same or similar low fares for travel on other days of the week.
  • Minimum Stay: A 7 -night stay is required.

If you're lucky, you might be able to find a few similar prices in September overlapping with Oktoberfest, which is from September 19 to October 4 this year. Most routes will have much higher prices around these dates, but I found that if you're able to route on British Airways, you can find some similar fares available from a few select cities.

Sale Period

This sale is unadvertised, and fares may jump at any moment. Try many different sites if you are finding prices jumping as inventory is going quickly and may still be available on another booking engine.
