Last night, I, along with a lot of other bloggers, reported a major fare sale from the US to Europe for as low as the mid $400s. Average prices were in the $400-750 range, and there were a variety of departure and arrival cities available. Most of the good fares were surprisingly available on US Airways, American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia. There were also a smattering of decent fares on United and Air Canada, too.
So, here’s what I scored. A nice President’s Day getaway to Milan!
The grand total? $715…a very reasonable price on this route. Here’s what makes this even better – by the end of the year, I’ll have 8 American Airlines systemwide upgrades to use; I’ve checked the availability on both of the international legs, and Business Class is wide open. Looks like a good chance of scoring a seat up front.
The routing is 8386 miles round-trip, which will provide a nice start to my early quest to pursue Executive Platinum status. I’m hoping to book a room at the Park Hyatt Milan for the short 3 night excursion, so stay tuned for more details as I look into lodging options!
Did you book any great airfares last night? Where to and for how much?
