Pack light? “$49” one-ways to Europe (round trip purchase required, basic econ)

WOW Air is offering unbelievably cheap flights on select dates through March 11th: just $49 one-way from the US to quite a few cities in Europe. The catches are several: First, round trip travel appears to be required (I’ve found several dates with $49 pricing if I’m searching round trip, but the price is much higher when searching one-way). Second, return flights are more expensive (from around $120 for the flight back home, though many dates…

Correction: business class to Europe for 120K Marriott points

Update: The chart provided by TAP Air Portugal already reflects the 50% discount on award rates. The wording on the promo page and labeling of the chart made it appear that the provided chart was displaying the high season prices before the promotion, but it is rather displaying prices after the discount. Thanks to readers Nun and Joe for pointing it out and my apologies for misunderstanding this one. TAP Air Portugal is offering 50% off on…

(EXPIRED) Australia from 44K RT, peak summer dates (Delta economy)

Delta is offering round trip flights from Washington, DC to Sydney, Australia from just 44K SkyMiles (+$113 in taxes) round trip, including peak summer travel dates in July and August. While this only yields a value around 1.5 cents compared to the best paid fares on other carriers, that isn’t a terrible value for SkyMiles. Note that I also saw some dates in the spring with flights to Brisbane for 44K round trip, so other Australian cities may also…
