Lessons from a trip to Europe

An email just hit my inbox from Thrifty Traveler Premium about a fare sale first reported by Mighty Travels at FlyerTalk: British Airways and American Airlines are offering some terrific business class fares during peak summer travel dates between Houston and Milan, with prices from $1813 round trip. When I saw that sale my first thought was that it can get even better: AARP members (anyone can join cheaply) can save even more, bringing the total down to $1673.93. If…

(EXPIRED) 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…

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…
