American Airlines has launched a fare sale from numerous cities to destinations across Europe for Autumn this year. Destinations are too numerous to mention but include Germany, Switzerland, and Belgium, and Austria. Of special interest: fare deals to Munich during Oktoberfest (September 21 – October 6) are available. I’ve been scouting Oktoberfest deals ever since posting about Springfest in February, and this is a welcome surprise. In addition, Thanksgiving week fares are also available from almost all cities, allowing for cheap holiday vacations. Most listed below cities will have deals to all three countries, but that’s not guaranteed. Some sample fares include:

  • Denver to Zurich from $374
  • San Francisco to Geneva from $387
  • Houston or Baltimore to Geneva from $397
  • Los Angeles to Munich from $402
  • Denver to Vienna from $419

All cities except Los Angeles have Oktoberfest deals for ~$420; L.A.’s sale fares start later in October. These are basic economy fares including carry-on bags; buying up to main cabin is about $160 total, meaning it’s still a solid deal at under $580 for any of these routes. You can also choose to pay for a seat specifically, but this may be more than actually purchasing the next level of fare.
