American Airlines is currently having a fare sale between several major U.S. cities and Zurich, Switzerland. We’ve seen a few deals there lately, including a major Delta award sale where you could fly to Zurich for a mere 26,000 Skymiles round-trip. In this case, it may be best to save the miles and book with cash or flexible points.

Deal details

When: Late October 2018 through May 2019 (holidays excluded)

Where: SFO/LAX/ORD/BOS/DEN (maybe others) to Zurich (ZRH)

Deal: Prices range from $319 to $409 on Google Flights

Conditions: All of the fares require you to book a trip of at least 1 week, sometimes more for the best prices.

You can book directly with American. An itinerary from SFO on British Airways and American metal prices at $349 in late April. There are deals to be had on Delta as well, specifically from Chicago for $335. Alternatively, you could book through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal, where flights start at ~22,000 UR points round-trip, if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve card and can use your points at 1.5 cents each.

If you’ve been dreaming of visiting the Swiss Alps, this might be the time to book!!
