Interesting fare “skirmish” right now, as the big 3 U.S. airlines and their alliance partners are offering great prices to Europe. But what’s unusual: each airline is offering low prices from a competitor’s hub airports. Even Atlanta, which almost never has <$500 deals, is on sale. You don’t need to know which cities are somebody’s “home base”, you just need to know what’s on sale. Some of the best options:

  • San Francisco: to Paris from $293 (Delta/Air France) – maybe the best deal here
  • Los Angeles: to Barcelona from $329 (American)
  • New York/Newark$229 to Madrid (United); NY/JFK$255 to Paris (AA), NY/LGA$290 to Paris (AA) – these are just good prices, not “fare skirmishes”
  • Philadelphia (UA, Air Canada)$372 to Barcelona$367 to Brussels
  • Atlanta (all American Airlines)$454 to Barcelona$461 to Warsaw$477 to Rome$488 to Paris
  • Dallas: $520 to Amsterdam (Delta)

These are basic economy fares; buying up to main economy runs $120 – $180 total for checked bag and seat choice. Fares generally run from fall through the end of winter/early spring. There are more deals I didn’t list to avoid flooding you with information, so if you can reach these hubs easily, check google Flights or your favorite OTA for other opportunities.
