Yesterday I posted a crazy deal for west coast flights to Paris, including $247 fares from Los Angeles. Today there are also good fares to Rome, with a few more restrictions. The winter/spring fares are from Los Angeles and New York, with single airline alliances; the summer fares are only from New York this time. Available fares:

  • Los Angeles$242 Spring (United and Star Alliance)
  • New York$263 Spring (American and Oneworld Alliance); $385 (UA)

These are basic economy fares, with main cabin $120 more round trip in spring and $140 in summer. That’s an especially good deal for summer rates, given that basic economy will rise to $600+ for July flights sometime next year. However be aware: some “standard economy” options don’t include advanced seat selection. When possible fly a different partner that provides that in main cabin (United, American, etc) if required.

Air Canada. Note the fee ($17) for seat selection.

Of course, main cabin economy is a good sweet spot for using Ultimate Rewards for family travel with the Chase Sapphire Reserve. 24,000 UR round trip is a good deal if you’re flying a family of for (96K total) to Europe. Though, again, I’d look to carriers that allow seat selection to ensure you can sit with your kids.

I actually expected the L.A. summer fares to Paris to have disappeared already, so who knows how long these will last. But booking sooner is better than later with air fares, so if you’re looking for a good deal to Rome this winter or next spring and summer, book now.
