The flash sale from US airports to Central Europe from last week has returned and expanded! There are too many options to list here; search for these prices from your local airport. The destination airports are Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, and Vienna. Dozens of U.S. airports are showing prices from $289 – $350, which is an absolute steal from tiny airports on trans-Atlantic flights. Even better: these prices are generally good from September through next March, including Thanksgiving. For ~ $80 – $100 more, you can travel during Oktoberfest of this year, or April and May of next. Unfortunately, Christmas and New Year are not included.
These are slightly tricky to find, as Google Flights seems to revolt against showing you these prices when using map view. Either search directly from your city to your chosen destination and play with departure dates, or use SkyScanner and search calendar months for best prices. Either should give you the deals.
These are American Airlines and Oneworld partner basic economy deals; that includes a carry-on bag and meals. Main cabin (seat selection and a checked bag) is generally available for $160 more round trip. These fares dried up very quickly last week, so book now if these flights work for you. Under U.S.regulations you generally have 24 hours to cancel these fares if you need to change your plans.

Stop highlighting basic economy tickets like they are some kind of a steal.
Or add in price of baggage and seat to the price.
I generally post basic economy prices because those are the consistent prices offered domestically and to Europe. In each article I also post the price to buy up to main cabin economy. It’s actually in the same spot in every article: the last paragraph before showing how to book. If the main cabin price is more than $180 and/or takes the price out of what I consider a “deal” then I do not write an article on that fare. Hope that helps.
Not seeing any of these deals. Closest I see (using the link on your page) for the same exact dates in your example is ~ $600.
As noted, this deal was destined for a *very* short lifespan.
