I was just reviewing the international airfare feeds and stumbled upon this $420 Delta Air Lines all-in July airline ticket from Houston to Ireland!
Not sure if this is a mistake since this price is available from Houston to Shannon and Dublin, but the price is ridiculous — taxes alone to Europe typically go for $130 roundtrip — and during the summer, on flights from the U.S., the total ticket price is rarely below $1,000 all-in. Going to do some more investigation to see if this is a mistake or retaliation (after all, it is Continental’s hub) — but I expect to see a lot of sub $1,000 summer deals to Europe this year … If you have the money, this is the year to go …
Right now, a roundtrip coach ticket from Los Angeles to Sydney, Australia ranges from about $1000 to $4,500 (and at other times, it can cost much more).
But now the new airline, V Australia (yes of Virgin fame) has a promotional roundtrip fare for just $619 – this includes all taxes and fees. See the screen shot below:
I accidently ran across this airfare this morning when perusing some data — you have to depart on 27-Feb (no other days), stay at least 5 days and no longer than 30 days. Certainly a promotional airfare as this is a new route, but I don’t ever recall a price like this that wasn’t a mistake.
If this interests you, you can grab this deal on FareCompare. But hurry, the last day to book is today!
