airfare drop

Just got a notice of airfares down about $250 (for me) lower than they have been. Now might be a good time for others to check. I'm still waiting to see if there's a further drop, because it's big bucks to me. And I'm real broke.

I just got a notice from American Airlines that they're having a fare sale to Europe.  Not sure if any of these work for anyone planning on going.

Nothing I haven't seen cheaper... Way cheaper... For me. Must be an east coast thing..

American Airlines is sending promotion codes for 20% off winter flights to Europe. That means about $750 from JFK to ZRH nonstop.
Chicago is slightly more expensive and there is no nonstop flight on AA or OneWorld Alliance.
I doubt it will get better than this, unless Swiss matches this promo - they fly skis for free (potential $200 savings) in addition to first bag.
So far I am cashing in miles, but with the right price ... it has to go bit lower to justify saving miles and paying cash.

Back on September 27, Delta was offering the following out of dinky old Kalispell, not normally the location for flight deals. Unfortunately, I had just handed over money for a lesson series. Plus my mom's not doing well..

But, the point is, the current deals are actually higher than just a few weeks back.

I actually found the fare on Skyscanner, couldn't believe it and then went to my Delta app to confirm it. It lasted for several days.

Another update for anybody interested in getting over to Urop ...
Swiss started their winter fare sales from NA and Chicago to Zurich is $732 anytime in February ! Great deal, and remember - your ski equipment flies free ( savings of additional $80-$150 depending on airline) in addition to your free bag !
Happy Thanksgiving !!!
