AA: DL Hubs - CDG/AMS/MXP/FCO etc $381+ AI RT

Availability from ATL, CVG, DTW, LAX, MSP, SLC, SEA, probably more. From now through EOS minus the usual summer and holiday periods.

Also out of CMH, non-DL hub.

Additional options include OW destination countries, in general...Spain (MAD, BCN), UK (LON, MAN), Italy, France, Netherlands.

Yeah, its out of all DL hubs, and quite a few more. STL, CMH, MCI, DAY.... all over the midwest. I don't see fares nearly as low to OW destinations you mention, though they are still quite good. $381 from basically everywhere - AMS seems to be the lowest.

Yep, I was just able to book 2 weeks over Thanksgiving vacation from ATL to Rome for @ $347 RT. The next best from ATL appeared to be CDG, but all were within $50 of each other. I was able to pick seats for the AA segments and noticed that there is a lot of availability. Combine with the AARP discount ($12/yr with coupon) to save up to $65/economy ticket (higher discount for Business) from what you see on Priceline going through their British Airways link...no need to prove age to get the AARP card.

I don't know. It worked fine for me. I just clicked on the Travel Discount and then chose the British Airways link (not their search engine). Some segments were AA, some BA. Their site slowed to a crawl about 2 hours after SF'ing posted the deal, so I did have to start over a couple of times. The final checkout page after entering my CC seemed like it took 3-4 minutes and I wasn't sure if it was going to timeout or not, but it finally went through. I used Momondo first to get an idea of what dates were "cheaper" since it was loading quicker, then specified those dates on BA.

I booked mid Nov to late Nov for $347 out of ATL after AARP discount and at that time there were several flights going to misc destinations with similar prices. ATL - CDG was about the same, Amsterdam a bit more; we didn't check Milan. On OW, Mon and Tues seemed to be the cheapest...other days were up to 3x more. My original post on here was right after I received confirmation, so around 7pm EST (edited for accuracy).

I just checked and the same weeks out of ATL are now $1300. It might be dead again.

SF'ing has updated their post. New destinations are Barcelona/Madrid, Spain
London/Manchester, UK and Helsinki, Finland. ATL is no longer listed, but many other locations are.

Predictably, DL is now hitting OW destinations with the same fares (LON, HEL, MAD, BCN are all OW hubs)

Makes sense. Last time this deal was active with OW, we noticed that places like OTP and BUD were also included and just not mentioned on SF'ing. Obviously that doesn't apply at the moment since it's now Delta, but just putting the info out there.

I'm surprised this is not getting more attention. I can get an OJ from Bdl to Lys/Cdg for $400. Sure, not the $500 BA biz from year prior but for my need this is golden!

Great deal, but the summer and winter holidays are all blocked out which makes it difficult for some (like me) to take advantage of.
