TP : ex NYC/BOS to Europe $130 USD OW in Y

Longish post folks. This fare might be for you if you're interested in positioning yourself to Europe to take advantage of the awfully cheap fares ex-Europe (i.e. $300 USD roundtrips on UA from LHR)

EWR to OSL from $132 USD:

EWR to CPH from $132 USD:

BOS to AMS from $145 USD:
https://www.google.com/flights?lite=0#flt=/m/02_286,BOS,IAD,ORD.ARN,/m/01lfy,/m/05l64,CDG,/m/0k3p.2019-03-17.BOSLIS0TP218~LISAMS1TP674;c:USD;e:1;sd:1;t:b;tt ;sp:2.USD.14420

BOS to CPH from $182 USD:
https://www.google.com/flights?lite=0#flt=/m/02_286,BOS,IAD,ORD.ARN,/m/01lfy,/m/05l64,CDG,/m/0k3p.2019-05-19.BOSLIS0TP218~LISCPH1TP754;c:USD;e:1;a:STAR_ALLI ANCE;sd:1;t:b;tt;sp:2.USD.18120

Availability is pretty wide open from now thru June. Can't comment on the quality of TP service. I suspect this is not an Economy Basic fare so you should have baggage allowance, lounge access and all the rest if you're a *Gold. In addition, there may be milage accrual but I can't be bothered putting my glasses on cause it's so early in the morning. I suspect this is an Outstanding Deal and is why I'm posting it outside the Great Deals thread.

Safe Travels,

James

No baggage allowance on their cheapest fares. *G bag allowance is also not guaranteed. Standard 1+1 carry-on policy (they may weigh the carry-on if checking in at the counter). You do get lounge access and fast track security (if applicable)

This also works from Miami (I'm sure) and Canadian eastern cities (I think); round trips from all cities are good until either June 6 or June 13. Carry-ons allowed, but yes no checked bags. Given summer fares to Europe from $270 - $450 r/t I agree that this is an outstanding deal.

Also: base fares are as low as $12, with YQ making up the rest. So if you are good at losing fuel charges somehow...

There are tons more deals out there from TP in Y on OW. Basically pick a destination in Canada (YYZ) or the US (IAD,ORD,MCO,NYC,SFO,BOS) and a city TP flies in Europe (i.e. AMS, BCN, CPH,CPH) and there's a decent chance you'll find a sub $200 USD OW fare.

Safe Travels,

Any experience in exiting in Lisbon and blowing off the connection flight? Prices to Lisbon are not in this range.

No experience, but on a one way and no FF to worry about, I can't see any reason why a hidden city routing would cause any problems.

This is a really good deal because availability is wide open during high season including almost all of June and August from JFK. The same flights were selling for ~$800 from JFK yesterday before the price drop today. Cheapest fare I could find is JFK-LIS-MAD at $115.

O class gets some miles in various programs. But don't get dissuaded by this, you can book this fare in various fare classes online <$200 with checked bag, by clicking through to Expedia from GF. You can probably do the same on the TP site.

I believe you’re allowed to a free stopover up to 5 days as well.

Even if you aren't getting RDM on United will the PQM's come over? That's all I care about. PQM's.

Also, do not forget you can bid for business class upgrades on TAP. And upgrades can be (are) sector-by-sector.

I flew one of these fares about two weeks ago, EWR-OPO-LGW. I bid the lowest amount on EWR-OPO and got the upgrade. Best part was that upgraded flights now received full mileage credit, in my case 125% on UA MP. I also got the credit for the non-upgraded OPO-LGW for some reason. Overall, my airfare was $170 + $470, not a bad deal for when I needed a good night sleep on the way back to Europe.

The cheapest fares (cited above) book into O class which earns 0% PQM and RDM. However, it's possible to pay $30-$50 more OW to get a fare which will earn valuable PQM. In addition, not everyone cares about earning PQMs on such flights if the end goal is to position yourself to a UA HUB like, say, LHR where you can purchase a ton of K fares and do a bunch of MRs ex-Europe to get off the PQM treadmill early this year.
