Exclamation JFK-KEF (Keflavik, Iceland) $61 at cheaptickets.com

On Icelandair (clearly a mistake, so hurry. In any case, carrier may not honor.)


Some dates in June available. Nothing in Aug-Sept. I booked 6/26-6/30. I come back from Rome the day before, but for the price...


$61 including taxes + $20 paper delivery. Not a true mileage run, (Unless you collect Icelandair miles) but you may get a chance to put your miles in a UA account.

Wow! Great find! I wonder if this will actually work... I am planning to go 6/18-6/21. This would be my second spur-of-the-moment extremely inexpensive trip thanks to FT, the first one being JFK-VCE on NW/KL last summer.

So the actual fare is $0... that's a potential pitfall.

Haven't previous error fare episodes dictated that there must be an actual exchange of funds for the goods for a sale to have taken place?

If they charge a credit card, and send a ticket, it's a done deal. Since these are paper tickets, the question is how it will be issued -- by a person or machine?

Yes, I noticed that as well. I received an e-mail from CheapTickets claiming that my reservation has been "confirmed" (and not just "requested"). I suppose that if/when paper tickets do arrive, I would call up Icelandair and figure out exactly what's going on...

I am in, hope it works. What worries me is the fact that the base fare is 0.00 , like it was with Thailand last year.

The base fare seem to be $0 that might cause some problems. Almost as good as the BA's $20 WT+ promotion to any European destination the other year!

Fare Basis Code Information: Adult KOWISCMP


I couldn't pull the fare rules from Cheaptickets.

No way! What dates? for 6/18-21 didn't work
It will cost me more then $80 to get to JFK, so BWI would be great.
