SkyTeam carriers (Delta, Air France and KLM) is responding to last night’s United fares to Europe to a different set of destinations. We only found that SkyTeam is responding only from United hubs (Newark, Washington D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, and Denver.)

This response is mainly to the following:

  • Istanbul, Turkey – About $1,400 from East Coast United hubs (Newark Washington D.C., Chicago and Houston) and about $2,00o from West Coast United hubs (San Francisco and Denver)
  • Brussels, Belgium – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Ireland (Dublin, Shannon, Cork) – About $1,700 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Prague, Czech Republic – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Athens and Thessalonki, Greece – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Zurich, Switzerland – About $2,000 to all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Germany – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Copenhagen, Denmark – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Stockholm, Sweden – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Olso, Norway – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Budapest, Hungary – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Bucharest, Romania – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Lisbon, Portugal – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Warsaw, Poland – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles
  • Vienna, Austria – About $2,000 from all United hubs except Los Angeles

The above pricing is based on a 7 day stay. Based on a sample to Istanbul from New York, the business class fare is only about $400 more than coach! If you want to go to Italy, France, Spain or Netherlands, yesterday’s Star Alliance business class fares would be a better bet.

Update 4/4/2014 @ 1:00PM Eastern – thanks to a heads up from The_Real_Mitz, if you stay more than 10 days, its at least another $200 cheaper than the prices above.

Update 4/5/2014 @ 12:30AM Eastern – fare gone!

    It looks like the deeply discounted business fare ORD-IST that was below $1200 is now dead on Orbitz, Vayama, Kayak. The new price is above $3000.
