The PR reps for WOW at Weber Shandwick sent us a press release announcing WOW’s $99 one-way’s from Boston and Baltimore to Paris or Amsterdam earlier today. The PR release sounds great…at first.
It is $99 from the Boston or Baltimore to Paris or Amsterdam. However, the cheapest fare we found coming back from Paris or Amsterdam was in the mid $240s. (If you have miles and want to use those to get back, AA saver awards from Europe to the US requires 20K miles while United needs 30K miles). This is still a very good deal if you’re paying $240 for the return.
Remember, WOW charges for everything. We HIGHLY recommend you prepay for your luggage. A 20 kilo (~44 pounds) checked bag is $67. They only allow ONE personal item to carry-on and it cannot be more than 5 kilos (or ~11 pounds) for free. A team member recently flew them to Iceland. While a pleasant experience, be mindful that they will check and weigh your personal item and anything you check in!
And no, we are not being compensated for this post from WOW or their PR agency.
