Airfare Deal – Finnair: New York – Madrid, Spain. $611. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

We really like Finnair and their excellent fares to Europe — they are back for Fall and Winter travel. Based on last year’s trend, these will be the best priced fares from the US to Europe. The only downside, it requires a slight detour via Helsinki, which adds to the travel time and potential overnight layover in Helsinki on some itineraries. But if you don’t mind, these are good deals.
