We have been fielding a lot of requests for Summer travel deals! This is one of the most expensive Summer travel seasons we have seen. Even our normal go-to during Summer — California is expensive (we know, because we just paid $600 for a July ticket)
LAN, the largest airline group in South America and we believed to be the best carrier option to South America, just announced a last minute sale to South America for Summer travel (their Winter). We think this is a decent fare normally to Argentina or Chile, but for our Summer travel, it pretty good deal and you will definitely get more bang for your buck in South America than say Europe.
This does not meet our 6 cents per mile criterion but for summer travel we’re posting it anyways!
