American / Delta – $346: Most US Cities – Panama City, Panama. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

We checked a whole bunch of cities and it seems to be everywhere from all those we checked including Honolulu and Anchorage. The only cities that we checked that didn’t seem to have availability were American and Delta hubs:

  • Dallas [DFW]
  • Philadelphia [PHL]
  • Charlotte [CLT]
  • Miami [MIA]
  • Atlanta [ATL]
  • Detroit [DTW]
  • Minneapolis [MSP]
  • Salt Lake City [SLC]
  • Cincinnati [CVG]
  • Memphis [MEM]

Cities that require a double connection will be $5 more.

Update 1/23/2015 @ 7:52PM Eastern – the American fare seems to be gone. Delta has the same fare for $346. See updated instructions below to search for Delta availability.

Per The Flight Deal Canada, also available from most Canadian cities.

    Hmm, what am I doing wrong? The lowest fare seems to be $411, I tried both from AUS and ORD. Any ideas?

    The Flight Deal 8 years ago Reply

    @Enrique – nothing wrong. AA is now $411. Delta now has a $346 fare. See post for updated instructions.

    Why would I want to pay 350 and risk getting stuck in Miami the price needs to be cheaper for a non direct flight.

    The Flight Deal 8 years ago

    @gg – for nonstop service, the following cities have it:
    – Dallas
    – Miami
    – Newark / New York
    – Boston
    – Los Angeles
    – Washington D.C.
    – Atlanta
    – Las Vegas
    – Denver
    – Tampa

    And since this deal is on American and Delta, only 3 of those cities would be nonstop (Miami, Dallas and Atlanta). None of which are available for the sale.

    As for it being cheaper, taxes is already 1/3 of the fare. The carriers are making $226 on this. How much cheaper can it be before they can’t stay in business?

    Just booked on United with better connections for $378 from LAX. United seems to have joined the lower fare club to PTY.
