American and Delta is putting a few SkyTeam European hubs on sale – this deal is best for West Coast flyers. Here’s what we found:
- Amsterdam [AMS] – about $700
- Milan [MXP] – about $720
- Rome [FCO] – about $730
- Paris [CDG] – about $740
We found availability from:
- San Francisco [SFO]
- Los Angeles [LAX]
- Seattle [SEA]
- Portland [PDX]
- Phoenix [PHX]
- Dallas [DFW]
- Sacramento [SMF]
- Spokane [GEG]
- Boise [BOI]
- Salt Lake City [SLC]
- Tucson [TUS]
This sale is available from a lot of cities — tho, at these prices, it probably would make sense to buy it if you are West of the Mississippi — so if we didn’t listed above, you should check.
