Cheap flights to Europe over the winter months are pretty typical, but they usually don’t go on sale until much later in the summer/fall season once the carriers know that folks aren’t going to pay full price. Delta has decided that they can’t afford to wait that long and have launched a pretty aggressive sale to most of their European destinations for ~$230 round-trip from New York City. That is typical of the bargain pricing that shows up in this market and having them available now is a good time to lock in a deal on a New Year’s celebration destination.
For us the destination will be Barcelona. We’ve got the long weekend booked for flights. Woohoo! Oh, and we’re the only assigned seats on the flight so that would probably explain why Delta is starting to panic a bit on future bookings and dropped the price so early in the season.
A quick update on this: The sale is actually valid starting in late August for at least some of the cities. So for folks looking to go while it is still warm there are plenty of options there, too!
