Fare Deal Alert: NYC to Europe Under $150 OW, Los Angeles to Tokyo $370 OW
[Update: fare is now gone.]
I just booked a flight for under $370 from Los Angeles to Tokyo, with a stop of four days in Budapest along the way.
There are reports of fares below $150 originating from NYC.
As with all potential “mistake” fares:
- DO NOT CALL the airlines or booking sites while the deal is still live as that will kill it prematurely.
- Do not book other non-refundable arrangements (hotels, return flights, etc.) until it is confirmed the fare will be honored.
- If the fare isn’t honored don’t get upset; just move on to the next deal. 🙂
This being a book-now-think-later situation, I haven’t figured out how I will get home but most likely it will be using miles (an award ticket on American starts at 25,000 miles). And if I have a complete change of heart, the airfare was booked via Priceline which provides a full refund up to 11:30pm ET the day after booking, so I’ll just be out a $7 processing fee.
