Under $300 for Transatlantic Roundtrips

Flyertalkers are discussing an apparent glitch which allows you to book inexpensive transatlantic fares and avoid the usual fuel surcharges.

For February and March is should be possible to fly from most cities in the U.S. to several parts of Europe for less than $300 all-in.

Using Priceline (their regular airfare search, not their ‘name your own price’ bidding service), you need to pair a USAirways domestic segment with United transatlantic. For example, Charlotte to Washington-Dulles on USAirways, connecting to United to Frankfurt. This should also work with the domestic segment on a USAirways-coded United flight. Saturday stay required.

The fare will seem initially higher, but when you click onto the final summary page the fare should drop.
