Crazy Fare Deal: Transatlantic Roundtrip Business Class From 929 Euros, Europe-US

You can fly oneworld airlines Finnair, Iberia, American, and British Airways — carriers that are part of a transatlantic joint venture — from 929 Euros roundtrip between Europe and the U.S.

Share this with all your European friends but this is useful for US-based travelers. Book an award ticket to get to Europe to position yourself and then your trips across the Pond start in Europe for this super cheap pricing.

  • Book an air and hotel package at (the German Expedia website, use Google translate if helpful though it’s pretty intuitive even in German)

  • They let you book your hotel for fewer nights than your overall trip. Make sure to choose this option and just book one night of hotel. You’ll choose the cheapest hotel (hostel) and throw it away.

  • And be sure to select business class. You’ll be able to choose your flight, I like the seats and internet on American but would take the food on Finnair myself (and decide based on seat, not food).

Here’s a sample at the cheapest price.

Key details of the fare:

  • Several European airports are eligible including “Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, etc.”
  • Several US destinations work: “New York (from 950 €), Las Vegas (from 1200 €), Hawaii (from 1650 €), Boston, Miami (from 920 €), Chicago, Vancouver (from 1270 €), Tampa, Calgary, Washington, etc pp – almost every imaginable city in North America (even small cages like Flint, Michigan)”
  • Travel through September 27
  • Must be ticketed by February 8 but they may not last that long in fact they probably won’t
  • One free stopover permitted

Find the fare here or here as examples and change your dates as-desired. This is an especially good deal during peak summer season where coach tickets cost almost this much.

Be sure to use a credit that doesn’t add foreign transaction fees when making the booking.

    Yes, sadly expedia doesn’t allow month long trips on click & mix bookings. The only workaround is to book via the hotline or easier, book with a German travel agent who can issue tour operative fare tickets.

    Nope, those are fares ex EU, so you need to start over here, fare are not valid the other way around.
    “can you drop hotels and only book air?” –> Those are tour operative fares which require a 2nd item to be booked (car rental, accomm.,…) otherwise you are not allowed to sell those fares.
    But as written in the article, you only need a night stay, so by selecting a different stay date for ho(s)tel, you only pay between 10-30€ for the 1st night and get a huge discount compared to the public fare. And of course you never have to checkin at the actual ho(s)tel!
