Delta and their SkyTeam partners are running some incredible fares to Russia. There are plenty of dates Baltimore to Moscow (via JFK) on Delta for $357.84 total roundtrip, including all taxes and fees! The trip nets 10,322 Medallion Qualifying Miles, or just about 3.5 cents a piece, which is definitely mileage run worthy. However, Russia does charge $170 in visa fees (you can pay companies like Allied Passport, who I’ve used in the past to save me time and frustration around $45 to do the dirty work for you). Russia is also pretty expensive, but it could be a great way to burn some hotel points. I still have two free suite nights burning a hole in my pocket from my Hyatt Visa sign-up and I’m thinking the Park Hyatt Moscow would be a great redemption since rates are astronomical.

To search low fares, I recommend using the ITA Matrix “calendar of lowest fares” which will “sniff” out the lowest fares and show them to you on a calendar. You can enter how many days you want to stay and it’ll show pricing. Then go to any online ticketing agency or airline website to purchase them.

NYC to Moscow for $452 is showing these fares and they will let you cancel free of charge up to midnight the day after you purchase the ticket, so if this looks interesting to you, I’d recommend purchasing now and finalizing your plans before they go away.

Delta Baltimore- Moscow for $357 total roundtrip!

These fares are available on SkyTeam partners Alitalia and KLM as well, so if you play around with the dates you may be able to build in overnight layovers in Paris/Amsterdam/Rome. Even though I’m not a huge fan of long-haul coach flights, Delta operates their newish 767-400 aircraft on these routes with a lot of Economy Comfort seats, which are free for Platinum and Diamond Medallions (and discounted for Silver/Gold). KLM will also place Delta elites in their Economy Comfort section, which I flew last year and really enjoyed -  nicer seats and a quieter cabin. I much prefer it over Delta’s Economy Comfort which are the same seats as coach, but just have a little more legroom and recline. Unfortunately these fares are not upgradeable, but I did see roundtrip business class fares for $3,000 total roundtrip, which is somewhat of a bargain on this route (and Delta has lie-flat beds on their 767-400).

Play around with fares and let me know if you book. Would love to have a TPG reader get together in Moscow.. maybe over Easter?

    It was only $50pp more to go to St. Petersburg, so that’s where I’m going. As a bonus, we are flying the A380 for the first time from IAD-CDG. Total cost for 2 adults and an infant $900 all-in. Pretty amazing.

  • TL

    Do I have to call Delta in order to cancel within 24 hours? The website won’t allow me to cancel.

  • Elyse

    MIA to Moscow for some dates in March are $472 roundtrip.

  • Windycityf

    $576 from Chicago in February leaving on Wednesday

  • Jsvtex

    any chance of star alliance carriers matching?

  • thepointsguy

    Was in St Petersburg this summer- beautiful city and amazing art- enjoy!

  • thepointsguy

    I heard some people got Swiss flights from EWR- try playing around with it on Kayak or ITA

  • thepointsguy

    Usually the website lets you, but calling will also do the trick

  • Dagoberto F

    Miami-Moscow $472.00 02/05-02/19 nonstop in Aeroflot

  • Bjw

    JFK-AMS (14 hour layover)-SVO on 1/24, with return 12:30p nonstop on 1/27 for $469.

  • bigr3dbears

    $416 on Transaero for 1 date in March: JFK-DME-JFK.

    Also, $452 for multiple dates on Aeroflot

  • highflyer2

    Can’t find it…probably my poor search skills.

  • Bigr3dbears

    use ITA and search month at a time for cheapest fares. There are some dates in Dec, more in Jan, and even more in Feb and Mar.

    Apparently, it’s a well known fare in Russia and has been available for weeks.

    Thanks. I’m finding the NY fares for $452, but not the BWI for $357??

  • sfomsp

    Why oh why did United have to cancel the DME route….could have had a shot at some good upgradeable fares.

    Oh wait we know why…avoiding this fare dump. Great deals…

  • Geocaddy1

    Seems the low $357 fare is gone.

  • mspswede

    $623 from MSP on DL metal via JFK. 11,378 MQM’s to start out 2013, and as a GM I’d earn 100% bonus. Add in 2x miles for purchase with my SkyMiles AX card and it’s a 24,002 mile-earning trip or 2.6c/mile. I like the idea of using my Chase Hyatt 2 free nights at a Park Hyatt, and why not in Moscow where hotel rates are typically sky-high? Just have to sell my wife on the idea, or take her along if we can send the kids off somewhere…

  • REL

    Can’t cancel via WebSite if any segment/leg includes partner airline (KLM or AF).

  • Alexander Onishchenko

    04/24-05/08 +- couple days – $1389 a/i nonstop business class jfk-svo

  • Michael W Travels

    We’re flying JFK to Moscow and St Petersburg back to JFK in late March. $512 round trip. We leave on March 23, return April 1. Did you end up booking a flight?

  • Shore834

    If you make this trip just for the miles and return back to JFK on the same day you arrive, do they question this when applying for the visa? Is it still possible to do that, or should I count on staying at least one night to not raise any questions? (I found a comparable price on a weekend in March – $578.)
