Earlier today, FlyerTalker JakeRyan1 found some amazing roundtrip fares from Honolulu to Paris for as low as $661 in the coming months, and readers reported that they were finding them from other cities as well, so I wanted to do a little follow up here.

I went back to the ITA Matrixread this post to learn about it and how to use it to find the lowest fares – and though I didn’t search a ton of cities, but I still had a lot of luck finding great fares from several including these roundtrip fares from Seattle to Paris for several months starting in November beginning at a low $660.

Screen shot 2013-09-26 at 2.39.19 PMRemember, you can’t actually book tickets on ITA, so you have to go to an online travel agency like Orbitz or to the airline’s web site itself – in this case, United, to book it.

Screen shot 2013-09-26 at 2.48.25 PMThis itinerary would net you 12,429 miles for $660, or about 5.3 cents per mile.

Phoenix to Paris is also just $660 on several dates in November-January.

Salt Lake City: $661
Las Vegas: $654
Nashville: $657
Minneapolis: $658
Detroit: $658
St. Louis: $708

If you find any others, comment here and let us know!

I’d recommend booking these ASAP. United will also let you pay to hold the fare for 72 hours ($6.99) or 7 days ($8.99). I don’t imagine these fares will last very long, so I’d jump on them sooner than later!

Use United's Fare Lock to hold one of these.
