A few weeks ago, we highlighted some great fares from Los Angeles to Copenhagen on American Airlines which at the time were starting at under $700 roundtrip. Not only are those sale fares still available, other airlines have also jumped in and are offering comparable fares on the route.
The best way to search for dates is to head over to Google Flights where you can get a calendar view. You’ll see many dates available in both the April-June and August-November timeframes.
Oneworld carriers are offering some great fares on the LAX-CPH route during the next few months. Comparable itineraries can be booked on a combination of Oneworld partners such as American Airlines, British Airways and on some itinearies such as the one above, airberlin. As soon as you find a deal on Google Flights, head over to American Airlines’ website, add your AAdvantage number to your itinerary, and book directly from there to ensure you earn miles for your trip.
SkyTeam partners are also offering a wide availability of sale fares to Copenhagen as well. KLM, Air France, and Delta are currently offering fares as low as $602 roundtrip from Los Angeles; all one stop itineraries with stopovers in either Amsterdam, Paris, or New York. Flights again can be identified via Google Flights and then purchased through the respective airline’s website.
Norwegian flies nonstop from Los Angeles to Copenhagen multiple times per week and is also selling some itineraries such as the one above for roughly $600 roundtrip. If you choose to try Norwegian’s service, be aware that they do charge additional fees for checked baggage, seat selection, and meals.
If Copenhagen isn’t your ideal final destination, you then could redeem British Airways avios, from the British Airways Visa Signature Card, which is now offering 50,000 British Airways avios after spending $3,000 within the first three months, to book short-haul flights around Europe.
As a reminder, if you want to earn even more miles on your purchase, you can by using a card that maximizes airfare purchases, like 3x on airfare with the American Express Premier Rewards Gold or 2x on the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.
