Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
It’s been a couple weeks since we last wrote about flight deals to Europe — specifically to Athens and Dublin on Delta. This week, the carrier is offering more discounted flights across the pond between New York and Paris. Delta or Air France will be operating the flights, however the cheaper rates seem to only be offered when booking through Delta.
The deal might not be around much longer, as it’s already been available for a few days, so be sure to book soon. Travel dates appear to be quite open, with the discounted rates beginning in late September and extending until March 2016. Many of these flights are nonstop, however some include a short layover in Boston (BOS) or in Europe.
