It’s been quite a while since our last deal alert to Tokyo, but this afternoon, Delta is offering a bunch of discounted fares from a number of different cities. Travel dates appear to very flexible with this sale, with flights available from now through summer 2016. The cheapest flights we found start at $670 from Dallas (DFW), Miami (MIA) and Philadelphia (PHL) to Tokyo (NRT). Prices may be slightly higher on certain travel dates, but it seems that most of the discounted rates are priced below $700. Also keep in mind that since Delta is targeting AA hub cities here, you’ll have a connection in each direction — most are just a couple of hours, though some can be quite lengthy.
