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.
Update: Unfortunately this deal is no longer available.
More deals to Europe today! Earlier this week Air Berlin, Air New Zealand and Singapore were all offering discounted fares on flights to Europe in honor of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. While many of these deals have already expired, it appears that Delta is offering some fantastic fares to Milan from a handful of cities in the US.
The cheapest fares we found start at $467 on flights bound for Milan departing from Denver (DEN), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington (IAD). All of these flights appear to have a connection in New York (JFK), and some include service on SkyTeam member Alitalia. As you’re searching, be aware that many of these flights have quite a long layover, or even a change of airport — nonetheless, there are plenty of opportunities to find an itinerary with a short connection en route to your final destination.
