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. In this case, however, you’ll need to search through Google and book on Norwegian’s site. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

Norwegian’s deals are back, with flights between New York (JFK) and Berlin (SXF) on sale today. We usually hesitate a bit to share a Norwegian deal due to the stories of significant delays, rampant fees and surcharges, and even lack of redeemable miles for premium travel on other airlines, but sub-$400 flights to Berlin are very tempting.

Today’s deals seem to be focused on Norwegian’s New York to Berlin route, which flies through Norwegian’s Oslo-based hub. Fares start around $370 — but keep in mind that it is possible to save more by purchasing your ticket through the Norwegian version of the site (select “Norge” as your language). Prices will be displayed in Norwegian Krone (NOK), and you’ll be able to save at least a bit of money on each flight. The lowest outbound fares appear to be in February, though there are plenty of good deals to be had from November through April.

Keep in mind that Norwegian will also add a ton of fees for just about everything ranging from checked bags to food to an Amex transaction surcharge, so you might end up adding a bit more to your fare.
