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 or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Star Alliance partners Air Canada and Swiss are offering great fares for travel in October and November to Denmark. You can book flights from several US cities including New York (LGA), Philadelphia (PHL), Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO) to Copenhagen (CPH) from just $359 round-trip. All flights are on full-service carriers which means you'll get perks like a complimentary checked bag, meals and seat selection. If you're flying from LA, you'll get to try Swiss' new Boeing 777-300ER (though it features a tight 3-4-3 configuration in economy), while all of the other flights in our example connect in Toronto (YYZ) which means you'll get to fly Air Canada's new 787-9 Dreamliner which features a less-cramped 3-3-3 economy configuration. Use Google Flights to find an itinerary that works for you and complete booking on the carriers' sites.
