This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend 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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.
Transatlantic flights from Boston (BOS), New York (JFK/LGA/EWR), Chicago (ORD), Philadelphia (PHL) and San Francisco (SFO) to Paris (CDG), London (LHR) and Amsterdam (AMS) are on sale from $322 round-trip. Some of these flights are in basic economy, so you’ll need to pay additional fees for a seat assignment or checked bag. However, a co-branded credit card or elite status can get around some of those restrictions.
