(Thanks to Flyertalk for the heads up)
Aeroflot has a sale going on right now with some ridiculous fares to ridiculous locations. How ridiculous? Good question. How about $527 round trip to Tashkent, Uzbekistan from New York (all prices I’ll list include taxes…) NYC – Tehran, $508; Cairo, $470; Damascus, $533; Dubai, $521. Flights to India are under $700 (which is yet another reason why British Airways was a little bit wrong to claim that their $500+ fares from October were obviously a mistake). Many of the flights have terrible connections in Moscow; some require overnights in Moscow which may trigger the need to buy the ridiculous Russian visa.
In any case, you don’t often get cheap fares to these locations, so jump on these crazy prices for flights through March 27th (book by November 30).
Be careful, though – if you’re thinking mileage run, think again. In some cases, you won’t be able to get those Delta Skymiles for these flights. Check with Delta before you buy.
