The past few years have seen sky-high summer airfares to Europe, as airlines have removed capacity from TransAtlantic routes. For most of the 2000s, East Coast fares to Europe during the summer hovered in the $800-$900 range. Last summer, we were looking at $1400 consistently. This was especially ridiculous considering most airlines were offering ~$2000 business class fares during the summer.
This summer looks to be similar. If you were hoping for a summer airfare sale, don’t hold your breath.
Well, that’s not exactly true. SAS is promoting a Summer Sale to Oslo and Copenhagen. The fares? A mere $1100 round trip. Quite a sale.
