Alitalia is offering a 25% off coupon for flights November 5 – March 7th when you register here. The thing is a bit screwy – the promo code is SPECIAL. It’s good for business class tickets as well – during holiday periods you’re looking at $1800 in business class to Paris, for example. You used to be able to use these Alitalia coupons on Delta flights, but not anymore, bummer.
The best deal here appears to be NYC to Madrid for $448 round trip after you use the coupon — it’s like 2008 all over again! Other notable possibilities: NYC to Istanbul for $600; Tel Aviv for $750; and Moscow for $500.
Supposedly you can get the coupon through October 26th, but with Alitalia you never know.
