It’s like domestic first class…

Spain is fun to the max. Beautiful sunsets, late dinners, buzzing culture and views for days – and that’s just Barcelona. Add in the beautiful Basque country, sophistication of Madrid or the wild nights on Ibiza, and your trip just got incredible. But the whole trip can be incredible. While $500 flash sales in economy are cool, it’s tough to beat just $300 more for premium economy seats which rival (or beat) the comfort of those found in domestic first class within the US, boasting extra points and miles and other perks to boot.

The result: $799 and up premium economy deals to Europe, round trip! Whoever you book with, your ride to Europe just got a whole lot more comfortable. There are fantastic deals from New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and Miami to Madrid, Ibiza and Barcelona.

  1. I just came back. A really interesting side trip from Spain is to dip into Marrakech for a few days.
