Yeah, we said $263 round trip from the West Coast…

File this under deals where even in a world of amazing deals, we still spit up our coffee when we found this one. The East Coast seems to always get the best flight deals to Europe, but today it’s the West Coast with the absolute lowest sticker price. And unlike most of the cheapest deals, the $263 deal includes a seating assignment, full sized carry on, meal and drinks. Beat that. Here’s how to score one of the best deals to Europe we’ve seen all year, and even stop in Iceland on the way, if you like.

Icelandair, United, OpenSkies and Swiss are offering some of the best deals of the year for travel to London or Paris. Tough choice, right? The Icelandair deals include seat assignment, full sized carry on allowance and food and drinks on board. In addition, you can even stopover in Iceland for free, for up to three days in either direction. Swiss is sending an all out attack on competitor Air France, with crazy low deals to Paris. You can jet off from San Francisco, New York, Boston, Seattle and Chicago all for under $400 round trip, with many of the best deals under $360!

    1. And I post deals to FT all the time (premium deals), so why be a jerk and assume something is stolen when you could just ask, and or know that I actually contribute deals to these places all the time? You are why the world sucks.

  1. Thanks for this. I follow you on Twitter, but happened to see another blogger link to your post. I booked December $270 SFO LON with a 2-night stop in KEF on the way home. This will be my first time in London and second time in Reykjavik. Fingers crossed, I am really hoping to see the northern lights.

  2. Who could be ‘Stolen’? Just makes me think of Southpark and the Trolltrace thing 😂😂😭

    And BTW – you have no authority 😂
