ROUNDTRIP FLIGHTS FROM NEW YORK TO VIENNA FOR UNDER $300 ON BRITISH AIRWAYS
Flights to Europe have never been cheaper. Right now, you can score a roundtrip from New York to Austria for only $300. What makes this one stand out is that it’s on a major carrier, British Airways. That means you’re not paying extra for a carry-on, or a seat, or a meal, or booze.
That’s 300 bucks all in. It might be time to check out Austria this spring.
NONSTOP FROM SEATTLE TO BOSTON FOR ONLY $216 ON JETBLUE
Flights within the U.S. are also on sale right now. Case in point, flying cross-country on JetBlue will only set you back $200 and change roundtrip. That’s a great bargain for flights around America this winter.

Frontier is offering $20 flights around the U.S. right now and throughout the rest of winter. That $20 is just the base fare. You’ll need to pay another $35 to carry on a bag. So think of this one as closer to $55 each way. Still…
