Early August Escape Fares

It's been a while since I've done Escape Fares, but there are some interesting fares out there...



Boston is showing up as ~$116 r/t on JetBlue, Continental and United.

San Francisco is showing up as $231-239 r/t on American, Continental, United and Virgin.

Palm Springs, CA is showing up as $185 r/t on American.

Caribbean/Central America:

Montego Bay, Jamaica is $298 r/t on USA 3000.

Also, USA 3000 is running a $262 r/t to Liberia, Costa Rica. Not too bad!

As for fares to Mexico, USA 3000 is also running around $302 r/t to Huatulco, San Jose Cabo, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. Every other airline/elsewhere is upwards of $350.


Turkish Airlines is running a great sale: $430-$440 to Germany (Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, etc.), $448 to London and $730 to Moscow. The fares look like you'll earn miles on United's Mileage Plus program at 100% of what you fly.

United, American and other airlines are showing me less than exciting fares. Seriously - $733 to England? C'mon....


Tomorrow I'll cover South America, Africa, Australasia and Asia. Most of the fares look disappointing, but we'll see what we can do.
