Something happened yesterday – it started with Skyteam’s sub-$400 fares to Europe from OneWorld hubs. Than it spread to more and more airports and Oneworld matched. We also saw those amazing $400 fares to Europe from Hawaii later yesterday.
This morning United and Star Alliance are coming up with similar fares now.
Now Air France and Skyteam usually include Northern Africa (they group it as Europe also in their award chart) and today we can see the $400 fares to Northern Africa as well.
We had no trouble pulling up dates and making a dummy booking at airfrance.com from San Francisco to Tunis for $454 RT.
It works for many dates (excluding the busy summer months) and most US airports (but not from Hawaii).
