Did you bite on those low airfares to Japan that the major US airlines posted a few days ago?
Most of the cheap airfares are now gone… so if you were hoping to fly out of Abilene Airport and fly to Tokyo, you’re now out of luck unless you drive to Dallas.
That’s because a few cheap airfares still remain from a few cities. Given their volatility (availability might be a better word), you will want to pounce on these pretty soon.
While American and United have mostly dropped their sale fares, airfare on Delta Air Lines is still available in the low to mid $800 range from hubs of their competitors. This includes:
Philadelphia (PHL) $820 r/t
Charlotte (CLT) $818 r/t
Miami (MIA) $820 r/t
Dallas (DFW) $820 r/t
From Los Angeles (LAX), several carriers including United, ANA, Delta and Singapore are offering flights for $756 round trip.
If you are in Boston (BOS), United doesn’t want you to fly the nonstop Japan Airlines service to Tokyo. Book with them for spring travel to Japan (connection required) for as low as $771 round trip.
Be sure to check the rules for your airfare as some are now more restrictive on time compared to the previous sale fares.
