$329 R/T from Orange County, CA to Madrid!
I just posted this on the airlines forum, but thought it's applicable for here too. Just booked it for a long weekend in October!

Travelzoo just sent my friend an email, so shy of $650 later all-in, we're both flying to Madrid (yes, Spain) from Orange County later this year. I can't even believe how cheap this fare was! It's the same from LAX, so if there are any west coast adventurers out there, I'd jump on this ASAP.

This was from the email she received:

Test-booking these fares showed the $300 price was widely
available for travel Aug. 17 through Oct. 22. Some Friday
and Saturday flights in August might be priced higher.

This is an unadvertised sale, and the fares could expire or
sell out at any time.

Forgot to mention that flights are on Delta and connect in Atlanta.

Yup, LOTS of city combinations and a sale which will not last long.

Kyliebaby3 Jun 9th, 2009 05:41 PM

Thanks! I'm pretty excited and can't believe that just happened in real life.

DanG!!!!I missed out on that one....great deal. I am in LA area too.

Kyliebaby3 Jun 9th, 2009 05:51 PM

Amsdon: Check Vayama. That's where the flight ended up coming from.

I think the prices are still available at the moment. Madrid is not the only cheap city, and some people are finding deals all the way until Christmas.

Not that I'm going to book anything else but out of curiosity, which other cities have people seen on sale? This is a great sale!

poutine Jun 9th, 2009 05:58 PM

Sadly I have forced my husband to book all 5 weeks of vacation already, so I cannot take advantage.

Go to Look at the section mileage runs, and the first or second post will be Dl: Jfk-mad $238 ai. Read this and a lot of city combinations are posted.

Actually, Delta has started pulling the fares apparently. That must mean it was a mistake of some sort.

Glad you got in on the deal!

Kyliebaby3 Jun 9th, 2009 06:15 PM

No way! I should run out and buy a lottery ticket :) I'm so glad I pulled the trigger, as they say. Yay for bargain shopping!

Well, I just plugged in LAX-MAD for Oct 5th, and it came back with multiple choices priced at around $320 r/t.

Kristina Jun 9th, 2009 07:41 PM

There are still tickets on Delta. I just bought LAX-Rome for $435 r/t in October. What a great deal!

raspberryberet Jun 9th, 2009 08:53 PM

We just booked, September 1-9 on Delta! There were several itineraries for $299, roundtrip from LA to Barcelona, taxes and fees INCLUDED.

This is, BY FAR, the best travel deal I've ever gotten. We wound up choosing an itinerary for $331.

Wooo hooo!

Thanks, TravelZoo!

Kyliebaby3 Jun 10th, 2009 06:22 AM

I agree! I've never seen anything like this. Certainly not from the west coast. Congrats to you both on getting great fares too! I was so excited last night, I could hardly sleep. Better learn though--Oct's still 4 months away!

amsdon Jun 10th, 2009 07:12 AM

Thanks for posting I sent the link to a friend who had not yet booked their air. I hope they get it!

I couldn't wait to come on to fodors to see a posting on this and join in on the celebration. I got the email and came home and went straight to the computer, booked LAX to Madrid for $299, incredible!! I felt like dancing in my living room..I've never gotten a deal this great.

I wish I had known that it applied to other cities as my destination for Sept is actually So I added a ryan air flight to Rome for $78.

I've never been to Madrid so I figured I would hang out there for a few days and then head to Rome. Congrats to Kylie and anyone else headed to Europe in the fall as a result of this excellent Delta deal.

I got SEA-MAD for Sept. 16-27 for $307 CAD, which is about $275 USD.

JenV Jun 10th, 2009 10:03 AM
