There are summer flights at Orbitz right now on United for between $500 and $600.  I found SFO-FRA in August for $505, about $60 more to CDG.  Get them now if you want them.

United flights.  Use the 30-day flexible date fare finder.

Thanks for posting, Russ.
I sure wish we could take advantage.
Hope someone else does!

Nice. $540 WAS FRA, July outbound, 2 week stay, also found with Orbitz flex search. ITA does not show them.

Thanks everyone!!! My boyfriend and I have been checking everyday for three weeks hoping to find a deal like this. What a great day!! I’m glad I checked the message board today. We got July 3 from STLFRA and back July 19 FRA-STL for $517 round trip.

We are looking forward to 16 days in Europe this summer.

Thanks!

Those fares are for real!
Cheaper in June/July than March!

Act quickly if you want them, they are only good through the end of today (Feb 5). Or at least thats the date given on the Washington DC – Paris CDG flight)

Fares are still there today for FRA in August – $505 for SFO-FRA, Aug 2-16, for example.  Astounding.

Now, if y’all’s appreciation is sincere, ain’t no harm in chippin’ in part of your savings for a ticket in my name[Wink].

I know, I thought this was a mistake as well.

From Rochester, NY (which usually tacks on around $150 to a flight from NYC or WAS) I am paying $584 including everything to fly to London Heathrow and back on August 14-28. I bought this ticket a couple of weeks ago and was shocked since other airlines were offering the typical $700-$900 price range.

I just love this forum! I was able to book TUS-CDR for $578 in May at www.united.com yesterday, they were offering the same fares for August and September. This will be my first trip to Europe where I’m actually flying out of Tucson and not Phoenix. I took a risk and bought it, and I’m glad I did, today’s rates are around $1,000.00. Thank you for the post Russ, I just need to figure out how I’ll ask for the time off at work [:@]

Way to go eklypze. 
That seems like a very good fare for May too, which has gone up substantiall in the last several times.  Actually, I’m assuming you mean CDG – Paris.  CDR is in Nebraska [:-].  Have a good trip.

You too hope.
