Wow Air is having a fare sale right now and there aren’t many seats available. They’re offering flights as low as $99 one-way to Iceland and $199 one-way to Europe.
These fares have been fairly typical for Wow Air from some of their East Coast cities but this is the inauguration of their LAX and SFO service.
I spent about 15 minutes performing various searches to see how many flights were available. The short answer is “not many”. And, where I did find availability, there weren’t many seats (5 or less in some cases as indicated on the website). Here are a few days where I found the cheapest fares:
Copenhagen had the most availability across a range of dates.
Some folks are scared of discount carriers like this. Up until my recent Norwegian Air flight to Martinique, I was in that club as well. But, it really wasn’t anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Keep in mind, Wow Air charges for plenty of “extra”, including things like checked and carry-on baggage as well as seat assignments. They’re pretty strict on some of those requirements from what I’ve heard. Still, it can be a really cheap way to get to Europe. Just make sure you add up the fees before buying so you know what you’re total ticket cost is.
