Wow Air Sale: Our tests
So how do you find this deal? We did a quick search and found flights in February, March and April on select Tuesdays from both California cities to Stockholm and Copenhagen at the $69 rate. Flying on the weekend will dramatically increase the fare, from $219 and up (each way).
As always, the early bird gets the cheap seats. Snag these sale fares now before they’re all gone, Cheapos! Visit the airline’s official website to check prices.
The fine print
So what do you get for $69? This special fare is a bare-bones ticket. It will get you to Europe, but if you want an assigned seat, checked baggage, meals, or anything else, you’ll have to pony up some cash. Even with these extra charges, however, you can fly to Europe for a shockingly low ticket price.
