In the last week there have been some incredible fares to South America. Here are a few of the bargains we’ve seen (via The Flight Deal):
These Business Class fares are cheaper than coach (as of last night, there was still some availability)!
Here’s another great deal to South America: Dallas to Lima for about 50% off!
My brother-in-law’s folks live in Lima, so we’re always tracking fares to there from Dallas.
Los Angeles, New York, and Miami always get the big sales, but prices very seldom fluctuate from Dallas: Economy fares stay around $1,300 and Business Class holds steady at about $3,600.
We’re all excited that American will soon start direct service between Dallas/Ft.Worth and Lima, but we weren’t expecting to see any super discounts. If anything, we fully expected that the price would increase now that we have the convenience of a non-stop flight.
DFW/Lima is one of those perennial destinations that I follow with Kayak’s fare tracking feature. Yesterday I received an alert that the fares were about half of what they normally cost. Take a look at these fares:
Business Class: $1,353 round-trip
Economy Class: $703.64 round-trip
For Dallas, this is a crazy cheap fare!
From the fare rules:
RESERVATIONS FOR ALL SECTORS ARE REQUIRED AT LEAST 14 DAYS

VALID FOR TRAVEL COMMENCING ON/AFTER 01APR 13. TRAVEL ON
THIS FARE COMPONENT MUST COMMENCE BY MIDNIGHT ON 12JUN 13.

I looked at fares from some other markets and didn’t see anything that looked obviously inexpensive, but then I don’t really follow fares to Lima from many other cities. So I’m not sure if this sale is specific to Dallas. If you find a great deal to Lima from your city, let me know in the comments section.
