Has Casablanca been on your mind? We hope so, because this incredible deal from Oneworld includes the ability to fly from the West Coast all the way to Morocco for under $500 — let’s take a look at the details.

Fare Deal — Details

These flights are courtesy of multiple Oneworld carriers. Depending on where you’re flying from (and when), these flights will be operated by American, British Airways, or Iberia.

Keep in mind that these fares are in basic economy, which means you’ll need to pay for a checked bag but can bring a carry-on for free.

  • Class: Basic economy
  • Routes: Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), Dallas (DFW), San Diego (SAN), and Portland (PDX) to Marrakech (RAK)
  • Dates: April to May 2024, September 2024 to January 2025
  • Rates: From $486

You’ll find a variety of rates for these flights, including the option to book one-stop routings with short layovers for slightly more. However, the cheapest fares you’ll find take off from Los Angeles (LAX).

You’ll even find discounted flights in historically expensive markets such as San Diego (SAN) or Seattle (SEA).

Best Ways to Book

You’ll be able to book these flights directly with American, Iberia, or British Airways at the lowest rates. This is great news for those looking to earn elite status, since Oneworld airlines grant elite credit based on the airline you book with, not who you actually fly. (Star Alliance is the opposite).

For example, if you’re trying to earn elite status with Alaska Airlines, you may want to book through American Airlines rather than British Airways. This is because many economy fare classes with American credit to Alaska Airlines at a 100% rate. In contrast, only 3 fare classes booked with British Airways earn 100% credit on Alaska.

Since you’re booking directly with the airline, consider using  The Platinum Card® from American Express, to pay, since it earns 5x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with the airline or through (capped at $500,000 spent in purchases per calendar year, then 1x points).

Final Thoughts

We’ve found excellent rates on flights from the West Coast to Morocco, which is fairly uncommon. If you’re trying to earn elite status — and don’t mind flying in economy — now’s the time to book!
