Looking for a reason to skip on over to Italy? Why not board one of the top business class products offered?
We’ve found some notable fares from several U.S. cities, mostly on the West Coast, to Rome Fiumicino Airport (FCO) for less than $2,500 round-trip, even during the holidays.
Let’s take a look at this impressive fare deal.
Fare Deal — Details
If there is a route you’re looking to book, you’ll want to act quickly. We don’t expect this pricing to last.
- Class: Business
- Routes: San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), Houston (IAH), Seattle (SEA), Las Vegas (LAS), Dallas (DFW), Chicago (ORD) to Rome (FCO)
- Dates: September 2023 – March 2024
- Rates: As low as $2,479 roundtrip
These flights are either going to be operated by Turkish Airlines or Condor (and Alaska). Turkish is renowned for its business class product, with an excellent hard product and a top-tier soft product.
The cheapest fares we found for this sale include flights from San Francisco (SFO) via Istanbul on Turkish Airlines.
If not on Turkish, you’ll be flying Condor, whose new business class product is making waves across the industry. You can fly Condor business class from Los Angeles (LAX) to Rome for as little as $2,584 round-trip.
Based out of the Pacific Northwest? We’re finding similar pricing out of Seattle (SEA) with Condor.
Best Ways To Book
Because this is a cash ticket, you’ll want to use a credit card that’ll maximize the points that you earn. If you’re booking via a third party, opt for cards such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which will earn you 3x Ultimate Rewards per $1 spent on all travel. We value Chase points at 2.0 cents each, meaning you’ll net a 6% return on all bookings when using this card.
If, instead, you opt to book directly with the airline, you’ll want to whip out a card like The Platinum Card® from American Express. This card earns 5x Membership Rewards per $1 spent on all tickets booked directly with the airline (up to $500,000 per year). We value Amex points at 2.2 cents each, meaning that if you used this card, you’d be getting an 11% return on your booking.Hot Tip: Trying to figure out when to plan your visit?
