We are in the swing of looking into flight options for our Spring trip next year (yes we plan way in advance due to work and other commitments), which is shaping up to look like a whirlwind tour of Spain (more to come on that in the next few months!). And in the process of finding flights, I realized that I’ve never done a post on the cheapest flight options to get to Europe from the US, and more specifically, from the West Coast of the USA. So here today are some of my go-to airline options to get to Europe cheaply and directly from my side of the world, as I much prefer non-stops straight to Europe rather than stopping somewhere in between. Some of these I’ve flown, others I’m flying this year and others I’ve heard a lot about. Each option offers different pros and cons, but all are great options to get from the West Coast of the States to major European hubs on a budget.
(Note: Of course the cheapest deals on all these airlines will be found in the off-season, so high season might change each of the following observations.)
