San Francisco to Paris for $350

OK, so while this is only about $30 less than a standard, introductory French Bee fare, we actually love this deal for the most obvious reason—Paris. This one kicked off at the start of November and runs through December 12, 2019, for travel between now and March 31, 2020. The fares are for Basic Economy class seats round trip from San Francisco (SFO) to Paris (ORY). 

The French low-cost carrier launched in 2017 and has been gradually expanding since then. This fall, it introduced new flights between New York and Paris (they will begin in June but are already bookable), which joined the airline’s existing service between Paris, San Francisco, Tahiti, Reunion Island, and Punta Cana.

The 10-hour SFO-ORY flight is available three times per week, and the Basic Economy fares include one 26-pound carry-on. So, pack light and Paris is yours for just shy of $350.
