$480: New York to Barcelona

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Madrid-based Iberia Airlines, which is poised to merge with British Airways in 2010, has fares to a host of Spanish cities for under $600, including New York to Barcelona starting at $480 (after taxes and fees).

This is notable, because transatlantic flights for below $500 have been few and far between when compared to 2008 and 2009.

Since this is an unadvertised fare, we have no idea how long these fares will last.

Barcelona: Chocolate in the Morning

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

It’s a normal weekday here in Barcelona.  I walk the morning streets with a massive appetite for potatoes and eggs, but all I see is caffeine, nicotine and chocolate (“xocolata” in Catalan).  And, the sandwiches they call bocadillios. Since the bread is so fresh here, you can’t wrong.  So, my day starts with another bocadillo, pastry and cappuccino.

I learn later that a common breakfast here is some form of chocolate, washed down by a caffeinated beverage and topped off by cigarettes.

I see a teenager walking her leash-less dog with a pastry in one hand and burning heater in the other.  She takes a drag, a bite and then another drag.  If that’s her breakfast, then what’s the dog getting in his bowl? Oops, there it is.  Her dog makes a dropping and she doesn’t stop to clean it up.  Most dog owners don’t in l’Eixample.

45 minutes after my massive sugar and caffeine high I feel completely wiped out.

The heartiest and most nutritious meal of the day in Barcelona is not breakfast.

$209: Las Vegas to Spain

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Having just returned from an 11-day vacation in Japan thanks to this incredible deal on Singapore Airlines, I was floored when I saw that Delta had fares from Los Angeles to Barcelona (or Madrid) for only $299.

Even cheaper was Las Vegas to Barcelona (or Madrid) for only $209. This isn’t one-way, this is round-trip! This is lowest of the low, folks.

So, here I am, in a Kirin Beer hangover haze and sleep deprevation daze about to book Los Angeles to Barcelona for under $300 per person. Done! (See below)

We’re also seeing flights to Zurich, Venice, Rome, Geneva and Athens for under $400. Delta’s gone mad. Jump on these deals quickly, they may not last the night!
