Thomas Cook Airlines is spreading its wings.

The British airlines announced a new direct flight from Seattle to Manchester beginning May 27. The seasonal route, which runs through September 20, 2018, is in addition to the year-round, non-stop flight from Seattle to Frankfurt operated by sister carrier Condor Airlines.

“We are thrilled to welcome this new service from Thomas Cook Service,” said Port of Seattle Commission President Courtney Gregoire. “This demonstrates our growing significance as an international destination and creates new opportunities for our region’s travelers and businesses. Not to mention, the sports fans will now connect their love of the Seattle Sounders FC with one of the legendary UK football cities!”

The flight will leave Seattle at 4:25 p.m., arriving one day later in Manchester at 9:30 a.m., while the return flight will depart Manchester at 12:55 p.m. and arrives in Seattle at 2:25 p.m. Introductory fares from Seattle to Manchester in economy class start as low as $569.99. Passengers traveling on the new route will receive free checked baggage as well as complimentary meals prepared by U.K. celebrity chef, James Martin, and in-flight entertainment.

“We are pleased to continue to expand our operation in Seattle,” said Christoph Debus, chief airlines officer for Thomas Cook Group Airline. “The route provides Seattle and the northwest U.S. with even more options for affordable and convenient flights to Manchester, Northern England, and Continental Europe.”

Thomas Cook Group Airline, part of Thomas Cook Groupplc, is one of Europe’s leading leisure airlines, operating from the three source markets Germany, UK and the Nordic countries. The airline has received more than 60 awards in the past five years, showing the passion and customer focus of its colleagues around the world.

American Airlines Offering Roundtrip Fares as Low as $32

Published

Granted, there are very few people taking to the air these days in the wake of the devastating global spread of the coronavirus.

But American Airlines, for whatever reason, is offering one of those crazy once-in-a-lifetime deals.

As first reported by One Mile At A Time, American has a fare through the month of April where you can fly from Miami to Los Angeles for $16 each way.

Yep, that’s right – $32 roundtrip to go coast to coast.

No doubt it’s one of the most eye-catching, startling fares ever offered, even better than when some airlines run a buy one/get one special. Not that we didn’t believe One Mile At A Time, one of the most well-respected and well-read aviation blogs out there, but we had to see this for ourselves.

Sure enough, when TravelPulse checked it out on Sunday, the fare had increased.

By eight whole dollars.

Choosing random dates and leaving Miami International Airport for Los Angeles International on April 22 and returning April 29, the fare for basic economy was $40 roundtrip. Want a better seat? Main cabin fares were just $96 roundtrip. (Forget about first class. You didn’t think American was that generous, did you? Those fares were $854 roundtrip.)

For the month of May, again choosing random dates and leaving Miami on May 13 and returning May 20, we found basic economy roundtrip fares for $56 and main cabin for $121.

So who’s going to take a flyer on these fares while the virus is still raging?

Certainly, there will be some folks, especially those that might absolutely need to travel more immediately. Or, you might have the gamblers out there who will take the chance that the pandemic and the restrictions will come to an end sooner than later, making the purchase of a May flight seem like a steal.
