"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YVR." - Chris Myden

Vancouver to Istanbul, Turkey - $676 roundtrip after taxes. Greece $729.

There's a very interesting unadvertised sale going on with Delta at the moment, to many cities in Europe that never usually go on sale.

The fares to Istanbul, Turkey (IST) stood out to me the most, because fares to Turkey tend to bottom out at about $1150 roundtrip after taxes. So this is a good 40%+ off the usual lowest price.


Here's an example search in November/December...

Something to note is that Delta's fares on Kayak appear to be coming up cheaper when you *don't* use the flexible date search, so pick specific dates.

I would focus on Mon/Tue/Wed flights, as they seem to be the cheapest. I'm not sure exactly how large a date range has been affected, but would start by focusing on November/December. They do seem to have dropped for early 2012 as well though.

Athens, Greece looks to be down to $727 roundtrip after taxes, which is again, about 40% cheaper than it ever normally gets to.

Tel Aviv, Israel is also down to $996, about 30% cheaper than it ever usually gets.

Something to note is that a lot of the flights from YVR are actually operated by KLM, which makes it an even better deal in my opinion. KLM is usually a bit nicer in economy class than Delta, slightly better food, service and seats.
