San Juan is a market that consistently has excellent premium fares, so we quite often see excellent fares for travel from the west coast to San Juan, and vice versa. For example, right now the standard business class fare between Los Angeles and San Juan seems to be just over $700 roundtrip, or around $350 one-way. That’s an incredible deal, given that these fares typically include transcon flights, and then a connection to San Juan.
FlyerTalk member Aero137 notes that Delta has $365 one-way fares from Los Angeles to San Juan that route via New York on their “Delta One” service.
For travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout July and August this $365 one-way fare is available through New York (it’s available plenty of other dates for travel through Atlanta and other hubs).
That’s an amazing deal, especially when you consider that the Los Angeles to New York flight alone would typically cost nearly double that much, and that’s when it’s the lowest possible price — often it’s even triple as much.
American has similar fares, and while they don’t let you route through New York, you can route through Miami on their 777-300ER.
As a point of comparison, booking that Los Angeles to Miami flight alone would cost more than three times as much.
So regardless of which airline you’re loyal to, there are plenty of great premium fares to San Juan that are worth considering if you value premium cabin travel and want to earn miles.
Anyone plan on taking advantage of these great fares to/from San Juan?
