It stops at a number of major airports, like San Francisco, Orlando and London. They offer frequent specials, such as a round trip from New York to London, nonstop, starting at $518 or one from Oakland to Stockholm, round trip, starting at $488. Inter-Europe flights are also cheap, so traveling to multiple destinations within Europe doesn’t have to be expensive.
