Very good prices and decent availability as of now. For a bit more you can also find good fares in February. Obviously not a deal for everyone since you will have to endure a long flight in Economy. But if that’s not an issue, then check out the dates and see if they work out for you. Don’t forget to use Amex Platinum (5x on airfare) or Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x on travel), Citi Prestige (3x on airfare) or any of the best credit cards for travel purchases.
