Yes, you read the title correctly. At the moment, you can fly to Paris in September from New York (EWR) for just $99 USD! The airline offering these flights is Primera Air and there is availability on a number of different days in September at this ridiculous price.
If you’re travelling with hand luggage only and don’t mind where you sit or how hard the seat is and if you don’t mind buying food onboard, this is undoubtedly the cheapest way to fly transatlantic. You can find out more about flying Primera Air in our review.
All that said, Primera Air does not have the best reputation. This Telegraph article outlines that a number of flights have been cancelled over the summer, and that, in the case of a crisis, their customer service is appalling. Apparently there is a 2-hour phone wait to get through to customer services, at which point you get cut off and have to start the process again. Social media is also slamming this airline with a twitter “Donotflyprimera” campaign and nearly 800 complaints since July.
