It might seem like an error-fare, but this offer is for real: Oneworld carrier Iberia is selling tickets for flights from Barcelona to Boston for only 172€! It’s probably needless to say that this super cheap fare does not include any checked luggage. If you do want to bring a larger suitcase or bag, prices will climb up to around 260€. On the plus side: this Iberia offer is a direct flight, so you won’t have to worry about long layovers.
In case you have been wondering how Iberia manages to sell tickets at such a low price: it is the low-cost carrier LEVEL that is offering the fare from Barcelona to the United States. IAG is not only the owner of LEVEL but also of Iberia and British Airways. As a result tickets are sometimes sold through either of the airlines.
