SAS is currently selling cheap tickets from Brussels to Chicago for this winter. These tickets merely cost €308. If you want to fly even further to a warmer state, you can also fly to Los Angeles, California for €356. Flying with luggage, however, increases the price by roughly €110, which is no longer a very attractive price.
Should you not be able to fly (or not want to fly) later on, you can cancel the flights and get a voucher from SAS worth the amount of money that you spent.
Our calendar displays all available dates. You can either get the cheapest price by booking through an OTA or book directly on SAS’ website for roughly €30 more.
No matter which destination you choose, you would always have one layover in Copenhagen. The flights to Chicago are operated using an Airbus A330, while the flights to Los Angeles use an Airbus A350.
Search & Book
This fare can be booked for flights without a specific travel period. The fare has no expiration date and can thus be withdrawn anytime. The minimum stay requirement is 6 days or one Sunday. Stopovers are not permitted.
Google Flights shows that these flights are available from January until March, as does our own calendar above. You can either find the cheapest price on our Travel-Dealz flight search or pay roughly €30 more to book on SAS’ website.
If you fly without luggage, the tickets will be issued in booking class T, while the fare that includes luggage bumps the booking class up to L. Both give the exact same number of miles, though. Here’s an example for what flying to Chicago (and back) without luggage would get you:
- 9,454 Miles on Air India Flying Returns
- 4,730 Award Miles + 784 PQP on United MileagePlus
- 2,380 Miles on Miles&More
- 2,130 Miles on Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
- 600 Points on SAS EuroBonus
- 470 Miles on Etihad Guest

Information & Tips for USA
The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.
Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements
The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA) for about €12, you don’t need a visa for entry.
The Best Time to Visit
Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.
The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
