Update:   Flyertalk reports the deal is now dead.  Hope many of you were able to book tickets!  Remember to follow me on Facebook or Twitter for the quickest updates on mistake and low fares!

Via Flyertalk, you can book Business Class and First Class tickets from Europe (mostly UK airports) to the US for under $100 round-trip!  One-way tickets are also available for under $50!

The deal works on several airlines, including United Airlines, American Airlines, and US Airways.  The trick is changing the currency to Danish kroner to see the cheap pricing.

What might be difficult is finding a website that will allow you to ticket in Danish kroner with a US credit card.  The prices come up on sites like United.com, but you have to set your billing country to Denmark.

Set Your Billing Address to Denmark on United.com

Folks on Flyertalk report success on US airline websites with entering their US billing address, but leaving the country set to Denmark on the payment page.  Don’t forget to use a credit card that does NOT charge foreign transaction fees, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred.

Remember, if you book and change your mind, you’ll (usually) have 24 hours in which to cancel and receive a full refund.

And if don’t want to start your journey in Europe, you could always take a cheap award 1-way award flight to Europe, and book 1 of these mistake tickets on the return.

That said, even if you’re able to get the purchase to go through, there’s no guarantee these fares will be honored.  So do NOT book non-refundable hotels or activities until you know for certain that the deal will stick!

Bottom Line

There are mistake fares on several airlines on 1-way and round-trip tickets from Europe to the US.  You can get a round-trip First Class ticket for under $100!

You have to set your billing country to Denmark to get the cheap fares.  It might be tricky with a US credit card, but others have been able to do it.

Remember, you could book a 1-way award ticket to Europe and then book a mistake ticket on the return trip.  Just don’t make any non-refundable hotel bookings etc. until you know the fare will be honored.

This WILL NOT last!  Good luck!  And let me know if you get a deal!

  1. Didn’t work on united……:( card has an us billing address…” ! The selected flights fare could not be repriced in your new point of sale. We’ve changed your point of sale and started your flight search over so you can get fares applicable to your new point of sale.”….

  2. or may be it does 🙂 hope there would be no problem with those tickets. Thank you

  3. The only way to take advantage of this sale/mistake is to either to genuinely live in Denmark (with a real Denmark billing address) or to commit fraud. You clearly have to select Denmark for you billing address location on the search and billing page.

  4. Just booked a LHR to ATL first class one way for $200, fully refundable. We’ll see if they honor it.

  5. Looks like the deal is dead for anyone just reading. Website is now filtering Denmark to US page.

  6. Tried multiple websites and cards. None worked. It keeps going back to USD billing at 4-5K. Wish I knew friends in Denmark!

  7. It seems that they’ve fixed the problem on their end … womp womp.

  8. It’s done for United…they removed Denmark from the dropdown list of countries.

  9. United removed Denmark from the dropdown list of countries. Will not work anymore 🙁

  10. Besides United’s website, is there another website that we may use to buy the tickets? Those who know please list more than one website. Thanks!

  11. I was able to book 2 1-way from LHR-MHT for $113 total. I am able to load onto United app as well showing flight.

  12. So, the encouragement is to fraudulently declare your billing country as Denmark in order to get a cheap ticket on a corporate mistake. I’m all for grabbing a mistake fare when they’re out there, but I don’t want to throw ethics to the side to do so. I’m no better than the next person, just trying to be the voice of reason in our efforts to travel affordably. Surprised that this passed the “mother-in-law” test.

  13. I have a “confirmed reservation” on united, but was not able to purchase it online. I was thinking of doing western union, but 1. Has anyone have done it and have their tickets honored?

  14. United has announced they will NOT honor these fares, all the tickets are being cancelled.

  15. This is another case where we all have to ask ourselves where we will draw the line.

  16. daraius, were you able to book any of these mistake fares?
