Let’s examine a round-trip journey from Boston to Amsterdam, leaving Nov. 6 and returning Nov. 13. If you filter to only SAS options on Google Flights, you can see the low fare calendar. These prices apply to economy tickets.


On the SAS website, you can see the prices for all the class levels on the same flights.


The economy fares apply to the SAS Go fares, while the premium economy ones apply to the SAS Plus fares.


The returning flights bring the total economy price to about $398 and the total premium economy price to $1,332. As you can see, the best flights for economy tickets might not be the best flights for premium economy tickets and vice versa.


A better flight option for a premium ticket would be this $818 option in January.


The most basic fare class, SAS Go, includes one personal item, one carry-on bag and meals. In the SAS Plus class, you can enjoy a three-course menu, footrests, wider seats, more legroom, free seat selection, lounge access and a free checked bag, among other perks. There are multiple levels within each fare class, and you can learn more about them here.

Bottom line

Escape to Europe sometime between this fall and next summer with these discounted flights from SAS. There are deals on both economy and premium economy seats (though the flights with the best economy options might not have the best premium options, and vice versa).
