The Flight Deal is reporting on a fare from New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Miami to Dusseldorf from $351 roundtrip.
I’m seeing many of these trips come up at $399 which is still an incredible deal. For example,
This is a base fare of $24.50 each way.
The fares I’m seeing allow travel Sunday through Wednesday in each direction, require a Saturday night stay, and are available for outbound travel September 12 through December 6 — though The Flight Deal indicates that they should be available through early April.
Delta SkyMiles would only award a non-elite member with 1249 redeemable miles for this roundtrip (5 points per dollar on base fare and surcharges). Much better to credit to Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan where you’ll earn 50% of the miles flown (or about 5250 miles).
From Dusseldorf travel around Germany, or get out to the rest of Europe.
