Fly4Free is reporting on a fare of $338 roundtrip between New York or Philadelphia and Budapest, Hungary.
Travel is on SkyTeam airlines. I’m seeing mostly itineraries with Air France and KLM but some have Alitalia as well. Trips originating in Philadephia connect to Atlanta or New York JFK on Delta to start the international portion of the trip.

You can fly Sunday through Thursday in each direction, and the fare looks to be available for trips starting October 25 through December 15 and again December 24 through March 17. (You can fly back between December 15 and 24, you just can’t start your trip then.)
I’m actually seeing fares of $363 on most dates, rather than the $338 Fly4Free identifies.
And Philadelphia trips are usually a few dollars more.
I’m finding this incredible pricing using airfare metasearch site Momondo. Although rather than lesser-known booking engines, it’s seeing the trips on Expedia and on Air France’s website.
This fare isn’t likely to be around long, since I’m seeing it jump sometimes when clicking through to the booking site.
