When searching for fares based on this announcement [secretflying.com] regarding DFW, PHL, and MIA to Paris, I found that this sale seems to be rapidly expanding this evening, with deals from other US cities to other European cities as well. I found these via Google flights [google.com].

Generally available mid-September through April, 2017, not over December holidays, primarily on United and Delta and their associated partners. Fares are R/T and vary depending on travel dates. Some fares seem to be on certain days of the week only (e.g., Saturday outbound).

Some sample city pairings with the R/T fares that I found (use the Map view in Google flights [google.com] to see lots of destinations at one time)

DFW to:
  • London - $477
  • Paris - $481
  • Hamburg - $526
  • Copenhagen - $498
  • Geneva - $477
  • Zurich - $476
PHL to:
  • Many cities - $444 (Stockholm) and up (many in the $450-600 range)
MIA to:
  • London - $455
  • Stockholm - $428
  • Paris - $428
JFK to:
  • Paris - $490
  • Barcelona - $481
EWR/LGA/BOS:
  • Many cities in $500-$600 range
SEA to:
  • Paris - $611
  • Frankfurt - $610
  • Others
ORD (Chicago O'Hare) to:
  • London - $513
  • Frankfurt - $512
  • Rome - $515
  • Madrid / Barcelona - $500
  • Bucharest - $538
  • Warsaw - $521
  • Oslo - $512
MSP (Minneapolis/St. Paul) to:
  • Munich $575
  • Frankfurt $588
and others.

That, but mostly fare wars. AA / Delta / UA all attacking each others' hubs.

For example, United has Dallas-Paris for $500 RT while AA has Chicago-Paris for $500 RT

The reality is tourism is down in Europe. A lot of terror attacks and radical people blowing/shooting stuff up...westerners arent visiting. I wouldnt be surprised if these countries are subsidizing airfare just to get people to visit and spend money.

Tourism is down and the middle east carriers has added more fights to increase capacity.
Usually don't see air fare sales during the summer travel months.

UPDATE: I just figured out that using Momondo.com to search provides a broader range of options. Fares are cheaper, plus there is more date availability. For example, I bought DFW-Paris for around $400 starting on 9/7 (earliest at this far was 8/28), where Google Flights and united.com are at about $490 starting mid-September. Momondo.com transfers you to a third party site for the actual purchase (you can choose which one, many I've never heard of). Seems that only some of these third party sites have these fares; not sure why.

United is what I booked. Here's a sample Momondo search [momondo.com] for DFW-CDG from 8/28 to 9/21, yielding $413 R/T on United and Air Canada with a number of options. YMMV, as fares and availability could vanish at any time. I used the third party Fareboom, which was the lowest available when I searched, and it seemed to go through without a problem.

Also, these third party sites seem to have very tight cancellation policies - don't assume you have the typical 24-hour window to cancel your ticket as you do on the major airlines' sites as well as Orbitz, etc. You may have only a few hours, and they may still charge you a fee even if you are within that window. So, purchase only if you are confident that you want to lock yourself in.

I agree with your dates but I must say I also envy you because can't travel during those bargain days where there were fares for $400+ from Dallas due to the kiddo's school. Enjoy your trip and I am sure its a great time to visit the place during August/September timeframe. Thanks for sharing the deal with us as well.
