I’ve been watching fares from NYC to Lima Peru (LIM) for about a year as I wanted to visit over thanksgiving.
Travelzoo sent an alert this morning about fares for
$483 in jan / feb / mar / apr 2014.
After checking it out, these fares are also available in Nov and Dec (good for thanksgiving but not available for Christmas or New Years. So many dates available November 2013 to April 2014.
At this price, I except these to sell quickly. At least the preferred dates/holidays. Delta has a 24 hour cancel policy (can be cancelled online) so hurry up and book now, and cancel tomorrow if you have to if the schedule
I booked mine over the thanksgiving holiday.
