The Azerbaijani Manat (yeah, I’ve never heard of it either) lost one third of its value last week.

For whatever reason, Aeroflot is still pricing fares at the old value. If you have a no-foreign-transaction-fee credit card, that means you can save 33% on all Aeroflot tickets.

For instance, a roundtrip from New York to Paris from July 1st to 10th costs $1,025.

To get this deal, go to Aeroflot’s Russian site and search for flights in euros or dollars. Then on the results page, change the currency to Azerbaijani Manat.

All Aeroflot tickets should be a third cheaper using this method. I don’t know what fares are already cheap. Secret Flying points out this Tokyo to Istanbul roundtrip for $261 using this method, though I imagine that is of little use to most of us.

Hurry to book before this deal is shut down, but avoid making any plans beyond your flights for a few weeks until Aeroflot announces whether it will honor these mistake fares or not.
