Baggage Allowance

You get a free carry on item up to 18 lbs and one free checked bag up to 51 pounds included in the ticket price.

Best Way to Buy the Ticket

Your top choice should be the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Citi Prestige® Card, since they come with a $300 Travel Credit (Sapphire Reserve) or $250 Air Travel Credit (Citi Prestige) every calendar year that will cover this ticket. If you haven’t used the credit yet, buy this fare with either your Sapphire Reserve or Prestige, and you will receive an offsetting credit on your next statement: a totally free trip to Europe!

Even if you’ve already used your $300 or $250 credit for this year, both cards offers 3x on all airfare purchases.

See Scott’s full breakdown of the Citi Prestige Card which explains its many benefits like the annual $250 Air Travel Credit, 40,000 point sign up bonus, access to Priority Pass lounges, and 3x points per dollar on air travel and hotels.

See Scott’s review of the Chase Sapphire Reserve and read about why it’s the best travel credit card ever to hit the market (hint: it comes with 100,000 Ultimate Rewards).
