Copenhagen on a Dreamliner


If just reading “Copenhagen” and “Dreamliner” isn’t enough to make your eyes bubble with joy and anticipation, maybe you don’t deserve this bargain!  Just kidding. Read on.

I can’t explain it, other than to say, these prices have been hanging around a couple weeks already. There’s so much turbulence in the US market right now that it’s left some routes open for fierce competition, in my opinion. And now that there are low-cost carriers (like WOW and Norwegian) flying in/out of some select US coastal cities (Seattle, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, New York) there are price wars.

But the prices are crazy. Cray-cray. $316 Canadian dollars to fly tax in, and return (in economy class) on a Dreamliner. I repeat…. 787 Dreamliner.

Sure, this particular bargain is out of Boston, Mass but surely you can get there. Enjoy a few days on the harbor eating lobster rolls and watching the Bruins or Red Sox. Surely, you can see how to make this a winning combination. is the quickest way to track down these bargains and see what’s out there. And right now, there are so many it’s a little overwhelming for this rabid traveller. I want to see Europe. This is THE year. But where to start?


From Montreal to Stockholm Sweden, with WOW Air

Montreal to Boston $148 tax in, return

I’m not even sure why this bargain is on my radar, other than I need something to look forward to and this outrageous bargain fits my Kraft Dinner budget right now.

The hot prices on this route are for October and November 2017. Travel on Tuesdays for the best price.

Boston is high on my list of cities I’d like to visit. I’d love to see it in the fall when the leaves are turning colours. I’d love to sit on a dock and eat a lobster roll and visit some of the diners featured on Diner’s Drive Ins and Dives.

You could also catch a game in Boston. Epic sports franchises in this city.

Typical price for this route is around $300. You can even fly from Winnipeg, quite often, at that $320 price point. But my thought is that you could build an epic fall trip around it. Whether you take the train and see Canada’s east coast, or just cash in some Air Miles for a weekend in Montreal before heading to Boston, you could definitely incorporate the bargain into something bigger.

Blue Jays in Boston under $800

What if I told you that you could catch a flight, from Winnipeg, to Boston and see a couple Blue Jays games when they are hosted by the Red Sox at Fenway Park?

What if I told you that if you stayed a short commute from downtown, in a really well rated hotel, that you could have 3 nights and flights for under $800?

Would you be interested?

Prices from on March 16th.

There is a little price war going on among the airlines right now on this route. You can fly from Winnipeg to Boston (YWG to BOS) as low as $326 taxes in and return. However, the flights that I like best seem to sit around $375 (which is still amazing! You can’t get to Vancouver for that!) Prices are lowest between April and late June.

Baseball teams often have a “home stand” which means that they are playing several games at home. If you choose the right dates, you could see the Red Sox play two or three different opponents.

Tickets are in addition to the above noted prices and can vary widely depending on where you like to sit in the park and where you purchase your tickets.


And, by the way, All Star tickets go on sale today. The big game is being played in San Diego this year at Petco Park, second week in July.

The last time I saw the Jays vs the Red Sox was May 2014, in Toronto
