Fare alert: Cheap flights to Russia!

Sharing this from TPG:

Delta and their SkyTeam partners are running some incredible fares to Russia - there are plenty of dates Baltimore to Moscow (via JFK) on Delta for $357.84 total roundtrip, including all taxes and fees! The trip nets 10,322 Medallion Qualifying Miles, or just about 3.5 cents a piece, which is definitely mileage run worthy. However, Russia does charge $170 in visa fees (you can pay companies like Allied Passport, who I’ve used in the past to save me time and frustration) around $45 to do the dirty work for you. Russia is also pretty expensive, but it could be a great way to burn some hotel points. 

Don't forget that Delta lets you cancel free of charge up to midnight the day after you purchase the ticket, so you can book this and then firm up your plans later.  If you're looking for some cheap travel during Easter break, this may be your chance.  I just did a test search in March, and was able to find a weekend fare 3/1-3/3 for $357.84.  Adding another night or two will bring up more options.

Happy Hunting!
