You know what? Your romanticized trip to Paris doesn't have to remain a vision in your dreams if money is your worry. Right now, you can fly to the City of Light for about $400. But be warned: Parisians don't wear berets.
Norwegian Airlines just announced that it's now flying nonstop to Paris from LA and NYC and inaugural fares start at $175 one way. Naturally, a return ticket is a little more, but the prices from either destination still come out to about $400 round trip. To be exact, a round trip from JFK to CDG comes just a hair below $400 at $395.30, while a round trip flight from LAX to CDG will cost you $421.30.
