30 Hours in Berlin with Sun Country

Remember Sun Country's (tel. 800/752-1218; www.suncountry.com) little one-off quickie deal to Paris back in February? Well, they're back with a similar offer, though this time it's 30 Hours in Berlin. Fly from Minneapolis to Berlin for $448 round-trip, including all taxes. As before, this flight is a one time only gig, good for travel from Monday, March 21 through Wednesday, March 23. Like their flights to London and Paris, flights will make a fuel stop in Gander, Newfoundland each way. So 1960s-glamorous!

I could always keep the hotel as a backup, but I just don't think I'll need it.

A: Read on.
