Wow Air to fly between L.A. and India starting at $199. Just watch out for those extra fees

Budget travelers may bite on the latest bargain fare between Los Angeles and New Delhi. Iceland-based Wow Air in December will begin flying to the Indian city from major U.S. hubs, including L.A. The initial ticket price: $199 each way.

Tickets are on sale now for flights that begin Dec. 5 and stop in Reykjav√≠k. I checked the airline’s website Tuesday and found the $199 fare from L.A. available Jan. 21. However, the cheapest return I could find for the week of Jan. 27 was $354 (I selected Jan. 30 to test this fare). Total round-trip airfare costs $554, including tax, one of the cheapest fares around.

But that price assumes you are bringing only a personal item on board, defined as something roughly 17-by-13-by-10 inches.
