Sales and More Sales On Air Tickets
Direct Air: 50% off its flights to and from a number of secondary gateways.
And because those gateways are under-served the savings are particularly heartening, as they come with direct flights. As an example, the cheapest fare you'll get between Springfield (IL) and Myrtle Beach is $367 round-trip on Delta, for an itinerary that takes three flights EACH WAY. Do it with Direct Air and you may snag a $129 round-trip. Use the code YLXEM to get the savings.
JetBlue: Flights from $44 each way, and all the blue potato chips you can snarf.
Book by the end of the day tomorrow for travel between Oct 25 and Dec 15 (but not including the Thanksgiving holiday).
WestJet: Move quickly Canadians! This sale has to be booked today, but if you can make your plans that fast there are good discounts to be had on Monday through Wednesday (and Saturday) flights between a number of cities, including Calgary and Montreal ($318 round-trip). Fly through March 17 at the lower rates.
Southwest and AirTran: In lockstep, parent and child are offering a 72 hour sale which expires end of day on Thursday. Among the impressive discounts are Newark to Cleveland for $70 round-trip (on Southwest) and Columbus to Kansas City for $130 round-trip (on Air Tran).
Virgin America: Fly bathed in purple light to Palm Springs or Puerta Vallarta, the airlines latest two gateways. Fares are currently being discounted for both gateways for those who purchase before Oct 23, and fly between mid-December and mid-March (all details are on the site; in some cases, the discount only applies on certain days of the week).
That's all for today, folks!
