Virgin America is running a 3-day sale on select routes with solid fares for this coming Fall, including SJC to LAX for $49 each way, LAX to LAS for $49 each way, and SFO to New York for $139 each way.
That SFO to New York price is a particularly excellent deal that comes out to only $278 roundtrip! Any West Coast to East Coast roundtrip flight that comes out to under $280 is always a winner. In my opinion, travel to my two favorite U.S. cities makes that an even sweeter deal.
Though these Fall travel dates do mean you need to be able to plan ahead and have some flexibility. Keep in mind these need to be booked by the end of May 9th.
The fine print:
- Main Cabin fares require travel between September 10, 2013 and November 20, 2013.
- Tickets must be purchased by 11:59pm CT on May 9, 2013.
- Lowest sale fares are available only on certain itineraries.
- Lowest sale fares are valid only for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
- 2013 blackout dates are: 11/8 and 11/11.
- Seats are limited, subject to availability, and may not be available on all flights. Flights may not operate daily.
- Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable
- See promotion page here for fares
And if planning for Fall is too far ahead, JetBlue is running a quick summer sale for travel in the next few weeks.
JetBlue is running a 2-day Flight Club sale on select routes for travel May 21st through June 19, 2013. Some decent flight sales running around the nation, including from the SF bay area to the East Coast. For example: San Jose, CA (SJC) to Boston, MA (BOS) for $169 each way and SJC to New York, NY (JFK) for $179 each way.
Not exactly the lowest prices we have seen, but pretty good for summer travel. (Prices are usually higher in the summer.) Also a good way to secure your TrueBlue Mosaic status if you still need it.
