New Jet Blue Sale not stunning

Fares from Washington DC:

    JetBlue has announced yet another 4-day sale, suggesting that airline traffic must need a boost. One wonders how the spectre of $100 oil and a housing recession will affect airfare prices and airline profits.

    New York to Vegas and the West Coast is now $298 RT plus tax in this sale, a slight savings from previous levels, and hardly the lowest fares we've seen on these routes, but these are nonstop fares, so that's added value.

    East Coast to Florida starts at $59 each way (Newark to Ft. Lauderdale for example). Florida fares have the following restriction: requires a 7-day advance purchase. Travel must be completed by April 30, 2008. Travel to Florida is permitted Sunday through Wednesday. Travel from Florida is permitted Tuesday through Friday.

    New York JFK to Aruba nonstop is good at $139 each way plus tax. This fare requires a 7-day advance purchase. Tickets must be purchased on or before November 01, 2007. Travel must take place on or after December 01, 2007. Travel must be completed by January 30, 2008. Travel to Aruba must take place Monday through Wednesday. Travel from Aruba must take place Tuesday through Thursday.

    This sale ends on Nov. 1 midnight ET. And you still have until October 31 midnight ET to buy some of these fares for $30 less RT if you use your Amex card to buy them. Travel at this discount is only available, however, until Nov. 14.
