Q. There was a time when you could buy a ticket and it was good for several months to a year. Are those available anymore? Also AirTran use to have a promo…buy 6 tickets, get one free trip. I assume this went out the window as well?
A. The only fares I know like that are fully refundable ones which tend to be the most expensive. And even those aren't entirely free of restrictions.
As for Airtran, they still offer a free roundtrip after 3 business class or four economy class roundtrips.
