American Airlines has dropped prices (some routes by quite a lot) for year-round travel on many routes from competitors hub cities. These fares are unadvertised and could disappear at anytime. Travel is valid any day/week with a 330-day travel period. Most routes are connecting flights and require a 30-day advance purchase, however, some nonstop routes require just a 14-day advance purchase.
We have even found some routes available for Tue/Wed/Sat travel during peak summer 2014 months, however, peak holiday travel is mostly higher. Have a look and see what you can find. Remember, these are unadvertised, and could sell out at any moment.
We've seen plenty of routes priced lower than the usual sale fares for fall travel between Oct. 28 - Nov. 25, 2013. This is an unadvertised sale and fares could be pulled at anytime. We initially saw these fares on Southwest, but other airlines have matched this sale on many routes across the country.
United Airlines has some really low unadvertised fares from their competitor's hub airports. Fares range from $122-$158 before tax and are valid for a 330-day travel period, 7 days a week. However, not every travel day will be available at these amazing fares and summer dates are extremely scarce or not available at all depending on the route. Nevertheless, you can get a great price if you buy now. These fares are unadvertised and will not last very long at all. They could be gone in just a few hours. Tickets require a 7-day advance purchase.
