Fly from Hartford to either Los Angeles or Las Vegas for $146 roundtrip on United Airlines.
Here's an amazing deal for cross-country flights, starting as early as this weekend through early January 2019. Flights are available daily and require no minimum stay. During the summer seats are available but are scarcer than flights from late August onward.
What makes this fare even better, is that it books into standard economy, not one of those restrictive Basic fares. So go ahead and pack along that normal sized carry-on.
As an example, I found seats departing BDL on Friday, August 17 and returning from LAX on Monday, August 20, 2018.
There are a lot of great flights today to Los Angeles (LAX) and Las Vegas (LAS) so make sure to have a peek at those.
