Fly nonstop between the two biggest cities in the U.S. and the country's busiest air route – New York to Los Angeles and vice-versa for $237 roundtrip this December.

JetBlue is offering this deal for last minute travel starting as soon as next Thursday through December 18, 2018. Daily flights on this popular route are available in that window just after Thanksgiving but before peak Christmas travel where airlines struggle to fill seats. One-way tickets can be purchased for $119, with multiple flight times per day to choose from. The travel period is small, but the potential savings can be significant if you find the itinerary that works best for you.

As an example, I found seats departing JFK on Wednesday, December 12 and returning from LAX on Monday, December 17, 2018. If you are flexible with your travel days you can even stretch this fare out to a long weekend as Friday dates are still widely available, Sundays on the other hand not so much so look for return flights on Monday.

Speaking of weekend travel, make sure to have a look at our new and improved Weekender search tool to find the best flight deals from your city.
