Today's Top 10 Airfare Deals
These deals are all at prices below what we normally see. Some of these fares are a part of ongoing sales and some are unadvertised, which may only last a few hours. If you are interested in any of these fares, we recommend you book soon to avoid a missed bargain. All domestic fares work in the reverse direction as well.
Frontier is having another buck sale with $20 one-way fares. Here's a new route that hasn't dropped this low in the past. Fly nonstop from Cleveland to West Palm Beach for $39 roundtrip. Travel on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, from January through mid-March. This price only includes a small personal item. A checked bag costs $30 each way. If you just want to bring a larger carry-on bag, it'll cost $35 each way. I found seats departing Cleveland CLE on Sunday, January 27, returning from West Palm Beach PBI on Thursday, January 31.
The latest Alaska Airlines sale has some great prices for winter travel. Fly nonstop from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for $77 roundtrip. American and Delta are also matching this price so you'll have many options to choose from on this popular route. Travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, from January through early March. I found seats departing Los Angeles LAX on Saturday, January 19, returning from Las Vegas LAS on Tuesday, January 22.
Go check out the Big Easy before the holidays! Fly nonstop from New York to New Orleans for $143 roundtrip on JetBlue. This price is available on just a few dates in December. I was able to find seats departing New York JFK on Friday, December 14, returning from New Orleans MSY on Monday, December 17. Perfect for a last-minute weekend getaway.
Here's another excellent fare on JetBlue. Fly nonstop across the country from Boston to Los Angeles for $197 roundtrip. This price is also available on American and Alaska as a Basic Economy fare. JetBlue has not begun selling Basic Economy yet, so if you want to choose your seat and have the ability to change your ticket, go with JetBlue. I found seats departing Boston BOS on Saturday, January 19, returning from Los Angeles LAX on Saturday, January 26. Other dates are available for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, from January through early March.
Fly from Miami to Cali, Colombia for $252 roundtrip on Avianca. Travel is widely available from late January through May. I found seats departing Miami MIA on Saturday, March 16, returning from Cali CLO on Saturday, March 23. Once you're in Cali, check out one of South America's hidden gems in San Cipriano, where you can ride a makeshift motorbike train car into the jungle.
Fly from Atlanta to Grand Cayman for $314 roundtrip on JetBlue or Southwest. This route has dropped recently thanks to relatively new service on both of these airlines. It's pretty easy to find this price for travel dates between January and March. On Southwest, this fare is available for travel through July. I found seats departing Atlanta ATL on Friday, February 1, returning from Grand Cayman GCM on Saturday, February 9.
Another great fare from the Alaska Airlines sale, fly nonstop from Portland to Maui for $337 roundtrip. Hawaiian Airlines is also matching this price. Travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from January through early March. I found seats departing Portland PDX on Thursday, February 6, returning from Maui OGG on Thursday, February 13.
Fly from Minneapolis to Oslo for $339 roundtrip on Icelandair. This price is only available on a few scattered departure dates in May. There is more availability on the return flight through mid-June. Combine this with a free stopover in Iceland if you want to make it a 2-for-1 trip. I found seats departing Minneapolis MSP on Saturday, May 4, returning from Oslo OSL on Sunday, May 12. This Economy Light fare only includes carry-on bags, but it does include seat selection. If you need to check a bag, you'll want to pay for the Economy Standard fare, which is $100 more roundtrip and includes one checked bag.
Fly from St. Louis to London for $494 roundtrip on Air Canada/United. Travel on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from mid-April through mid-June. You must stay in London at least one week to get this price. I found seats departing St. Louis STL on Sunday, May 19, returning from London LHR on Sunday, May 26. As is normal with airfares to Europe now, this Economy Basic fare only includes carry-on bags. A checked bag will cost $60 each way.
Fly from San Francisco to Dubai for $685 roundtrip on Lufthansa. Enjoy one of the world's best airlines on this long-haul flight. There are only a few scattered travel dates with decent connections for travel between mid-January and mid-June. You'll find lower fares with more availability, but watch out for overnight layovers or multiple stops on the lower fares. I found this price available for a one-stop easy connection departing San Francisco SFO on Tuesday, January 22, returning from Dubai DXB on Tuesday, January 29.
