This Weekend's Top Airfare Picks
Fares are subject to change at any time. If you are interested in any of these fares, we recommend you book soon to avoid a missed bargain. All domestic flights work in the reverse direction as well.
Fly from Phoenix to New Orleans for $138 roundtrip on American. Travel is available on scattered dates from August through early February, excluding peak holiday travel. I found this Basic Economy price available departing Phoenix on Friday, September 6, returning from New Orleans MSY on Tuesday, September 10. A Main Cabin Economy fare is $208.
Go check out the Panama Canal this summer! Fly nonstop from Orlando to Panama for $205 roundtrip on Copa. This price can be found on scattered travel dates from January through mid-December. You'll find similar fares on Spirit Airlines, but you'll end up paying more in bag fees. Copa Airlines is far superior and you'll even get a free checked bag. I found seats departing Orlando MCO on Thursday, July 18, returning from Panama PTY on Monday, July 22.
Get weird in Portland this fall with nonstop flights on JetBlue from Boston to Portland for $259 roundtrip. Travel dates are pretty easy to find in September. I found seats departing Boston BOS on Friday, September 13, returning from Portland PDX on Monday, September 16. Portland seems like a perfect place to spend a weekend over Friday the 13th!
Flights to Europe are incredibly cheap at the moment and here's a rare deal on a legacy carrier that does not require the usual one-week minimum stay. Take a short break across the pond with nonstop flights on United from Newark to Paris for $286 roundtrip. Travel dates are available from late October through early April. While you only need a 2-night minimum stay, you'll have to travel to Paris Sundays through Wednesdays and return from Paris Tuesdays through Fridays for this price. I found this price available over Thanksgiving departing Newark EWR on Tuesday, November 26, returning from Paris CDG on Friday, November 29. A checked bag costs $60 each way.
Southwest finally opened up its booking calendar for the holiday travel season through January 5, 2020. With the extension of the booking schedule, we're finally seeing some decent deals again on Southwest's new service to Hawaii. Fly nonstop from Oakland to Maui for $318 roundtrip for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, in November and December. I found seats departing Oakland OAK on Wednesday, November 20, returning from Maui OGG on Wednesday, November 27.
