These excellent fares aren't limited to major airports. We're seeing some especially great deals flying between secondary cities on both coasts. Flying from Sacramento to West Palm Beach may be quicker and cheaper overall than a flight from San Fran to Miami depending on exactly where you'd like to end up and/or your home location.
