Last week Frontier went wild with its Penny fare sale and put over 300 routes on sale for just a couple of cents plus taxes/fees. This week, Frontier is having another widespread penny fare sale and is including winter travel dates. Fly nonstop from San Francisco to Austin for $29 roundtrip on select Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. I found this price departing San Francisco SFO on Friday, December 13, returning from Austin on Monday, December 16. This price only includes a small personal item. Add a larger bag for $30-$40 each way.
Fly nonstop from Newark to Ft. Myers for $97 roundtrip on JetBlue or United. You can thank Spirit Airlines for this great price on more traditional carriers. New service on Spirit Airlines begins this week and the other carriers are forced to compete. Although JetBlue introduced its Blue Basic Economy fare this week, I would still recommend choosing the NYC based carrier since it still includes a carry-on bag plus a personal item in its lowest fare. Both United and Spirit will only include a small personal item for the lowest-priced ticket.
I found flights on JetBlue departing Newark EWR on Saturday, December 7, returning from Ft. Myers RSW on Saturday, December 14. You'll find more scattered travel dates for travel through April, excluding peak holiday travel.
