Spirit Airlines is cheap, but this is a new level for the ultra-low-cost carrier. It's understandable that the no-frills airline isn't for everyone, but if you prefer to fly nonstop there aren't very many alternatives on this popular route. Fly nonstop from Pittsburgh to Orlando for $43 roundtrip on Spirit Airlines for last-minute spring break travel through May. I even found this price available over a long weekend in March, departing Pittsburgh PIT on Friday, March 27, returning from Orlando MCO on Tuesday, March 31. Although this price only includes a small personal item, you can add a larger bag for $30-$42 each way and still pay less than you would on Southwest. Spirit has plenty of other routes with similar prices and some legacy carriers have started to match these super-low fares.
You don't need to fly a no-frills airline to fly for under $50. JetBlue lowered prices from Long Beach to San Francisco to just $25 one-way or $49 roundtrip for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, through mid-June. I found this price over Easter weekend, departing Long Beach LGB on Saturday, April 11, returning from San Francisco SFO on Tuesday, April 14.
There's still time to hit the slopes out west. Fly nonstop from Philadelphia to Denver for $97 roundtrip on American or United for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, through May. Baggage restrictions are more stringent on United, so American may be the better choice. Better yet, if you want to check any bags, it will be cheaper to fly Southwest for $108 roundtrip. I found this price available on American departing Philadelphia PHL on Wednesday, March 18, returning from Denver DEN on Wednesday, April 25.
Alaska Airlines has once again extended its "March-Forward" sale with even lower fares on cross-country routes for travel into June. Fly nonstop from Washington D.C. to Los Angles for $197 roundtrip on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. American and Delta are matching this price and it's also available for $99 one-way so you can mix and match airlines to fit your schedule. I found seats departing Washington DCA on Saturday, May 2, returning from Los Angeles LAX on Saturday, May 9.
Interjet has drastically lowered prices on flights to Mexico for last-minute spring break travel through April. Fly nonstop from Houston to Mexico City for $210 roundtrip. I found this price departing Houston IAH on Friday, March 20, returning from Mexico City on Saturday, March 28. Interjet's "ultra light" fare includes 2 full-size carry-on bags with a total weight limit of 22 lbs. Checked bag fees start at $30 each way. Enjoy ample legroom with a seat pitch similar to JetBlue.
South America is on sale with some fares as low as $166 roundtrip. For a little more, fly from New York to Medellin for $231 roundtrip on American Airlines. This fare is available from all 3 NYC airports as it requires a connection in Miami. Travel from late March through early June, and late August through September. I found availability departing New York LGA Friday, April 17, returning from Medellin MDE on Monday, April 27. Since Basic Economy is creeping its way into South America, this price only includes carry-on luggage. If you need to check bags, make sure to pay for the Main Cabin Economy fare or choose to fly Copa Airlines from JFK for $259 roundtrip, which includes one free checked bag.
Hawaii flights are crazy cheap from all over the U.S. Fly from Detroit Honolulu for $306 roundtrip on Delta. It's rare for Delta to have such a good deal from one of its major hub cities so book fast if you are a SkyTeam loyalist. Travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from late March through May. I found this price departing Detroit DTW on Thursday, April 23, returning from Honolulu HNL on Thursday, April 30.
Summer travel deals are rare and that's what makes this deal so good. Although peak summer travel in July is about $100 more, you can find some early August travel dates for nonstop flights from Chicago to Paris for $318 roundtrip. Travel on American, Air France, and United, from May through October, with departures to Europe Sundays through Wednesdays, returning from Europe Tuesdays through Fridays. A minimum stay of one week is required to obtain this price. For example, I found this price departing Chicago ORD on Sunday, August 9, returning from Paris CDG on Tuesday, August 18.
Fly from Boston to Oslo for $375 roundtrip on Icelandair. Why not make it a 2-for-1 and add a stop in Iceland for no extra airfare! Flying via Iceland is a great way to get to Europe and the added bonus of a free stopover makes this an excellent deal. Travel from April through June, with Sunday - Wednesday departures to Europe, returning from Europe Tuesday - Friday. I found this price departing Boston BOS on Monday, June 8, returning from Oslo OSL on Tuesday, June 16.
The best deal of the day is one we very rarely see. Fly from Dallas to Santiago, Chile for $386 roundtrip on Avianca. And it's not just Chile. Avianca flights are drastically reduced from Dallas to cities all over South America such as Bogota (BOG), Guayaquil (GYE), and Rio de Janeiro (GIG). Travel on a few scattered Sunday - Thursday travel dates in late March and April. I found seats departing Tuesday, April 21, returning from Santiago SCL on Tuesday, May 5. Use this flight as a jumping-off point to visit nearby Valparaiso or take a domestic flight down to Patagonia.
