Every Tuesday, we’ll feature the best travel bargain we’ve seen all week right here, on our blog. Be the first to find out which deals make the cut by subscribing to our blog (top right) or signing up for our weekly deals newsletter.
The Deal: JetBlue has slashed prices on select flights by as much as 40 percent. This extremely limited-time sale, which is only available through Thursday, offers competitive fares to destinations in the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean. Prices are especially low for flights to and from New York, Boston, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.
The Catch: This sale works best for fliers with flexible calendars, as travel dates are quite limited. You may fly through April, but various destination-specific day-of-week restrictions apply for select city pairs. For example, travel from Washington D.C. to Cancun is only valid on Saturdays.
The Competition: Southwest Airlines just announced a domestic systemwide fare sale, which includes thousands of reduced routes to cities across the U.S. Although most of JetBlue’s prices beat Southwest on matching routes, the latter airline’s sale offers a wider range of travel dates, plus more U.S. departure and destination cities (however, Southwest’s current sale does not include any international destinations).
