Thoughts, tips & reminders
While these are good fares I don’t consider them blockbuster deals, especially with the many restrictions and blackout dates to watch out for.
But if the routes and dates fit your plans then this is definitely a good opportunity to book.
Finally, note that other carriers often match these sales. So if you’d prefer another carrier be sure to check their prices too. (But keep in mind that most legacy carriers charge for checked bags. On JetBlue the first checked bag is free and on Southwest the first two are free.)
For example, JetBlue’s Philadelphia to Boston fare of $54:
Is the same on US Airways:
