Top days to fly for best deals

Posted: February 20th, 2014

The best days to fly can change from year to year. You need to take into consideration when the airlines lower or raise their prices, which destinations are the cheapest, and when, and what days are the best to buy considering when you want to fly.

If you’re flying from one coast to the other, you’ll save the most if you leave before June 7. Starting June 8, you’ll spend up to 15 percent more. Never fly coast-to-coast on a Sunday.

If you’re flying from New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles to London, do so by May 16. You’ll save over $400 or more.

If you don’t have to fly during the peak of summer, don’t: if you wait until August 23, the prices will drop down almost to those from before May 16. Then there will be another price drop around the middle of October.

An anti-union, ultra-cheap airline could change flying as we know it

Posted: February 18th, 2014

 

Norwegian Air Shuttle, which is the third-largest low-cost airline in Europe, has been offering extremely low-priced international routes for the past few months. The travel industry as a whole doesn’t like it much.

These flights, which connect the U.S. to Europe for under $500 round-trip, include all fees and taxes. Compared to prices of over $1000 for the same flights, travelers will be getting a great deal.

So far, Norwegian Air offers flights or is about to offer flights between European cities like Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, and Bergen and U.S. cities like Fort Lauderdale, Oakland, New York., and Los Angeles. This summer, the airline will add non-stop trips between New York, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale and London (Gatwick).

Southwest and JetBlue to offer cheap flights from Regan National Airport

Posted: February 10th, 2014

It hasn’t always been easy finding affordable flights from Reagan National Airport, but that may be about to change. JetBlue and Southwest Airlines may soon offer cheap flights from the airport.

JetBlue has received the rights to add 12 round-trip flights per day, bringing its total to 30 slots, and Southwest will add 27 daily flights, bringing its total to 44. This will make the popular yet previously expensive airport more affordable to fly out of for travelers.

Neither carrier has announced schedules or destinations. These changes are due to the merger between US Airways and American Airlines and the resulting Justice Department ruling that stated that American must give up a minimum of 104 slots at Reagan.

The Justice Department has yet to approve the proposed changes by JetBlue and Southwest.
