Latest Trend for Cheap Flights: Airfare Sale Extensions

March 30, 2010 | Posted in: Airfare News,Airline News,Delta,Pricing Activity

trend cheap flights airfare sale extensions

This week, we’re seeing something a little bit different in the course of airfare sales: instead of an airline inaugurating a brand new sale with accompanying media splash, a number of them are very quietly simply extending existing sales.

For example: American had a great U.S. cities sale that was supposed to have expired last week – now, it’s been extended through April 1.

Virgin America has extended its sale, not once but twice – and now you can take advantage of their specials that begin at $49+ one-way through April 5.

We’re seeing the same thing with Delta’s very good prices to Europe for travel in April, May and June (I only wish these fares were good for later in the summer, as well) – the sales been extended through April 5.

Be sure to keep up with our Deals Blog – and we’ll keep you up on these latest trends.

    Rick has given great tips on finding cheapest airfare on Tues, 3pm Eastern on domestic flights. What about international? I’m going to ULN, Mongolia late June and the price has rised $200-350 in a matter of 3 days (late March going into April) Does international flight have similar workings to get cheaper price? Or it’s generally the closer to the date of departure, the more expensive it’ll get?
    Would appreciate your feedback on this!

    Vivian,

    Unfortunately, airfare sales on international routes are not so predictable; and we are already seeing prices on flights to Europe firming up – as in, they’re moving higher. Last year, there were bargains galore – not so for travel this summer.

    But there likely will be a few good deals, and one of the best things you can do is sign up for our alerts – we tell you of any price-drops in real time – just use this link: http://www.farecompare.com/when-to-fly/twitter/ Don’t be fooled by the word “twitter” in the URL, you can sign up for email alerts at this link too. And I urge you to open/respond to any alerts promptly.

    In this environment, if you see a good deal, grab it.

    Hope this helps,
    Rick
