Between New York and New Orleans
There’s a 7-day advance purchase requirement, and blackout dates around the holidays. But I was able to find lots of seats for sale!
This is a great opportunity to visit another city for under ~$200! And New Orleans is warmer than New York in the winter!
Between Chicago and San Diego
United Airlines also has cheap direct tickets between Chicago and San Diego for only ~$80 round-trip. That’s a terrific deal!
Availability on this route is very limited. Travel from late January to early February 2016 on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday, and be sure to buy your ticket at least 21 days in advance.
It sounds like a lot of conditions to meet, but I was able to easily find lots of seats still left.
This is perfect – and cheap – for folks in Chicago to warm-up this winter! Or for folks in San Diego to see first-hand why they call it the “Windy City!” 😉
