I book weekend trips away when I’m bored. Mainly because I refuse to pay something ridiculous and because I’d prefer not to fly anything but Delta or JetBlue. I like Delta for the wi-fi and I love JetBlue for, pretty much everything especially their lovely little Tuesday emails with weekly sales.
For instance, I am flying to New York today. I just checked the same flights for two weeks from now as I booked this trip about two weeks in advance. The total would be $242. Utilizing the email two weeks ago, I clicked through and examined the discounted fares. I picked my days and found a couple of the cheapest flights and made my decision. The flights were $85 each way, totaling $170. No questions asked, at about 30% off, I bought the flight.
