Airfare sales for holiday travel

American, United start new round of discounts.

If you missed last week’s airfare sales, don’t despair.


American Airlines and United Airlines have launched some new sales, and some of their low-fare deals are even good around the holidays, Smarter Travel reports. Not only that, other carriers have matched the sale prices on some routes, with fares as low as $104 round-trip (plus taxes and fees). These fares can be booked through Nov. 12, or whenever the cheap seats are sold out. Fares are higher on the most popular travel dates, of course.


Whether there is a deal here for you depends on where you’re going.  For example, if you want to travel from Los Angeles to Phoenix for Thanksgiving, you can fly for $104 round-trip. There are also deals on travel to Europe and Asia.

Is this the lowest fares will go for the holidays? You can check Bing Travel’s Farecast predictions for your particular route. We’re getting quite close to Thanksgiving, but it’s always possible there will be some sort of sale on last-minute travel. And we’ve still got 53 days to Christmas. Anything can happen.
