The SIX Airline Sales & Deals Going On RIGHT NOW! And A Sweepstakes To Win A Trip To Hawaii Or Boston, Too!

by SharonKurheg

Seeing sales from three different airline is old hat nowadays and it’s pretty easy to find four at the same time, too. Five sales just never seen to happen, so you’d think that six sales, all at once, would be impossible.

Think again. It’s happening. Six.

We’re talking once in a blue moon material here. And one of the airlines has a sweepstakes happening right now, too!

So without further ado, here they all are…

Alaska Air

Alaska Airlines Plane

Alaska Air has a 24-hour flash sale going on that ends at 11:59pm PT tonight (April 9, 2019). They have one-way deals from over 70 cities….we’re talking prices like:

  • PAE to PDX for $29 Saver Fare (which is more restrictive) or $39 Main Fare (which gives more options and flexibility)
  • SLC to SAN for $49 Saver, $179 Main
  • LAX to PAE for $79 Saver, $99 Main
  • SFO to JGK for $119 Saver, $149 Main
  • SEA to PIT for $149 Saver, $179 Main

Travel is valid Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from April 30th to June 14th. 21-day advanced purchase is required (which, yeah…today is April 9th, the sale ends April 9th, and eligible flights are from April 30th onward. Yep…21 days!)

Go to this page of Alaska Airlines’ website for flights, and Terms & Conditions. Better be quick though – remember, this one ends tonight at 11:59pm PT.

Frontier Airlines

April 9th is National Unicorn Day….who knew? Well, Frontier Airlines apparently knew because they’re celebrating it with some “magical” sales. For example, they currently have one-way non-stop flights starting as low as $20! (that would be between TPA and CLT) If you’re interested in flying between ATL and MCO or SRQ, or BKG and DFW or DEN and DTW, ICT, MCI or OMA, those are just $25! And the low prices go on and on.

Air fare must be purchased by April 11, 2019 and flights can only be Monday through Saturday. 7-day advanced purchase is required.

Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines has full vacation deals for your visit to Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and other cities, and it looks like you can potentially save up to 33% off your vacation.

Here are some examples for Oahu:

“Embrace Spring with a charmingly low fare.”

JetBlue has a bunch of great prices on flights, starting at just $49. They don’t have sale prices posted…you have to search for them, based on your departure and arrival locations, and date. But you can still snag some decent prices. Here’s what’s available between MCO and SMF in June, for example:

Look for flights between LGA and ORD in May, and you find this:

Southwest is in the final days of its sale that started last week:


Because obscure holidays should be celebrated too, Southwest is holding The Obscure Holiday Sale. Ticket prices for one-way, non-stop travel start at just $59 one way (although I found some prices that are even cheaper) and you need to purchase by April 11, 2019 to get in on the sale.

And about that sweepstakes…

That’s courtesy of Hawaiian Airlines. It’s called the Which Shore Should You Explore? Sweepstakes and it’s in celebration of the launch of their five-times weekly non-stop service between Boston and Honolulu.

Surprise surprise surprise, No DL sale, no AA sale, No UA sale. What was it they told us when they let them merge with Continental, Northwest and US Air? Did they say something about competition? I think they were telling us fibs? Is that possible they are liars? What say you?

I’m sure you mean the “What says you?” hypothetically speaking, but since you asked…;-)

I check out the “big 3” on a twice-weekly basis to see what they have in terms of sales. And you’re right…they never (or very, very rarely) have big flash sales like the lower cost airlines do. However they do tend to have ongoing deals that the lower cost airlines rarely have. The big airlines also have big credit card deals that allow people to earn larger sums of frequent flyer miles. So in the end, to an extent, it evens out.
