USAirways: Newark To/From Los Angeles, San Diego, Or San Francisco For $108-$113.50 Each Way; A Refresher On Using ITA To Search For Flight Deals

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Bookable on Priceline. Priceline allows free cancellations until 11:30pm ET the day after purchase. Earn 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

USAirways has cheap coast to coast fares, as long as you don’t mind flying from or into Newark and making a connection.

The Newark-Los Angeles sale runs until the end of scheduling with 2014 dates running $108-$123.50 each way and 2015 dates running $127.45 each way.

Rather than post every possible sale date like I did for the recent $69 JetBlue sale let’s try teaching some folks how to fish.

1. Open up Google’s ITA Matrix.

2. Select “one-way” and select “see calendar of lowest fares,” as pictured below. Search from NYC which includes EWR, JFK, and LGA. Then select the starting date for it to search for cheap dates.

us

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Take a look at the calendar view to see which dates might work for you. The $108, $114, and $115 dates are the USAirways sale dates:

 

us1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Click on a date to view the flight details and compare the price to other options.  Based on this date you’ll save $91 each way per passenger by taking the USAirways connecting flight versus a nonstop option.  For a family of 6 that’s a savings of more than $1,000 round-trip:

 

us2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Do the same thing for the return, just reverse the routing from LAX to NYC to pull up the sale dates for the reverse direction:

us3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. ITA doesn’t sell tickets, so once you find cheap dates and flights just hop onto Priceline to book them. You’ll have until 11:30pm the following day to cancel free of charge if you decide to change your plans.

3 New Frontier Routes From Cleveland: $19 Intro Pricing!

Monday, June 16th, 2014

-Earn 3 points per dollar with AMEX Premier Rewards Gold, or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

————————————————————-

Frontier is going all-in on Cleveland.  It’s likely a battle they’ll win.  I fully expect more heavy United cuts in Cleveland.

Previously Frontier had nonstop service to Cancun, Denver, and Punta Cana. Since the United dehubbing they have nonstop service from CLE to Atlanta, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Orlando, Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, Seattle, Tampa, and Trenton.

Today they announced nonstop service between Cleveland and:
-Chicago/ORD beginning 10/01.
-New York/LGA beginning 10/26.
-Washington DC/IAD beginning 10/01.

The 3 new routes announced today are just $19 if purchased today. Travel is valid between the launch dates for each route and 12/12/14. 11/20-12/01 are blacked out. Seats are limited.
Sample dates:
CLE-IAD 10/22-10/29: $37.99
CLE-LGA 10/26-10/28: $37.99
CLE-ORD 10/20-10/23: $37.99

You can use these calendars to find low fares and purchase tickets:

If you have an Ink Plus, Ink Bold, or Ink Cash card you can earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points (transferable to several airlines and hotels) per dollar spent plus 1% cash back by buying Southwest gift cards at Staples and being registered for Visa Savings Edge.

———————————————————————-

Southwest Sale Linky

Southwest Route Map

As always you get 2 free checked bags if booked on Southwest.com.  Plus you can cancel revenue tickets with no charge and use the funds for a future flight.  Point reservations can be cancelled for free with the points redeposited.

If you have previously booked Southwest tickets with cash or points and the price has gone down be sure to call to get a refund for the difference!

When Southwest has a sale the points needed for a free flight also go on sale as Rapid Rewards is a revenue based program.  A one-way short-haul flight can be had for just 2,475 points-a value of 1.88 cents per point.  If you have an unlimited use companion pass thanks to opening 2 Southwest cards you would get a value of over 3.7 cents per point making a 50,000 point bonus worth over $1,850.

The Southwest Airlines Premier Visa gives 50,000 bonus points for spending $2,000.

You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points instantly to Southwest.

The network carriers are also matching these fares in case you care more about earning traditional airline miles than the free bags and cancellation policy. A United flight from Cleveland to Chicago has just dropped to $98 and similar drops can be found nationwide.

Fare rules:
-Book by 06/05.
-Travel between 08/25-12/17.
-Travel not valid on Fridays and Sundays.
-Seats are limited.

LAN: Los Angeles, Miami, Or NYC To Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil For $449 Round-Trip

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

 -Bookable on Orbitz. Orbitz tickets are refundable until 10pm CT the day after purchase. Priceline gives until 11:30pm ET the day after purchase. Earn 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

———————————————————-

Iguaçu Falls (also spelled Iguazú or Iguassu Falls) is one of the most stunning places I’ve ever been. I’ll let Google Images do the talking even though it’s so much more awe-inspiring in person than a picture can possibly do.

Eleanor Roosevelt had it right when she said “Poor Niagara” upon seeing it. Instead of being in middle of a concrete jungle it’s in middle of beautiful rainforest with wonderfully fresh air. It’s much bigger and grander than Niagara Falls.

You can see it up close and personal from the Argentine side and you can view the majesty of it from the Brazilian side. Both sides have their own airport, IGU on the Brazilian and IGR on the Argentine side.  Unfortunately both Argentina and Brazil charge a $160 reciprocity fee for Americans to visit, though the visas do last for a decade.

A ticket to either airport from the US is typically well over $1,000 but can be had now for just $500.  Miles can be credited to OneWorld airlines like American and British Airways.

It takes at least a full day on each side to explore. There is an SPG category 5 Sheraton in the Argentine side in the national park.

You can use 7,500 Avios to fly from IGR to Buenos Aires/AEP on LAN, 4,500 Avios to fly from IGU to Sao Paulo on TAM, or 7,500 Avios to fly from IGU to Rio de Janeiro on TAM.  Those tickets will likely need to be booked over the phone with British Airways. No fuel surcharges apply.

This fare is valid on select dates between September and December. This fare can’t be found on ITA.
Sample valid dates for JFK-IGU:
$449: 10/21-10/27
$514: 10/12-10/19, 10/19-10/26, 11/02-11/09, 11/09-11/16, 11/16-11/23.

You can use Orbitz +/-3 day flex search option to help find valid dates.

Wideroe Strikes Again: Cheap Tickets To/From Israel Are Back!

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Update 2: If you were ticketed and then got a cancellation notice you can file a complaint with the DoT here.

By law once a ticket is confirmed it must be honored. Be sure to give the DoT your ticket number, where/when you bought the ticket, and all relevant flight information.
—————————————————————————-
Update: A comment left from Norway, home of Wideroe, says there will be no joy in Mudville for most:

I am sorry to inform you that all further bookings will be cancelled. Those ticketed will be honored (very few) but US airways has been alerted and furthermore all US airways bookings done through our site will be stopped before ticketing.

Hans Petter Kaggerud
CCO Vice Director at Wideroe Internet AS

So if you actually got an eticket number then you’re good to go, otherwise, there’s always next time.
—————————————————————————-

Last year thousands of folks got to Israel on United for under $300 thanks to Wideroe. These tickets are on USAirways and they’re not quite that cheap, but there are still some great deals.

-Bookable on the Wideroe home page, just switch the currency to USD in the top-right. 

-Book with a card like Chase Sapphire Preferred that has no foreign transaction fees and bonus points for airfare!

Rent A Private Jet From Miami To Philadelphia Tomorrow For $1,073

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

JetSuite offers last-minute deals to rent out a private jet on the cheap.

Tomorrow they have a flight from Miami To Philadelphia that can leave between 11:45am-12:15pm. You can bring up to 6 passengers, so your cost per seat can be as low as $178. That’s far cheaper than flying commercial tomorrow nonstop for a way cooler experience.

WiFi and refreshments and free. A lap child under 2 is free.

The reason it’s so cheap is that they need to ferry the planes anyway for customers paying the big bucks so they offer deals that change daily based on where they need to ferry the planes.

Pretty sweet deal if you have to head up north anyway.

Other flight deals for tomorrow:
-Lebanon, NH-Teterboro, NJ: $536
-Augusta, GA-Teterboro, NJ: $1,073
-Orlando-Wilmington, DE: $1,073
-Palm Springs-Los Angeles: $536
-Las Vegas-S. Monica, CA: $536
-Las Vegas-Panama City, FL: $536
-Monterey, CA-Burbank, CA: $536
-Houston, TX-Santa Fe, NM: $536
-Carlsbad, CA-Las Vegas: $536
-Tucson, AZ-Scottsdale, AZ: $536
-S. Francisco-Scottsdale, AZ: $536
-Napa, CA-Oakland, CA: $536
-S. Monica, CA-San Jose, CA: $536
-Orange County, CA-Palm Springs: $536
-Orange County, CA-S. Jose, CA: $536
-Van Nuys, CA-Reno, NV: $536

If it says to wait to request that means someone else has it in their cart until the time expires as shown.  It will change to sold out if they actually book it.

Chicago-Tel Aviv: $506, Dallas-Tel Aviv: $538, Miami-Tel Aviv: $689

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Update 3: DEAD!

——————————————————————

Update 2: This can work from NYC as well.  Just book a one-way ticket nonstop flight to Chicago on American for 7,500 British Airways Avios.

For example a flight from Chicago to Tel Aviv for a long Pesach from 04/01-04/29 is $537 on Orbitz.
That flight goes from Chicago to Tel Aviv via Philadelphia. You can’t miss the Chicago to Philly outbound segment but you can fly Tel Aviva-Philadelphia nonstop and miss the Philadelphia to Chicago return segment. All bags must be claimed in Philly.

Or you can book a multi-city trip, just search for leg 1 from NYC to Chicago on 04/01, leg 2 from Chicago to Tel Aviv on 04/01 and leg 3 from Tel Aviv to Chicago on 04/29. The total will be $633.

Same story to go to Tel Aviv for Lag B’omer from 05/07 to 05/22.  Search for leg 1 from NYC to Chicago on 05/07, leg 2 from Chicago to Tel Aviv on 05/07 and leg 3 from Tel Aviv to Chicago on 05/22. The price will show $749 but drop to $633 after selecting flights.  Or just use 7,500 Avios to get to Chicago and book the $537 flight from Chicago (price drops only after selecting flights)

———————————————–

Update: This works from Chicago, Dallas, and Miami. Select an American flight and watch the price drop!

If you want a long Pesach trip you can go from 04/01-04/29 from Chicago for $537 or from Dallas or Miami for $641
———————————————–

Bookable on Orbitz. Orbitz tickets are refundable until 10pm CT the day after purchase.

I searched for a flight from Chicago to Tel Aviv from 03/16-03/24, 03/17-03/24, and from 03/18-03/24 and a flight sold by American and operated by USAirways came up from just $628.32.

However after selecting the flight the price drops to just $506.32!

Some other dates that I found insane deals on: 05/04-05/12 or 05/07-05/15: $537

Other dates like 05/04-05/22 or 05/07-05/22 (Lag B’omer) drop in price to $537 after selecting the flights.

More to come. Post a comment if you find other valid dates or departure cities!

I’m sure there are more valid dates and departure cities so start sleuthing!

Click multiple-destination and search for a flight from Newark to Tel Aviv on 02/24 or 02/25.
Click on the + sign just after the flight date to add another segment.
In the next segment search for a flight from Tel Aviv to Houston/IAH on 03/04, 03/05, 03/11, 03/12, or 03/13

The outbound flight is a regular nonstop from Newark to Tel Aviv.

The return flight is from Tel Aviv to Houston but notice that it connects in Newark. By law all checked baggage coming in on flights from abroad must be claimed at baggage claim and brought past customs officials before you can recheck them.

You can just take the tags off your bag in Newark and nobody is going to force you to fly to Houston.

This is called hidden city ticketing, and of course the airlines don’t love that. And airline reps will probably lie to you and say that your bags will go straight to Houston even though they will not. They will be tagged to Houston, but everyone has to pick them up in Newark.

They can decide not to give miles for your trip, though only USAirways has actually followed through with that threat. I don’t suggest anyone do this every month, but tons of people save money by buying tickets with hidden city ticketing every day without problems.

You can read this post for more on how to utilize hidden city ticketing.

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Update: Commenter Dov notes that you can actually get a BusinessFirst ticket to Israel for just $1,743 per passenger.  I have just tried it and it does ticket properly!  Ticketing took about 15 minutes.

To do that just search any of the valid Newark-Tel Aviv dates below and after selecting the flights click “reserve” as pictured below.

People often ask me to post business class airfares to Israel which can normally go for $4,000-$6,000 per passenger.  My response is usually to start building up miles.  For example 145,000 Starwood Starpoints transfer into 180,000 ANA miles which is enough for 2 business class ticket to Israel.

But for those looking for some paid ticket deals, United is offering United credit cardholders 20% off nearly all international business class fares when they book in multiples of 2 seats (so 4 passengers would also work but 3 would not work as well)

2 passengers can fly round-trip in BusinessFirst with lie-flat seating from Newark to Tel Aviv for just $4,742.64 ($2,371.32 per passenger):

Will you be booking at these rates? Do you think a night’s sleep on a lie-flat bed for a 10-12 hour flight is worth a $600 price premium each way?  Does adding in a transcon flight from LA change the math? Sound off in the comments!
