JetBlue has launched an online sale featuring one-way fares from $39-$119, not including taxes and fees. The big deal is that this one extends into the heart of June and continues the wave of late spring-summer discounts kicked off a couple weeks ago by Southwest amid declines in air travel due to the sagging economy.
What kinds of deals are we talking about? Here are some samples: You can get to New York City for $39; $49 will get you to Washington, D.C.; $59 will get you to Raleigh, Charlotte or Pittsburgh; $87 to Chicago; $99 to Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Long Beach or Oakland; $109 to Denver; $119 to Vegas or San Diego; and $129 to Seattle.
To qualify you must book before Thursday April 7 and the terms require up to a 10-day advance purchase. In many cases, travel must take place April 29-June 17, and all trips must be completed by June 17. Your best shots for bargain fares are midweek, and blackout dates apply. Here is all the fine print.
