Fares begin as low as $59 and must be purchased before Nov. 15 for travel Nov. 14-Feb. 14, and though it ends on Valentine's Day the carrier gives up little love for the holidays as the exclusion dates include: Nov. 20 and 23, Nov. 26 -28, and Dec. 22 - Jan. 3.
Two weeks ago, I wrote about how it appears holiday travelers will be paying more for airline tickets this year as the carriers, facing surging fuel prices, have been boosting tickets prices in the wake of plans to make deeper cuts than usual for the holiday season to ensure fuller planes and higher fares.

$59: Baltimore, Buffalo, Norfolk, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh
