Virgin America was named No. 1 domestic airline by Travel + Leisure in its 2017 World’s Best Awards for the 10th year in a row, and to celebrate its victory, the airline wants to reward their customers with what they’re calling a Decade of Awesome Sale.
Virgin was awarded high points according to the magazine, “for its comfortable leather seats, calming mood lighting, high-definition seatback entertainment, and healthy food.” JetBlue came in second, and Alaska Airlines, Virgin America’s new parent company, came in third.
Basically, Virgin is offering steeply discounted fares along popular routes and shorter-haul flights, with trips beginning as soon as July 25 and continuing through Nov. 8.
The cheapest ticket is a $79 one way from San Diego to San Francisco. My most frequently traveled leg, Los Angeles to Boston, has tickets as low as $158 each way, which is a real steal. I’m usually lucky if I can make that trip for under $500!
You’ll need to book your flight by 11:59 p.m. CT today, Tuesday, July 11, but being impulsive on a deal this good is usually worth it. And hey, you might as well take advantage of Virgin America’s high-quality services while you can — they’ll be retiring in 2019 and taking up the Alaska Airlines mantle.
