Something good has happened from JetBlue buying Spirit airlines for $3.8 billion. No it’s not that someone is getting rich off this deal. It’s that other airlines are feeling the pressure to compete with what may very well become the nation’s fifth largest airline.
After Frontier airlines failed to complete a merger with Spirit airlines, they surely felt the pressure of being pushed out by larger airlines. So, Frontier announced a sale on one million tickets.
The airline announced Thursday, that one million seats will be on sale for a limited time, starting at $19. The promotion runs through August 1 and is valid for travel on select days of the week from Aug. 2 through Oct. 5. The airline added that the sale fares are valid for domestic, non-stop travel on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday through October 5th except as noted.
But here’s the kicker, there are some excluded cities to fly to and from on certain days of the week.
- Travel from Las Vegas, NV; Phoenix, AZ; Florida; Denver, CO; California; Myrtle Beach, SC; Savannah, GA; Nashville, TN; New Orleans, LA; is only valid Tuesday through Friday.
- Travel to Las Vegas, NV; Phoenix, AZ; Florida; Denver, CO; California; Myrtle Beach, SC; Charleston, SC; Savanna, GA; Nashville, TN; New Orleans, LA; Seattle, WA; and Portland, OR; is valid Sunday through Wednesday.
This can be a little tricky for Denverites, but not entirely impossible. I guess we just need to be savvy and adjust our days accordingly. So if you are flexible, check out the sales going on. They are sure to be bought up fast!
