Airlines are rolling out excellent Black Friday airfare sales — here are a few that caught my eyes today. To get the deal you must book your trip today through Monday night. What’s most remarkable about this sale is the length of the travel period– basically the first half of next year.
Cathay Pacific: Cathay’s sale fares are probably the broadest offering with economy roundtrip fares ranging from $675 to $800 to cities throughout Asia, including India. Travel window is Feb 9- Apr 30– or Sept 1-Sept 30. US gateways are : Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. See sale fares here.
Singapore Airlines: Super-low fares to Frankfurt, Moscow, Seoul or Tokyo for trips January 10 – May 31. The sale includes both economy and business class fares. Some very good deals: SFO-Seoul or LAX-Tokyo for just $600 round trip in economy or $3,000 in business class. New York-Frankfurt is just $700 roundtrip in economy and $2,700 in business class. See the sale fares here. SIA is also offering great deals on its brand new premium economy seats, with fares ranging from $1,300 to $1,750 round trip.
Emirates: 2-for-1 roundtrip fares from its US gateways to Milan, Dubai and beyond. Travel window is wide- from Jan 9- May 6 2016. Best deals: New York-Milan for $1,1oo for two or $550 each. To Johannesburg for $1750 for two, or $875 each. Many more destinations included. See Emirates Black Friday sales
Some other good deals: Virgin America’s sale is good, too, and we found SFO-Hawaii fares as low as $418 round trip, plus most intra-California fares running less than $100 round trip. Transcons in the $320 roundtrip range. This sale is only in effect today, Friday Nov 27. Sale fares here. NOTE: This sale has expired, but keep an eye out for more discounts to Hawaii when Virgin debuts Maui flights in early December.
