I wanted to take a look and see how good this deal really was. I took a look at some sample dates and city pairs, and as long as they were selling seats on the flights, I was able to use this code. I was finding good availability from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico; Phoenix, Arizona; Tampa, Florida; Orlando, Florida; and Long Beach, California.
