Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly. Since this deal requires booking directly with the airline, we recommend using American Express Platinum Card in order to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of the DOT’s 24-hour cancellation allowance if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
