Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of the Department of Transportation's rules on cancellations within 24 hours of booking if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Royal Jordanian is running a 40% off promotion for flights from February 1 through March 24. The deal is only available today, January 1, and it seems to end at midnight in Jordan (5pm EST/2pm PST). That means we have just a few hours left to take advantage of this deal. Flights must be booked through the Royal Jordanian website in order to get these prices, so skip searching on Google Flights or your online travel agency (OTA) of choice.
Note that earlier today, the RJ website was throwing errors when trying to book flights. However, I'm now successfully able to search and select flights via Chrome's incognito mode.
