Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Expedia’s courtesy 24 hour cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Great news if you're looking for a Central or South American getaway in business class: We are seeing deals to Mexico City, San Salvador and Bogota right now.
You don’t need any tricks to get these prices, just use Google Flights to set the dates you want, then book on Expedia or directly with the airline itself. Make sure to install the Legroom for Google Flights browser extension to easily see which options have angle-flat or lie-flat options.
