Air Canada

Air Canada has extended their Black Friday sale and is offering the same 20% off discount on flights booked through end of day today, Dec. 2, 2019. This is for Economy Basic and Standard fares for travel between Jan. 6 and June 15, 2020.

TAP Air Portugal

TAP Air Portugal just came out with a coupon code offering 20% off all flights booked through Cyber Monday. This is for flights booked through Dec. 3, 2019 for travel Jan. 21 through May 31, 2020 (blackout dates apply: Feb. 20 through March 2 and March 26 through April 20). Use promotion code CYBER19.

TAP Air Portugal already offers extremely discounted flights between the US and many European cities, so this is a great way to get an even further discount. Additionally, you can many times add a stopover for up to 5 days in either Lisbon or Porto.

Spirit

Spirit just announced their Cyber Monday sale, which will give their $9 Fare Club members a huge leg up. With this particular sale, non-members will see fares at just $56.30 one-way, while $9 Fare Club members will be able to book those same flights at more than half off. There are a ton of routes offering these fares, although you’ll have to be flexible with your dates.

Avianca

Avianca is offering up to 40% off their flights with their Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials. Some great deals include Houston to San Salvador for $265 roundtrip and Miami to San Pedro Sula for $295 roundtrip. This sale goes through Cyber Monday, Dec. 2, 2019, for travel by May 31, 2020.

Just keep in mind though that TPG has an exclusive offer with LifeMiles (Avianca’s loyalty program) where you can purchase miles with a 150% bonus. Depending on your travel dates and award availability, you might actually mind purchasing miles to be a fantastic deal, especially since you can use them to fly on partner airlines.

Frontier Airlines

For Cyber Monday only, Frontier Airlines is offering 99% off flights on many routes for travel through March 5, 2020. Use coupon code CYBER.

This can also be used in conjunction with Frontier’s Kids Fly Free promotion. For every paid adult ticket, a child 15 years and younger can fly with you for free. This promotion goes through April as well, although there are some blackout dates (Nov. 21, 2019 – Dec. 2, 2019; Dec. 19, 2019 – Jan. 7, 2020; Jan. 16-21, 2020; Feb. 13, 2020 – Mar. 2, 2020). The promotion is also only valid on select routes and on Tuesday and Wednesday travel. Note: You must purchase a Discount Den membership.

Delta

Delta just launched discounted fares within the U.S. and internationally. For those looking to get out of the cold, we were able to spot Boston to Ft. Myers and New York to Sarasota for $137 roundtrip.

Alitalia

Alitalia is offering 25% off all flights originating in Europe for Economy Class, Premium Economy and Business Class travel. While this is a great offer, Alitalia is not making it easy as there are different promotion codes to use depending on where you are flying from. You’ll also need to book directly from the specific Alitalia URL (provided below).

This is for flights booked through Dec. 2, 2019 for travel Jan. 13 through March 31, 2020. Additionally, the coupon codes can only be used for reservations with 1 single adult passenger — multiple reservations needed for multiple passengers in the party.

Air Italy

Air Italy is offering 25% off select flights for travel Dec. 5, 2019 through Oct. 30, 2020. You’ll see the discounted fare when selecting your specific flight. We found flights as low as $428 for a nonstop New York (JFK) to Milan (MXP) route in Economy Light in May.  To take advantage of this offer, you must book before Dec. 3, 2019.

Finnair

Finnair’s Black Friday sale is continuing into Cyber Monday where travelers can book reduced fares from select destinations through end of day today, Dec. 2, 2019. We are seeing discounted economy class and business class fares as well as Finnair Holiday packages. Right now there are special deals to Los Angeles (LAX) from many Finnish cities from €499 ($550) round-trip as well as deals to Asia, the U.S. (it’s only €429 or $473 to New York), Europe or the Middle East. For business class fares, you can fly to the U.S. starting at €1,790 ($1,971).

Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines is offering Cyber Monday specials for reservations made through Dec. 3, 2019. Discounted fares include flights from Economy to Business class around the world, such as:

  • Economy flights starting at $499 round-trip from Los Angeles (LAX) to Tokyo (NRT) and San Francisco (SFO) to Hong Kong (HKG)
  • Premium Economy flights starting at $1,099 from New York (JFK) to Densapar-Bali (DSP), Bangkok (BKK) and Phuket (HKT)
  • Business class flights starting at $3,399 from Seattle to Singapore (SGP), Jakarta (CGK), Densapar-Bali (DSP), Manila (MNL), Kuala Lumpur (KUL), Bangkok (BKK) and Phuket (HKT)

Iberia

Iberia is welcoming travelers to join in on some big discounts to and from the U.S., Asia, Spain and other European countries with its “Color Friday” promotion. Deals are offered through Cyber Monday, Dec. 2, 2019, with travel through March 27, 2020. Some cheap fares include New York to Madrid from $272 round-trip and New York to Tel Aviv from $569 round-trip. Deals to and from other cities around Europe are also going for fairly low prices, with a trip from Porto (OPO) to Madrid (MAD) priced at $69.78 round-trip.

Icelandair

Icelandair is offering flights on sale from Seattle (SEA), Washington, DC (IAD), Boston (BOS) and New York (EWR and JFK). Since using points and miles to get to Iceland can be quite difficult, paying for your flight during a fare sale can be a great way to fly for less. Even if Iceland is not your destination, fare sales are available to all European destinations for travel by May 31, 2020.

Sample fare sales include: Boston (BOS) to Reykjavik (KEF) from $349, Washington DC to Dublin from $349 and Seattle to Helsinki (HEL) from $399. Icelandair Saga Premium seats are discounted too, but do not expect the same up in the front seat experience that you are used to for international flights.

Air New Zealand

If you were not able to grab Air New Zealand £1 roundtrip fares (plus taxes) between London and Los Angeles on Black Friday, you can still jump on their Cyber Monday sale. Although this time, the discounts are for flights between Los Angeles and New Zealand. Fares for economy class seats are as low as £299 ($330 USD), premium economy as low as £749 ($827 USD) and business premier as low as £2,199 ($2,428 USD).

Ryanair

Ryanair is offering many routes for just €9.99. If you are looking for a low cost carrier to hop around Europe, this is a great opportunity to travel for less.

Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines “Friday Flyday” sale is continuing into Cyber Monday. For flights booked through Dec. 3, 2019 for travel through May 6, 2020, you can fly roundtrip for as low as $599. Turkish Airlines runs flights from Atlanta, Boston, New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Washington DC to many destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia.

Southwest

Southwest has surprised us by announcing a Cyber Monday sale. This is similar to many of their normal weekly fare sales, but it is always a good opportunity to re-price flights any fares you already have booked in case any have decreased in price.

Hawaiian Airlines

If a trip to Hawaii is in your future and you missed Black Friday, Hawaiian Airlines also launched a Cyber Monday sale for select routes between the U.S. mainland and international.

There is also a neighbor island deal, for those looking to island hop throughout Hawaii. With this sale you can fly between many of the islands for as low as $39 one-way. These fares are available for reservations made through Dec. 2, 2019 for travel Jan. 20 through March 5, 2020 (limited to Monday – Thursday).

Just make sure to compare pricing against Southwest as they having been offering some incredibly low fare sales within Hawaii as well.

JetBlue

JetBlue is offering a two-day Cyber Monday sale for flights through Feb. 13, 2020 (blackout dates apply). We are seeing fares for as low as 1,900 JetBlue TrueBlue points one way and if you have the JetBlue Plus Credit card, you’ll receive another 10% rebate as an ongoing benefit of the card.

Although JetBlue just introduced its version of Basic Economy fares, some routes are still displaying the lowest fare at their Basic level, which means you can still book a seat ahead of time and change/cancel a flight if needed.

If you have booked a JetBlue flight in the past 5 days or you have JetBlue Mosaic status, now is a good time to see if your flight has decreased in price. If so, you should be able to re-price your flight as low as it was not a Basic Economy fare.

United

United skipped Black Friday this year and is just focusing on their Cyber Monday offers, and there are many of them:

25% off upgrades:

If you are currently booked in an Economy seat and you are looking to move up to Economy Plus, through Dec. 2, 2019, you can do so with a 25% off discount. Just enter promo code CYBER25 at checkout. Note: This is valid for travel on any flight on or after Dec. 9, 2019.

Discounted award flights:

For one day only, United has discounted their award flights to Europe and Asia. Pricing starts at just 30,000 miles roundtrip for travel Jan. 12 through March 29, 2020.

Although, the number of miles required for a free flight is directly tied to your United status. Those with no status at all will be looking at redeeming another 6,000 miles roundtrip for the exact same flight. Still a great deal, but one of the reasons why having status can be extremely valuable.

Cathay Pacific

Cyber Monday is here and Cathay Pacific is continuing to offer up to 70% off flights from many U.S. cities like Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK and EWR), San Francisco (SFO), Washington, DC (IAD), Chicago (ORD), Boston (BOS), Seattle (SEA) and Chicago (ORD) to amazing international destinations throughout Asia. Think: Bali, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore. This sale will run through Dec. 3, 2019 for travel Jan. 1 through May 15, 2020.

Some sample deals include:

  • $549 for San Francisco (SFO) and Hong Kong (HKG) and Los Angeles (LAX) to Bali (DSP) in economy
  • $555 for Los Angeles (LAX) to Bangkok (BKK) in economy
  • $651 for Boston (BOS) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) in economy
  • $1,291 for New York (EWR) to Hong Kong (HKG) in premium economy
  • $1,265 for Los Angeles (LAX) to Singapore (SIN) in premium economy

Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines is offering Cyber Monday fares starting at $29 each way, depending on route. Flights must be booked by Dec. 4 for travel on select dates from Jan. 7 – March 11, 2020.

Some sample deals include:

  • $89 for San Diego – Newark
  • $69 for San Diego – Oklahoma City
  • $29 for Los Angeles – San Jose
  • $79 for San Jose – Austin

If you purchase one of Alaska’s saver fares, just make sure you understand the restrictions.
