I rarely feature daily deals related posts, but this one caught my attention and is worth sharing. Virgin America has partnered with GILT City to provide special insider offers for the airline’s premium Main Cabin Select service. Recently, airlines have been jumping into the daily deals game, but this is the first time Virgin America, the airline putting style back in flying, has ever discounted this class of service. Score one for hip travelers.
Here’s how these airfare deals work:
Gilt City will be offering members the chance to purchase Virgin America flight packages in 3, 5 and 10 packs and will be available in numerous cities throughout the country and Mexico. They are available in short haul, medium and long haul packages. Since this launched, many of the packages from SEA have SOLD OUT and are on a waiting list, so I encourage you to act fast on deals in your city if you want to get in on this deal.
The Airfare Deals:
· 3 short-haul roundtrips (like SFO to SEA) for $427
· 3 medium-haul roundtrips (like DFW – LAX) for $964
