Who said airfare deals would peter out in 2011? I suppose they still might, but here's one I like from JetBlue that features good fares for spring from Long Beach. One-way fares start at $39 to Sacramento, San Francisco and Oakland, and $49 to Seattle -- but you must book by Tuesday night.
The deal: The So-Much-to-Love Sale also features one-way fares of $65 to Salt Lake City, $69 to Portland and $84 to Austin, Texas. One-way coast-to-coast hauls to New York City and Boston are set at $129 from Long Beach or Los Angeles International Airport. Prices do not include tax.
When: The offer is good for travel Tuesdays and Wednesdays from Feb. 15 to April 13; some blackout dates apply. Tickets must be purchased by 11:59 PST Tuesday, Feb. 8.
Tested: I checked JetBlue's website for travel March 22-29 and found availability from Long Beach to Seattle for $49 each way plus tax. Total cost with tax: $119 per person.
