Yes, most Angelenos drive to Vegas, but with the high price of gas and the low cost of these packages, flying might be a no-brainer -- and a spring break windfall. JetBlue Airways : The airline extended its one-day Madness-in-March sale that started Tuesday until tonight (Wednesday). As I was checking out the sale fares, I stumbled upon an incredible discounted Las Vegas package: $110 per person based on double occupancy from April 8 to 10 that includes two nights at Circus Circus and round-trip airfare from Long Beach.

One of the best fares: $29 one way, plus tax, from Los Angeles to Las Vegas . I went online and found an even lower fare, $19 each way, for a trip leaving Feb. 15 and returning Feb. 17. Total round-trip cost with tax and fees: $63.10.

I love introductory airfares that airlines offer when they start new service because they nearly always involve crazy low prices. Case in point: $149 each way from San Diego to Honolulu this winter after Alaska Airlines starts daily nonstop service in November. Need I say more? The deal : Alaska Airlines' Introducing San Diego to Honolulu fares start at $149 each way plus tax and fees. Yes, this airfare is super-low but my research shows that this price isn't available on all dates.
