When JetBlue Airways offered a three-month pass for unlimited flying last year, it sold out quickly. The New York-based airline has yet to introduce the deal again this year. Instead, JetBlue last week announced a new deal called the Go Pack that lets passengers make 10 flights in three months, ranging in price from $700 to $2,500, depending on the city where the trips start. For example, a Go Pack from Long Beach costs $999 plus taxes and fees. Under the deal, passengers can take 10 flights between Long Beach and Las Vegas, San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento, Seattle and Portland, Ore. But the deal will only be offered until Sept.

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.

Winter airfare sales are such a distraction at this time of year. Aren't we all supposed to be holiday shopping? Nevermind. Check out what could be good savings on fares for winter or spring break. Would you believe $19 to Las Vegas? JetBlue Airways: Las Vegas is the sweet spot for this airfare sale. The airline's website said Tuesday that JetBlue will fly five flights daily between Long Beach and Las Vegas and, for a limited time, will charge just $19 plus tax each way. Last week, no-frills newcomer Allegiant Air promoted a $40.68 round-trip fare on the same route to celebrate its new service, which starts Dec. 15. It will be interesting to see how this Vegas airfare war plays out – hopefully with more low fares for fliers.
