Like Southwest yesterday, Virgin American is getting in on the fare sale action with a sale of their own–but is it any good? Let’s take a look! You can also see all of the promotion details hereInvalid request error occurred.. Remember to book by 4/17 to take advantage of any fare deals!

  • Los Angeles – San Francisco ($59)
  • San Diego – San Francisco ($59)

That same flight on Alaska? 12,500 points each way for flights on Virgin America metal and 25,000 points each way (!!!) for flights on Delta metal:

Virgin Sale Example 2

You could get SEVEN roundtrips on Virgin America for the cost of a one-way segment on Delta! That’s insane!


In my mind, the best aspect of Virgin America sales are the low, low point redemptions. I’d make sure you check out their sale before you book on Alaska–they may have a comparable flight for a lot cheaper!

Let us know if you get a great deal (points or cash!) below!
