Like Alaska 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 here. Remember to book by 2/27 to take advantage of any fare deals!

You could get a roundtrip on Virgin America for the cost of a one-way segment on Alaska!


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!
