If you haven’t booked your holiday travel yet, consider this your chance to travel in the front of the plane. Virgin America is offering 50% off all Main Cabin Select (premium economy) and First Class tickets for travel between December 19 and January 2.
Given that fares of any sort tend to increase dramatically the closer you are to departure, you may find that this is as cheap or comparable to buying a regular economy class ticket. Check out this sample itinerary I just looked up from Seattle to San Francisco over the Christmas holiday, when first class is actually cheaper.
Book your flight using code MERRY50 and before December 14 to take advantage of this offer. Full Terms and Conditions are below:
