Looking to escape the cold this spring? United Airlines has launched a “under $70 to over 70ºF” sale with fares as low as $39 one-way.
From $39 One-Way: United Airlines Offers Hot Deals To Warm Destinations

Tip: if you see something that looks interesting, book it. Just yesterday I was looking at $57 one-way tickets between Washington and Los Angeles ($89 for regular economy class) and decided to wait a day. Bad move…the fares tripled overnight. You snooze, you loose…even in the pandemic era. Remember that you case use FareLock to hold a fare for up to seven days (usually under $20) and you always have 24-hours to cancel your ticket, even if booked less than a week before travel.
Also note that United is not the only carrier with a fare sale. JetBlue and American Airlines are going to war in Florida and Southwest Airlines is offering a number of $29 one-way fares.
Finally, be sure to note that United’s Basic Economy fares do not permit larger carry-on items onboard or complimentary advance seat assignments. In some cases, the difference in cost between basic economy and standard economy is less than $20.
I’m looking international for my own spring travels, but with many great fare sales and virus numbers dropping, it is a very cheap time to travel.
Are you taking advantage of the United fare sale?
Haha Matthew, I also looked a LAX-IAD run yesterday, ended up booking it though.
As of a few minutes ago I saw those fares again available, IAD-LAX (or vv) for $57 in basic econ and only $2 more on some days for regular econ.
