One of the great things about this deal is that you can fly almost anywhere in the US – there are even some routes to Hawaii. While there aren’t as many options on the West Coast, you can still fly to cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle.

Here are some highlights:

  • Southwest: Bradley International Airport (BDL) to Nashville International Airport (BNA), from $87.

  • Delta: MDW to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), from $138.

  • United: Denver International Airport (DEN) to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), from $169.

We recommend using Google Flights to determine the best dates and then booking your flights directly on the airline’s website; airlines are more reliable in case your flight is delayed, canceled or has a booking change.

For a Feb. 1 trip to Dallas, Google Flights shows an 8:40 PM JetBlue flight departing from JFK as the lowest fare. Delta and American also offer slightly more expensive flights to Dallas, both priced at $146.

If you decide to return to New York a week later, this 6:35 a.m. JetBlue flight from Dallas keeps the same fare. While this round trip is early, the other options available push the round trip fare up to $217.


All rates in this range of discounts are for basic economy, which can be restrictive. For example, JetBlue’s Blue Basic option doesn’t let passengers bring carry-ons and only offers seat selection for an additional fee. Despite the limitations associated with the basic economy, it can be a good option for shorter flights (a flight from New York to Dallas takes between three and four hours).


Seats on a round-trip JetBlue flight between New York and Dallas can cost between $10 and $79; the more expensive seats offer more legroom and early access to overhead luggage space.
