Need to travel Thanksgiving week but haven’t yet booked your travel? Well, Virgin America has a fantastic fare sale at the moment, offering 50% off Main Cabin Select and First Class fares. The promotion is valid for tickets booked by 11:59PM PT on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, and is valid for travel between November 17 and November 25, 2016. Simply use promotion code GOBBLE50 at the time of booking.
In my opinion Main Cabin Select (which is basically a bulkhead or exit row seat with free food and drinks) is often overpriced, though Virgin America’s first class is great. While it’s not fully flat, it’s significantly better than what you’ll usually find in domestic first class (with the exception of premium transcontinental routes).
In many cases first class is only marginally more expensive than economy when using this promotion code. For example, I see fares from Los Angeles to Seattle for $157 in first class, when economy would be $122.
Anyway, there are some capacity controls, so not all first class fares will be eligible. However, availability seems to be pretty good, so this is a very nice opportunity to save on a Virgin America first class ticket. I’m tempted to take advantage of one of these fares…
