Virgin America 3-day summer sale, book by June 19

Virgin America has a 3-day summer travel sale for tickets purchased by 11:59pm Thursday, June 19 for travel July 8 through August 27, 2014 with a 21-day advance purchase requirement.

San Francisco routes as low as $69 one way.

July 8, 2014 and August 27, 2014 one way rates

  • SFO-LAX $69
  • SFO- PDX $69
  • SFO-LAS $89
  • SFO-SAN $99
  • SFO-SEA $99
  • SFO-AUS $159
  • SFO-DFW $159

Sep 3 – Nov 19, 2014 one-way rates

  • SFO-FLL Fort Lauderdale $169
  • SFO-ORD Chicago $169
  • SFO-BOS Boston $179
  • SFO-EWR Newark, NJ $199
  • SFO-IAD Dulles, Washington D.C. $199
  • SFO-JFK New York $199
  • SFO-MCO Orlando $199
  • SFO-DCA Washington D.C. $209
  • SFO-PHL Philadelphia $199 (Sep 3 – October 6)
  • SFO-DAL Dallas $139 (Oct 13 – Nov 19)

My sample rate check for SFO-SEA July 19-23 came up at $199 round trip. A quick search on Travelocity showed Delta and United at $188 and Alaska or Virgin America at $193.

My sample rate check for Tuesday Sep 23 with return Saturday Sep 27 for SFO-ORD Chicago came out to $318 all-in for a round trip which is $20 less than $169 one-way rates shown.

American Airlines came up with a low fare of $278 SFO-ORD for these same dates, but not as good a schedule.

This may be a sale rate, but the routes I checked were not a discount rate compared to other carriers flying the same route on the same dates.
