Airline deal: If you are flying aboard an airplane equipped with Gogo internet service, you will get 30 minutes of free in-air on-line access, through January 1, 2012. But the free internet access won’t let you check your email or the weather. The in-flight freebie from Gogo is only for on-line shopping the Gogo Fly & Buy Holiday Store, for special in-flight discounts and offers from more than a dozen top online retailersm including Barnes & Noble, BestBuy.com, FTD.com, Harry & David, hayneedle.com, JCPenney, Lobster Gram, Omaha Steaks, Wine.com. There are more than 1,200 Gogo-equipped aircraft on airlines including AirTran Airways, Virgin America, Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, Air Canada, American Airlines, United Airlines, and US Airways flights. Too bad this Gogo in-flight internet freebie won’t allow you to access the NYC on the Cheap Daily Deals page, where you’ll find more than 100 shopping deals a day.
I just found this great website with bargain airfare deals from and to New York City — all three major airports, JFK, LaGuardia and Newark. Right now, My Air Deals lists Delta flights to Europe starting at $279. That’s round-trip, not one way. Plus deals to places like Los Angeles and San Francisco for $169.
