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.

Southwest Airlines has launched an airfare sale, advertising prices as low as $59. But that’s for relatively short-haul flights, such as between Philadelphia and Raleigh-Durham. . I just looked at fares between NYC and Denver on a Wednesday — usually the lowest priced travel day of the week — in mid-August. The lowest Southwest price I could find was $124 each way in and out of Newark Liberty (EWR), which is still a great bargain at under $300 a round-trip, after taxes and other fees on top of the $124 fare.. LaGuardia-Denver flights cost a bit more. Purchase Southwest Airlines sale priced tickets before 11:59 p.m. PDT August 1, 2011, for travel between August 23rd and December 14th. So book your late summer and fall getaway now.
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.
