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.
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.

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.
