Weekly Deals on American Airlines
American Airlines (www.aa.com) offers special reduced fare deals every week on some of its routes both within the United States and often internationally. These can be quite significant reductions from the usual fares, and with air fares rising fast, who isn't looking for a deal.
Some sample fares for next weekend include New York to Toronto for $254, Chicago to Huntsville, Alabama for $178, or Chicago to Tulsa, Oklahoma for $194. Fares are round-trip and include taxes. Another recent fare was Miami to Columbus, Ohio for $274.
On American's Website you can sign up to be notified of weekly deals, or of deals leaving from a particular sirport. The weekend deals are an especially appealing option if you are free to travel at the spur of the moment. During summer, though, it is a good idea to make sure you can find a reasonably-priced place to stay as well as a low air fare, and don't forget to factor in the cost of getting to and from the airports.
Happy Fourth of July..
