500 Snooze You Lose Airfares
While the last minute getaways have doubled this week, and there are a few deals to be had for a last minute airfares; our super cheap advanced purchase Snooze You Lose airfares are like a diamond in the rough. This week we are seeing great airfares on short haul flights, as well as for coast to coast fall travel.
Some of the major US cities have a potential of dropping even more as we enter into October. The airlines demanded exorbitant airfares over this past summer, they also watched many of you dish out big bucks for these seats. Airfares dropped in price right after Labor Day, and will only continue to get better. For October thru November 18 travel will be deader than a door nail. The airlines still need to fill empty seats, and the only solution to that is to offer much lower airfares that you can't refuse.
Furthermore, we strongly suggest you use our flexible dates travel calendar when booking. This tool gives you many options and days of the week that you can travel at the BestFares. We suggest that you do two searches one week apart. For example, search our flexible dates calendar for travel October 14-21, and then compare the possibilities next to the week of October 21-28. By shifting your travel dates by just a few days you could save hundreds of dollars.
Check out this small sample of this weekend's Snooze You Lose airfares. We have over 500 Snooze You Lose airfares on sale and some to destinations you would not even think about going, but if the price is right, then pack that bag!

DFW To London Business Class $2,350 RT Thru Aug. 30, Including X-Mas
Wow, what a deal of the day for all of you that have wanted to fly upfront in the sleeper seats to Europe, especially London.
This airfares from Dallas has been deeply cut for business class. There are several reasons why we love this price. When we priced Dallas to London in business class for next summer, traveling July 1-7, we got an airfare of $2,350 roundtrip on three different airlines. However, if you book those same dates with American, British Airways, or United the cheapest business class airfare is $6,600 roundtrip. You save $4,250 roundtrip!
The coach class airfare during those same dates is $1,795 roundtrip. So for an extra $275 more each way you fly in business class, and you get to check up to three bags for free.
During Christmas, we checked departing December 23, and returning January 2, 2015, the cheapest coach airfare was $1,325. But, we found a business class airfare on the same dates for $2,350. Business class on American, British Airways, and United were all over $6,600 roundtrip.
The cheapest travel days are available seven days a week, however some dates maybe sold out. Travel is valid between now and August 30, 2015, including Christmas! We did find this airfare departing on Saturdays throughout this entire sale. You must have a seven day advance purchase. This is a snooze you lose alert! This is one great deal, especially if you are traveling to London after May 15, 2015. When booking on Bestfares.com, you must change this class of service from economy to business to locate this fare.
Insider travel secret: If you are planning on flying to Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, etc in business class, why pay up to $6,500 roundtrip when you can fly to London for only $2,350? You still get to sit in business class for the long transatlantic haul, and then once you get to London you can spin out to your favorite European city and save a bundle, now that's the ticket, but you had better act now.

International Carriers Bringing Better Service, Lower Fares To Dallas
More international airlines expanding into U.S. cities and in Dallas it’s creating a big battle for flights to the Middle East, Asia, India and beyond.
Not only are we seeing some great fares due to competition, we are also seeing nicer, newer aircraft being brought in for some of these long-haul flights.
Texas is becoming a hub and spoke for international airlines, bringing us more four- and five-star carriers. For years both Dallas and Houston were ignored by some of the best international carriers and now we have Emirates, Qatar and Etihad (beginning December 3) in Dallas and Singapore and Turkish Airlines in Houston. We also have Qantas but it has only been in the Dallas/Fort Worth market for three years. These airlines have great customer service and they are bringing in bigger aircraft.
We often find better service from international carriers. The customer service and meal service on these carriers can be some of the best in the world. Skytrax (www.airlinequality.com), an airline quality rating system based in London, rates over 600 airlines. Qatar and Cathay Pacific are rated five stars and Air Canada, British Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa and Qantas are rated four stars.
When it comes to U.S. based airlines, only two get four stars, Virgin America and JetBlue. Three stars is the category for most legacy U.S. carriers like Alaska, American, Delta, Southwest, United and US Airways. Hopefully the legacy U.S. carriers will improve their customer service to compete with these international airlines.
In Dallas we are getting new international carriers that are investing in new aircraft loaded with perks and toys and the U.S. airlines not keeping up. Qantas begins flying the Airbus A380 plane on September 29 from Dallas to Sydney and Emirates will start A380 service on its flights between Dallas and Dubai on October 1.
The Airbus A380 is a double-decker plane can hold 450-490 seats and not only is this plane bigger, but it can fly nonstop on longer distances. This means you can fly nonstop to destinations like Sydney from Dallas instead of having to make a stop along the way. Etihad will begin flights on December 3 with a Boeing 777 with eight first class seats, 40 flatbed business class seats and 189 coach seats. Austin has the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner to London on British Airways.
American’s newest airplane, the Boeing 777 that flies to London has a seat pitch of 31 inches and a seat width of 17 inches in coach. By comparison, Emirates planes have a seat pitch of 32-34 inches, depending on where you sit, and the width is 18 inches in coach. Qatar’s flight 734, on the exact same airplane that American is using, has a seat pitch of 33 and a seat width of almost 19 inches. Every extra inch you can get in pitch or width can make a big difference in comfort level.
You definitely want to look at the number of hours that it takes to get to your destination when booking. Emirates has a published fare to Sydney via Dubai that is $200 cheaper than Qantas and American, but it takes 41 hours to get there. Do you want to save $200 and get there much, much later, or pay the extra money and get there in 16 hours? That’s a no brainer for me.
It’s important to know when to fly because your travel dates can make a big difference in the cost. For example, when we looked at roundtrip fares from Dallas to Sydney, Australia, the average airfare was $3,000 for departures between December 11 and January 31, but starting February 1, the price drops to as low as $1,815. Sydney highs in January and February are 80 degrees and because the airfare is so much cheaper in February, you’ll have an extra $1,000 and enjoy the same great weather.
Not only can travel dates make a difference, but booking your flight through a codeshare partner can sometimes be cheaper. When we looked at flights for travel February 4-11 from Dallas to Sydney, American had the cheapest price, which was $1,815 for a nonstop flight on codeshare partner Qantas, but Qantas was charging $1,929 for the exact same flight.
You need to compare the rates, because on some days, American may be more expensive than Qantas on this route. We also see this on flights to Europe where one member of a codeshare offers a cheaper fare for the exact same flights. It’s worth taking a look at the codeshare partners and pricing the fare with multiple carriers.
The good news when we look at the four- and five-star rated airlines is that American codeshares with some of the best, including Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Qatar and Etihad. You could fly on some of these more luxurious carriers with a codeshare.
When we look at places like India, Tel Aviv and Africa, including Johannesburg, we are finding that fares are dropping from Dallas. Emirates and Qatar fares have been very competitive and both carriers have offered India flights for under $1,000. This forced British Airways to drop its fares to $850 to India, including a free stopover in London.
We recently priced roundtrip fares from Dallas to Doha on Qatar and the price was $1,600 for a nonstop flight in October, but United and codeshare partner Lufthansa were fighting back with $800 fares. Business class fares on the same route were $7,000 business on Qatar, but only $3,748 on Lufthansa, which was almost half the price. These international carriers are noted for their superior upper class service, but know that it can come at an expensive price.
The bottom line is hopefully with more international airlines coming to Texas, we will see our U.S. airlines up the ante. We have already seen American add some new aircraft and in November, American will receive its first 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The question is who is going to give you the best customer service and toys in the sky at the best price.
Emirates, Qatar and Etihad’s main mission is to get the high dollar business and first class passenger away from the domestic legacy carriers and these airlines are known to offer a superior product. The competition here in Dallas on international routes is becoming fierce and that is bringing down economy fares on select routes.

Dallas Fares Are Dropping, New Hot Promo Code, And Cheap Travel Deals
We’ve been talking a lot about a party starting at Dallas Love Field on October 13, but the celebrations could come sooner than that. We expect Southwest to offer a blowout sale on a Tuesday in October and it could happen as early as October 7. Not only will fares be discounted on Southwest, but competing carriers will match both at Dallas Love Field and Dallas Fort Worth Airport.
During Southwest’s last blowout sale in June, the carrier only offered sale fares on nonstop routes and the airline may do that again with this sale. The good news for those of us in the Dallas/Fort Worth area is that we will have at least 17 new nonstop destinations out of Dallas during this sale period.
Looking at past sales, this airfare sale should cover travel from December 2 or 3 through December 17 and from January 6 through mid to late February. You should be able to fly any day of the week except Fridays and Sundays.
One thing to keep in mind with this sale is that it will be hard to beat the new intro fares we’ve already been seeing from Southwest and other carriers out of both Dallas airports. At press time we saw Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver and Philadelphia all for $119 roundtrip. We’ve seen Los Angeles and Washington (DC) drop to as low as $168 and New York for $219. By comparison, both New York and Los Angeles fares were over $400 this past summer.
Where you will see the best bang for your buck during this sale will be on short-haul flights up to 500 miles. We could see fares from Dallas to Houston, Austin and Midland for as low as $98 to $118 roundtrip. Fares from Dallas, Houston and Austin have been averaging $150 roundtrip and Midland has been averaging $215 roundtrip. That Midland fare is more expensive than some of the new long-haul routes.
Regular prices on Dallas short-haul flights have been going up. We used to see Snooze-You-Lose fares to Midland for $78, but we aren’t seeing those kind of prices anymore. Instead, you’ll regularly pay $215 roundtrip, but for almost half the money you can fly four times further to Los Angeles.
If Southwest offers sale fares on connecting flights, we could see dramatic price drops. Fares to cities that aren’t included in the new Dallas Love nonstop routes could be much cheaper than usual.
This sale could be a good time to cash in Southwest points or other programs that use points like Capital One and American Express. When you see an airfare for $125 you can redeem far fewer points for a free ticket. If you are using standard miles on a carrier like American, United or Delta it’s better to pay for the ticket and save your miles for a more expensive ticket. Why would you redeem 25,000 miles or more for a free ticket when the cost is so cheap?
There are four players that are helping make the fares go down at both Dallas Love and Dallas/Fort Worth, including Southwest, Virgin America, Spirit and Frontier. Spirit is an airline loaded with fees, but it puts the pressure on other carriers to lower fares. Frontier also has low fares and is adding new routes to and from Dallas.
Virgin America is also helping lower fares, but the airline could have a tough time with moving its flights from DFW Airport to Dallas Love Field. I do expect to see Virgin America offer some wild and crazy deals.
If you act fast, you can get a coupon code for up to 25 percent off flights to or from Dallas Love Field when you enter an online sweepstakes by October 6, with no purchase required. The coupon is valid for up to two travelers in economy, main cabin select or first class. You can save a greater amount if you enter the sweepstakes and then share what you love about Virgin America on Facebook or Twitter. You can save 15 percent off flights on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, or 25 percent off flights on Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday for entering and sharing on Facebook or Twitter. If you just enter the sweepstakes without sharing on Facebook or Twitter, you can save 10-15 percent off flights, depending on travel days. Tickets must be purchased by October 20, with a 14-day advance, for travel through February 11, 2015. Holiday blackout dates and restrictions apply. Visit sharethelovedallas.com to enter and for details.
At press time, using the promo coupon with the maximum discount of 25 percent would allow you to fly from Dallas to Los Angeles in economy class for $125 roundtrip, to New York for $160 roundtrip and San Francisco for $191 roundtrip. If you are at a loss about what to say, you can say, “I love getting 25 percent off Virgin America fares!”
People have been asking me how long fares will stay so low from Dallas to cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington (DC), New York and Denver. We could see airfares going higher than today, but still staying well below previous prices. We will have close to 40 nonstop flights per day from Dallas to New York area airports, including Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK and close to 40 flights per day to the Washington (DC) area, including, Baltimore/Washington, Dulles and Reagan National.
Dallas to Los Angeles has close to 30 daily nonstops and Dallas to Denver will also have a lot of flights with Southwest, Spirit, Frontier, American and United all flying on that route. That gives us a lot of seats that need to be filled. During peak holidays and summer airlines can fill those seats to capacity, but in slow periods, like the fall, winter and spring, we could see some bargain basement deals. Talk about a party at Love Field, the party has already started because many of these fares are already incredibly low. I can’t remember the last time I saw Los Angeles or Washington (DC) for $125 roundtrip on nonstop flights, or Atlanta and Chicago for $119 or less roundtrip. These are amazing deals and the airlines won’t make money from these new promotional fares, but they will make it up somewhere else. The battle of the Dallas airports will be good for leisure travelers, Dallas tourism and convention business, which will definitely help the local economy.
Earn Triple Points With Southwest And AirTran
Southwest recently launched a targeted offer where Rapid Rewards members can earn triple points on flights between now and November 20, 2014. You must register by November 20 and then book and fly by that day as well. With this promotion, your points-earning is bumped to the following levels based on the kinds of fares you purchase:
- Wanna Get Away: 12 bonus points per dollar – for a total of 18 points per dollar
- Anytime: 20 bonus points per dollar – for a total of 30 points per dollar
- Business Select: 24 bonus points per dollar – for a total of 36 points per dollar
In terms of value, you can redeem Southwest points at a rate of 70 per dollar for Wanna Get Away fares, or 1.4 cents each. So the return on your spending with this promotion just on Wanna Get Away fares is right around 25% – not bad!
To earn the bonus points, you must register prior to travel, and it is valid on new reservations booked within the promotional period only. The good thing about Southwest, though, is that all its fares are basically refundable. So if you have already booked travel during that time period and the airfare is still comparable, you can simply cancel your reservation and rebook after you have completed registration to earn the triple points.
Now the bad news. Per the terms, bonus points do not count toward A-List, A-List Preferred or Companion Pass qualification, which is too bad since this could have been a good way to make a final push for 2015 qualification.
Also, you do not earn bonus points on award, Companion Pass, Southwest Vacations Packages, Jackpot Deals or rewards travel, or on Southwest flights booked through AirTran – so be sure to book through Southwest!

Cheap First Class Airfares For Fall, Including Thanksgiving Thru Feb. 28
Many of you have discovered that flights will be sky high for summer travel this year. We also want you to think about fall and even Thanksgiving, where again airfares are sky high. Today several airlines, including Delta, United, and American have slashed their premium first class airfares by up to 70% through February 28.
The best days to travel to qualify for these first class seats are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. However, we are finding cheap first class seats on some routes valid seven days a week. For example, from Dallas to Los Angeles. we found first class seats available seven days a week; and for Thanksgiving travel departing, the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, and returning the Saturday after Thanksgiving for $529 roundtrip.
