Use Facebook Pages for Up-to-the-Minute Airline Travel Deals
If airlines are feeling a slight dip in their bookings, all they need to is put out a special deal on their Facebook page and multiple thousands of fans will see their offer.
Best of all, it’s free!
The holiday season is generally not a time for airlines to be throwing out travel deals, but just look at some of the deals I found with just a very little poking around:
- Virgin America – Have you flown in main cabin select or first class? Upgrade your holiday travel for as little as $35 (+taxes/fees/restr) and enjoy more room to stretch out, free food, drinks and entertainment. As if flying with us wasn’t already uber-fabulous. https://vgn.am/6037uLqL
- Southwest Airlines – Play the Southwest Airlines Cart Commander and find out how easy it is to book a flight, hotel, and car all at once! You could win one of over 150 instant prizes, plus get a chance to win our Grand Prize, a trip for two to Las Vegas. (Note: Southwest Airlines has over 1.2 million fans on Facebook!)
- Delta Airlines – Don’t forget starting today we’re giving you FREE in-flight Wi-Fi through Jan. 2 courtesy of Google Chrome!

I found all of these deals within five minutes on airline Facebook fan pages.
As I mentioned before, airlines deals are not all that juicy prior to the very busy holiday travel season. But, come January 2nd, keep a sharp eye and you just might grab a real attractive travel deal for yourself.
