Unlike the other carriers listed here, Delta isn’t offering a sale on paid fares — instead, through Monday, you can book discounted award tickets for 10,000 miles each way. Many of the discounted awards are for short-haul travel, but there are some medium-haul routes included as well, such as Los Angeles to Tampa and New York to San Diego. Book by November 30 for travel between January 5 and February 24, 2016. This is an exceptional deal considering how pricey Delta’s domestic awards can be!
Emirates offers discounted companion fares on a semi-regular basis, but destinations are usually limited to Italy or Dubai. This time, there are many more routes available, but you’ll need to book quickly — the airline’s Black Friday sale ends at midnight ET on Sunday. As part of Emirates’ sale, you can book the usual JFK-Milan for $550 apiece (when you book for two), but the airline is also offering flights from the US to Dubai for $625, Bangkok or Singapore for $825 and Johannesburg for $875. Book by November 29 for travel between January 9 and May 6, 2016.
Rather than offering discounted fares on select routes like its competitor Emirates, Etihad is running a 25% off sale on many of its routes from the US. Flights must be ticketed by Monday for travel between January 1 and June 30, 2016. You must search for flights directly through Etihad using promo code CYBERMONDAY to take advantage. The discount applies to flights booked in economy, business and first class, though we weren’t able to book discounted flights in any class from JFK, so the offer may be limited beyond what Etihad’s listed in its terms and conditions.
Beginning Monday, November 30 through December 14, you’ll be able to book discounted flights to China, Macau and other destinations on Star Alliance carrier EVA Air. Fares start at $650 round-trip and are valid for travel from February 7 through May 20, 2016. The lowest fares are available for weekday travel, but you can fly on the weekends as well for a $25 surcharge. Visit EVA’s site on Monday to book.
For 48 hours beginning Monday, Fiji Airways is offering up to 40% off flights departing the US. Naturally, the cheapest fares are available from Honolulu, with HNL to Nadi, Fiji available for $799 round-trip. Flights from the mainland aren’t much pricier, however — you can fly from Los Angeles to Fiji for $899 or Los Angeles to Sydney (via Fiji) for $905 round-trip for travel between January 23 and March 22, 2016.
Last but certainly not least, Singapore Airlines is offering an excellent Black Friday sale of its own. Through midnight on Monday (local departure city time), you can book discounted flights to Europe and Asia in both economy and business class for travel between January 10 and May 31, 2016. For example, you can fly from New York to Frankfurt for $699 in economy or $2,599 in business. Or travel from Houston to Moscow for $499 in economy or $4,999 in business. Finally, Singapore’s flights from Los Angeles to Tokyo and San Francisco to Seoul are available for $599 in economy or $2,999 in business — a phenomenal price for both cabins!
