Airlines offering Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals

 

Here’s what I have so far from airlines offering Black Friday /Cyber Monday deals.  I’ll update as I get more and please let me know if you see something that should be added.

Alaska Air is promising to roll out deals on Black Friday – November 24 and on Cyber Monday, November 27.

Cathay Pacific’s sale is live now and runs through November 29 for travel from January 1 to May 23, 2018 with deal to Hong Kong, Taipei, Manila, Tokyo and several other cities in Business, Premium Economy and Economy class. Use code HOLIDAY to add savings to vacation packages

Fiji Airways has a Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal promising up to $600 savings on flights from LA and San Francisco to Honolulu, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand.

Southwest Vacations has Black Friday offers for $125 off domestic and $250 in international destinations.

WOW Air  has some of the tantalizing $99 fares on their site and promises more on “Purple Friday.”

Check back for other offers as they roll out.

Heathrow’s back with (adorable) Mr. & Mrs. Bair

Set to a Petula Clark song, this promotional video from Heathrow Airport tells the story of Doris and Edward Bair and builds on the sweet meeting story that began in a video the airport put out last Christmas.

Both are charming. And both may make you tear up a little.

Free ice-skating at Denver International Airport

Here’s a contender for Airport Amenity of the Week:

Free ice-skating (with complimentary ice-skate rental) is back at Denver International Airport from November 24 through January 7, 2018.

The 38-by-60-foot rink (which will be bigger than last year’s rink) will be  located in the pre-security area DEN Plaza and will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., with holiday decorations, a lounge, storage cubbies and a wide variety of entertainment and family-friendly music playing in the background.
