If you’re a last-minute planner (and willing to fly home the day after Thanksgiving), your first-class holiday trip may be more affordable than you thought. Through 11:59 PM, Pacific on Wednesday, November 9, Virgin America, is offering 50% off Main Cabin Select and First Class seats for flights between November 17, 2016, and November 25, 2016.
This discount only applies to the base fare, not any additional taxes and fees. This promotion will only work if your selected seats are Main Cabin Select or First Class, not on Main Cabin seats.
To receive this discount, enter the promo code GOBBLE50. Counterintuitively, the place to enter the promo code is not on the payment screen; instead, it’s while you’re selecting your flights. Don’t miss it here or you won’t have a chance to enter it later, and will need to restart the flight selection process.
Sample Fares Using This Promo Code
Using this promotion, you may actually pay less to fly in Main Cabin Select — or even First Class — than Main Cabin. Here are some sample dates and routes we tested using the promotion (for all of these examples, we compared prices using the same flights on these dates; some flights may cost more in Main Cabin Select or First Class, or others may cost less in Main Cabin):
- San Francisco to Dallas, round-trip, November 20 through 25: $480.20 in Main Cabin, $397.20 in Main Cabin Select
- Denver to Los Angeles, round-trip, November 17 through 21: $740.20 in Main Cabin, $663.20 in First Class
- Fort Lauderdale to JFK, round-trip, November 18 through 22: $250.20 in Main Cabin, $237.20 in Main Cabin Select
While there are certainly many flights on which Main Cabin Select or First Class are still more expensive than Main Cabin, these examples show that there are some great deals out there with this promotion.
Remember, this promotion ends November 9 at 11:59 PM Pacific, so don’t hesitate in booking your flight if the dates covered work for you.
