Our Take

With a big travel window, and fares from only 48,000 miles roundtrip this is an exciting promotion where you can save 20% off the typical best prices you'd expect on these routes. The only problem with it are the somewhat extensive blackout dates. If you a fortunate enough to want to travel outside these dates then this sale can yield some great value, otherwise it is a case of a great headline, but disappointing fine print.
