Moreover, JetBlue Airways is dropping its “all you can-jet” which allowed the promotion of pass holders to make unlimited flights for a month in the fall.
JetBlue said Monday, shoppers not to execute the agreement in 2011, but were offered a 30 percent discount for a return this fall. Passes are sold out quickly and in 599 in 2009 and 499 and 699 and in 2010.
Southwest AirTran selling new and ends on Thursday night and includes travel August 23 through November 16, dozens of cities. The agreements have a lot of restrictions, including no travel on Fridays and Sundays and Labor Day dates. The seats are “limited” and not are offered on each flight.
AirTran and JetBlue for travel sales fall launched last week. Airlines expect a busy summer with nearly full planes, but demand usually falls in the fall.
Tom Parsons, CEO of the travel site Bestfares.com, said airlines have been cutting prices on some routes to a minimum of 19 and this year. “They all have prices in 40 and at some point this year, but not this many cities,” he said.
Parsons had planned an anniversary sale of Southwest, but said the inclusion of AirTran in the sale agreement made more than I expected. He said other airlines are forced to compete with Southwest on price rather than risk losing customers.
Southwest shares rose 12 cents to close at 11.16, and JetBlue and earned 12.5 cents to close at 6125 y.
