There's a little pattern forming in the clouds. After Southwest announced its fare sale to encourage travel during the slower upcoming season, American Airlines came out with its own reduced fare plan. The handful of deals involving travel to and from NYC are pretty attractive.
The airline will sell some seats for $69 each way between Miami and New York; $84 each way from Chicago; $99 from Dallas-Fort Worth; and $109 from San Francisco and Los Angeles. The promotion covers travel from Sept. 15 through Dec. 12, though of course the days around Thanksgiving are excluded from the sale. Tickets are on sale through Friday.
