So, you know, maybe this doesn’t really qualify as “Brooklyn news,” but it is welcome news to us and we’re in Brooklyn: Jet Blue is having a huge flash sale till 4pm today in which one-way flights from New York to places like LA, Austin, Orlando and the Bahamas are only $32. So, like, the cost of going to a 3D movie if you buy snacks.
We were first tipped off to this sale by a tweet by Ryan Craggs, and after checking Jet Blue’s website and verifying that it wasn’t a cruel prank, we instantly started daydreaming about where we’d want to go. And that daydream didn’t take us very long: Somewhere warm please! But what’s that, you say? You like the cold? Weird! But also, you can get a discount flight to Rochester, too. Act now, before these flights sell out. There are a few restrictions (flights are valid between 1/21-2/11 and only on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday), but still! This is a damn good deal and not the worst incentive to take a few vacation days during the doldrums of the New York winter. Happy flying.
