   Virgin America has just launched a winter-spring sale with nonstop flights from Boston to San Francisco or Los Angeles as low as $99 each way, and one-way service with connecting flights to Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Orange Country also starting at $99.

    To qualify, you must buy tickets before Jan. 12 for travel between Jan. 7-June 20. All sale fares require a three-day advance purchase.

     Like many air sales, this one comes with restrictions. From Jan. 7-March 10, the lowest fares ($99) to all the destinations are available Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday; on the other days discount prices rise $10.

    For the March 11-June 20 period, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday fares to SF and LA start at $109 and rise to $119 on other days. Prices to Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego, or Orange Country start at $119 and go to $129.

    Sale fares are limited, may not be available on all flights, and there are some blackout dates. Still as these sales go this one looks pretty good, given that it's good through spring and the blackout dates are limited.

      Airlines are looking for ways to fill seats after the holiday rush and as we enter a slower travel season. Today, United Airlines also launched a quick sale with one-way fares as low as $45. Tickets must be purchased by tomorrow, and travel must be completed by March 11. Yesterday, JetBlue also announced a sale for travel through March 24. If you're looking to fly in the next few months, it appears you will have some discount options.
