You know the airlines are hurting when they’re offering Los Angeles (LAX) to Miami (MIA) flights for $50 each way. And no, this isn’t on low fare carriers like Spirit. It’s on American Airlines, including their 777 aircraft (though it will probably be downgraded). See screenshot below.
I know it’s a scary time out there and I don’t think people should be traveling for a while but hopefully this crisis will pass soon and people will take to the skies again. If they do, you will want to jump on these low fares because they will no doubt triple when the airlines start cutting capacity and the economy gets better.
I wrote a post on why now is the best time to buy plane tickets and the main reason, besides the low fares, is the loose restrictions; the airlines will let you change your flight once at no charge and give you a credit to use (valid for one year from purchasing your tickets). Keep in mind, if the airlines do cancel your flight or severely delay it, you can get a full refund.
