You hear all the time that people increasingly "value experiences over owning things." So it should come as no shock to hear that cheap airline tickets are hot promotions around this time of year, alongside big screen TVs, Frozen 2 toys, and mattresses.
The travel industry is clearly pushing for "Travel Tuesday" deals to become a phenomenon following on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. From what we see, the flight deals today are mostly an extension of Cyber Monday airline sales, and these deals typically extend until the middle of the week. One reason there might be slightly better travel deals today is because airline tickets also tend to be slightly cheaper on Tuesdays in general.
Regardless of the semantics around Travel Tuesday, a deal’s a deal, and a lot of airline sales are going on right now!
