Gilt City and Virgin America Hope You Like Your Flights Hot, Sexy and in Bulk

Wow. The airlines are really embracing group-buying discount sites. First it was Virgin America selling their Chicago flights like hotcakes on Groupon, then everyone from Frontier to Southwest offered deals, then Delta hooked up with LivingSocial and now we're full circle back to Virgin America.

Just announced today, Virgin America is offering discounts on their Main Cabin Select seats if you bulk-buy flights via Gilt City. The demographic pairing is perfect, obviously.

Anyway, here's the deal(s):

· 3 short-haul roundtrips (like SFO to SEA) for $427
· 3 medium-haul roundtrips (like DFW - LAX) for $964
· 3 long-haul roundtrips (like New York-LAX) for $1,205

· 5 short-haul roundtrips for $673
· 5 medium-haul roundtrips for $1,521
· 5 long-haul roundtrips for $1,900

· 10 short-haul roundtrips for $1,270
· 10 medium-haul roundtrips for $2,870
· 10 long-haul roundtrips for $3,585

These deals do not include taxes and fees, but do include complimentary food and beverage, better legroom and five eleVAte points for every $1 spent. There are black-out dates, the tickets are only good for one passenger and all flights must be booked by June 15, 2012...so really the Gilt City deals are ideal for people who know they'll be hopping around Virgin America-served cities in the coming year and want a little comfort and consistency.

If you can't view the deal because you're not yet a member of Gilt City, you can join right now right here, just hide your credit card before you do!
