Just one day after JetBlue's announcement that there's essentially be no All-You-Can-Jet pass this year in favor of their new, business traveler-oriented GoPacks, we're thrilled to say that actually, yes, there will be an All-You-Can-Jet alternative after all. The only issue? You'll figure it out after reading the name of the pass: All-Your-Pet-Can-Jet.
Here's what's up. For $299, you may bring one pet with you (respecting JetBlue's carry-on size and weight regulations for pets) on any of your JetBlue flights between the dates of September 7-December 31, with no holiday black-out dates. This means that Fido or Mr. Meowski can travel along with you on vacation and home for the holidays and just for fun without having to pay the $100 pet fee for each individual flight.

The fine people at Asia's newest airline, Scoot, have been working hard to start a new airline and expand their network. After a launch that involved enough fanfare to fuel their planes, the airline has been bringing their yellow birds back and forth from Singapore to Sydney and the Gold Coast in Australia. After adding Bangkok and Tianjin, Scoot has now added Taipei, Taiwan to their list of destinations.
Starting September 18th, happy little Scooters can scoot off from Singapore to Taipei. And if you want to fly further than Taiwan, eventually you can follow that plane to Tokyo. After a brief stop to drop off and pick up passengers, the plan is to send the plane right on to the Japanese capital. Right now, bookings are not being taken for Tokyo.

Hey, who wants to fly to Frankfurt onboard an Airbus A380? Trick question! Who doesn't?
If you followed along with our incredible journey on none other than the Singapore Airlines A380 earlier this year, then we've got super awesome news: the mega flight deal from New York-JFK to Frankfurt and has returned, for an 11-day sale. Wait wait waitthe deal gets sweeter as Singapore isn't just discounting roundtrip economy class tickets to Europe, but also on to Singapore and Southeast Asia.
The prices (including taxes, fees & fuel surcharges):
It wasn’t too long ago that we heard about the revamped and relaunched Mokulele Airlines, and it looks like the airline is doing its best to stay in the news. Obviously locals and tourists heading between the different islands of Hawaii can quickly rack up some decent frequent flyer miles—despite the short distances—so the airline has decided to launch its very own loyalty program. However, their new program is focused a little bit more on discounts rather than points.
The airline is introducing flexible fares for senior citizens, and the rates start as low as just $38.80 each way. Grandmas and grandpas do need to be residents of the Aloha State, and the discount fares must be booked within 30 minutes of departure at the airport. We never would have guessed that using the airport check-in counter as a ticket counter would be an option again, but that’s exactly what the WikiWings program is all about.

The Scootitude is getting even more and more intense with the newest (not-so) litte budget carrier of Singapore Airlines. We have already created a lot of hype over the airline, its uniforms, launch cities, and on-board offering. Yesterday, in Singapore, the website opened for business, but not without a little lot of hoopla.
If you have been following the happenings of big yellow Boeing 777s, you will know that there has been much lead up to the introductory pricing of the inaugural flights. In unique fashion, the Facebook page tempted visitors to sign-up for more info. The carrier then challenged it's fans to get as many registrations as possible and with every registration, initial fares would decrease. The more sign-ups, the lower the fares.

Airlines understand that once that cabin door closes, the revenue for unsold seats is lost forever. Some carriers even like to oversell the cabin, which is what causes passengers to be bumped. Even the mere thought of getting bumped from a flight enrages us, so that's all we need to mention about the matter. Regardless, airlines sometimes get creative with promotions to fill those seats.
Enter Virgin Australia, who've introduced Mystery Breaks. Basically, passengers purchase a seat on a plane without knowing the arrival airport. For the spontaneous traveler, it's a godsend. If you are more of a pedantic traveler, your palms may already be sweaty.

So the time has finally come for airlines to reveal the actual cost of the airfare they’re selling. We talked about the rules and regulations earlier this month, but now the reactions are starting to pour in.
Notice that Delta happily advertises on their booking page that all ticket prices include all taxes—they note “One Price. Period.” However, that’s not the case for the head honchos over at Spirit Airlines, as they’re more than a little cranky with Uncle Sam and all the new airfare pricing mandates, to the end that they're flat-out insulting consumer intelligence. Right, tell us something we don't know about Spirit, you say.

January is a good month for consumers looking to buy some airfare, as in just a few weeks some new rules kick in about how tickets and flights are priced and promoted.
Starting on January 26, the way you buy flights is going to change just a little bit, but don’t worry as it’s an easy change and it makes things better. Airlines will now have to disclose the true final amount of your ticket, and that means revealing all fees, taxes, and other little tidbits that mess up your travel budget. So moving forward you’ll know how much the total airfare will set you back before you get to the spot where you enter your credit card information.
These rules and regulations should also effect airline advertisements and promotions, as they’re supposed to now promote only the actual full fares—inclusive of taxes, fees, and this and that. We’re thinking that could really bum out carriers like Spirit Airlines, but it’s good to know what you’re getting yourself into right up front.
