Move over ExpressJet and Skywest — there’s a new regional carrier on the tarmac. GLO, a New Orleans-based, business-focused carrier will launch daily flights between New Orleans and Little Rock, Memphis, and Shreveport starting in November. Even better, they’re offering special one-way GLO saver fares from $189. Flights without the offer cost $200-$260 each way. You don’t, however, have to be a business traveler to appreciate GLO; leisure travelers who are considering a multi-city trip through the South should consider flying with them, too. Here’s what they can expect:
As we near the end of summer, there’s one thing we’re looking forward to: lower airfare this fall. And if you’re hoping to hop aboard a plane to far-flung locales, you’re in luck. Cathay Pacific — consistently voted a top airline by Skytrax and other industry experts — is offering round-trip flights in economy to select destinations in India, from $766 per person.
The latest airfare deal to show up on our radar combines two things we love: unlimited flights at a low price and Brazil. Low-cost carrier Azul Brazilian Airlines is offering two unlimited-flight air passes covering 100 destinations within Brazil. Pay either $299 for 10 days or $399 for 21 days.

When Frontier Airline’s beloved chocolate chip cookie was taken off the menu in 2012 (shortly after being adopted from its original failing airline, Midwest), the world wept. Or at least inflight foodies did. The rest of us were already crying because of the fees we had to fork over to eat anything else on an airplane. And though most food offerings today will cost you an arm and a leg unless you’re flying in first or business class, there are a handful of airlines that still offer some free snacks in the coach cabin, on both long-haul and short flights. These are our favorites. What are yours?
With the summer winding down, it’s the perfect time to get a jump on fall and winter travel plans. Air France’s sale on business class airfare might provide the perfect incentive to get you to travel across the Atlantic to London, Paris, Amsterdam, or Rome in the coming months.
With the sale, round-trip flights from a number of U.S. cities like New York, Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, and Seattle are priced from $2,289. Fares require a minimum seven-day stay for travel between this November 1 and January 4, 2016, and you must book by September 3.
If you aren’t a business traveler who flies frequently on your company’s dime, it can be really, really difficult to achieve airline status — especially at a time when most companies have started to award points based on fare rather than mileage traveled. But there’s good news for JetBlue fans this week: The airline has launched what it’s calling a 90-Day Challenge that’ll let you get Mosaic status a bit more easily.
This year marks Singapore’s 50th year of independence, and the country is going all out with its festivities. Travelers are reaping the benefits of the occasion, too. Take for instance the 50 Days of Special Airfares promotion from Singapore Airlines. With it, round-trip flights in economy to select Asian cities are priced from $850 for travel between this September 1 and May 31, 2016 – just book by September 27.
There are many reasons to go across the pond in fall, not least of which are the flight deals that pop up every summer. On our radar this week are two great fares to Europe: $499 roundtrip to Milan on Emirates and $599 roundtrip to Istanbul on Turkish Airlines. But, as common with these types of price slashes, you only have a few days to act.
If you’re among the thousands of U.S. Americans who have flocked to Kayak and similar sites to check prices for Cuba flights, you were probably surprised to discover that, well, they’re not there.
While airlines have triumphantly announced new service to the island, and a greater number of Americans are eligible for travel to Cuba than ever in the past 55 years, purchasing a ticket is nowhere close to straightforward. Here’s what you need to know:

Until now, travelers had to rely on hearsay to know how good or horrible an airport was. But thanks to TripAdvisor, airport ratings are now just a click away.
The site, which currently offers reviews for restaurants, hotels, and attractions, has announced that it is opening a platform for airport reviews. Now users will be able to rate their airport experiences and help others find the best restaurants, places to sleep, and stores closest to a gate.
Many American airline carriers now offer enhanced economy options for fliers, which usually entails just a sliver of extra legroom, often at the front of the plane — all for an exorbitant price. Luckily, this isn’t the case with Singapore Airlines’ new premium economy class, which debuts on August 9, Singapore’s Independence Day, with service from Singapore to Sydney. Stateside, the service is launching from Los Angeles and New York in December, followed by San Francisco in January. In the meantime, here are five premium economy perks that go above and beyond the extra legroom.
