This year, airlines have been rolling out Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales that have us dreaming about everything from a tropical escape to French Polynesia (courtesy of Air Tahiti Nui) to domestic explorations of cities we love (hello, Portland, San Diego, and Austin).
These are the best Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Cyber Week airline promotions that we have found this sale season, deals that just might make that dream trip or impulsive getaway come to life.
$700 round-trip to Tahiti from the West Coast
Air Tahiti Nui is offering limited-time airfare and excursion packages starting at $698 per person. Packages include round-trip airfare to Tahiti from Los Angeles International Airport or Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as well as round-trip ferry transportation.

This deal is available for bookings made now until December 31, 2022, for travel between January 7 and March 31, 2023.
Take $100 off JetBlue round-trip fares

Using that code, we were able to find a $200 round-trip fare from New York (JFK) to San Francisco with nonstop (and non red-eye!) flights over Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend in 2023.
