Southwest's Thanksgiving Sale
If someone tried to pass get to Egypt for less than that. But it's mid-November, and we're just a week away from Thanksgiving, and the rules are a little different. People are willing to pay top dollar to belly up to the table next Thursday with the fam. Will they pay as much as $700-something? Eh, we sort of doubt it. Which is why we can't bring ourselves to list any of these Southwest (tel. 800/435-9792; www.southwest.com) fares on Airfarewatchdog. Too high! But if you absolutely must make the trip, it's not an entirely bad sale. Do a little rooting around and you'll find a reasonable fare here and there. Ahem, Boston to Baltimore $190 round-trip or New York to Chicago $252 round-trip. See? Those aren't so horrible. If you're in a pinch, and have the good fortune of living in or around a hub, you may come up with something just as reasonable.
If interested, this sale is good for travel from November 24 through December 2, and must be purchased by November 23.
Aeroflot's Global Sale
Try for a second to shake off old hang-ups you may have regarding Russian airline Aeroflot's (tel. 888/686-4949; usa.aeroflot.aero/eng/) safety record and check out the fares from their current Global Sale. Earlier in the week, we found New York to Cairo, Egypt for just $487, including taxes, for travel in February.

This sale is good for travel from December 1 through March 27, with blackout dates from December 15 through January 15. Seats are very limited, and we've found the lowest fares to be available for travel in February.
