AirTran Seasons Sale

AirTran (tel. 800-AIR-TRAN; www.airtran.com) is offering up a nice little sale for fall and winter travel. This is touted as being system-wide but as is often the case with AirTran sales, you'll find the best fares between the eastern cities.

This sale is valid for travel through February 27, and blackout dates include November 20, 21 and 24 through 26, December 19 through 23 and 25 through 30, January 1 through 6, and February 14 through 19. Still interested? Book your tickets by midnight, November 13.

Aloha Airlines Thanksgiving and December Deals

If turkey dinner with the fam tends to leave you feeling frazzled, a little jaunt to Hawaii could be just the thing. Aloha Airlines (tel. 800/367-5250; www.alohaairlines.com) is offering some swell deals to the islands for late November and December.

Icelandair Holiday Sale

Been shopping around for a reasonably priced ride to Scandinavia this fall? Be sure to check out the new holiday sale from Icelandair (tel; 800/223-5500; www.icelandair.com). Sure, this sale also includes travel to Frankfurt, Glasgow, Paris, and Amsterdam, too, but the fares to Scandinavia are the real bargains here.

American Airlines' Bolivia Sale

American Airlines (tel. 800/433-7300; www.aa.com) is having a sale on winter travel to Santa Cruz, Bolivia from Miami, New York, and D.C. How does it compare to what the other guys are charging? We checked Miami to Santa Cruz for January 10 through 17 and found $600 round-trip, nonstop on American, and $749 round-trip on TACA. And that's with three, count Â?em, three plane changes! So unless you're willing to pay extra for the joy of multiple layovers, American is the obvious choice. And in every other case we checked, American's fares came out on top.

Again, the following are all round-trip and include taxes:
