Sky-bound commuters and serial vacationers can save hundreds by buying plane-ticket packages. JetBlue
famously offered the "All You Can Jet" pass in 2009 and 2010, which allowed travelers to fly on as many trips as they could in a month for $599. This year, the discount airline targeted business travelers with Go Packs, ranging from $699 to $2,499, that included ten nonstop, one-way flights between certain airports from September 13 through December 19. JetBlue would not say for sure whether Go Packs will be offered again, but the ticket packages have proved popular with its customers.
Other airlines have been hopping on the bulk bandwagon: Virgin America
recently offered a three-flight package via flash-sale site Gilt City, and Cathay Pacific
has offered an unlimited travel deal between Hong Kong and all its other Asian destinations. Recently, regional airline Cape Air offers books of ten one-way tickets on selected commuter routes for savings of up to 30% off.
Some of the routes include New York City to Provincetown, Mass. (for $3,749); Hyannis to Nantucket ($609); Marion, Ill., to St. Louis ($457.50); Key West to Fort Myers ($1,199); and St. Thomas to San Juan ($949).
