US Airways Twitter Deals this Week, Deep Discounts but for Very Limited Departure Cities and Travel Dates

@USAirways is offering deep discounted fares this week. They don’t offer Twitter deals as frequently as United, this is something new for them. And they’re not especially flexible. At least with United one can leave from various cities usually and there’s flexibility in travel dates. With US Airways departure city and travel dates are limited. Still, they’re worth watching for especially if you live in a US Airways hub city.

Yesterday’s offer was Philadelphia-Oslo.

This morning’s deal is $79 each way plus tax for roundtrip Charlotte – Rio.

•Depart from Charlotte between September 21 and 23, 2010.
•Return from Rio between September 27 and 29, 2010.
•Hurry – there are only 30 seats each way!

If this helps you, great! If not, follow @USAirways on Twitter and hopefully their deals later in the week will appeal.

Mostly though I hope this week’s experiment because a regular offering and that they broaden booking dates and departure cities. Perhaps if this test is viewed favorably they will.

  1. USair seem to be using twitter in a different way than United, 20 seats each direction is just a drop in the ocean, they are using a small amount of excess capacity as marketing currency. Previously I had no idea they flew CLT to Rio, now I do. I guess we should watch for CLT-FCO.
    United seems to use it more as a load management tool, rather than dumping excess capacity through a consolidator. I expect we will more SYD twares the second half of 2010.
