There was a time when people would set their alarms to be first in line at stores for the traditional Black Friday or day-after-Thanksgiving sales.
Thanks to the internet that is no longer necessary and, also thanks to the same medium, its opening a whole new world of possibilities and more things to find a bargain on.
Airlines, hotels, cruise lines and more are putting some inventory on sale this Black Friday and, in fact, right through to Cyber Monday and into the Christmas season. Here are some that travelers won’t want to miss.
Breeze Airways. The upstart budget carrier, founded by JetBlue creator David Neeleman, is jumping into the holiday fray in a big way. Breeze has put first-class tickets on sale for just $1 more than economy seats. The first-class sale is available for travel from November 27 through May 16, 2023, on the Breeze website.
