If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the cities that Virgin America (the US subsidiary of Richard Branson’s Virgin Airways) serves AND if you can travel at relatively short notice, then you can potentially save quite a few bucks. What’s more: Virgin America’s service is reported to be some of the best available. The one day sale is valid for travel October 13 to November 8, 2011 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Exceptions: travel December 2 to March 14 for Puerto Vallarta and travel December 15 to February 15 for Palm Springs.
