UpdateIt looks like more cities have been added.  Also note that all fare classes appear to on sale on most flights.  Seattle seems to have the lion’s share, but it’s worth checking to see what’s available from your home airport. (h/t: DOC)

Delta appears to be having a very good flash sale on basic economy all fare classes on flights out of Seattle.  Almost all domestic fares appear to be on sale and there are some fares to Mexico and the Caribbean as well.  Officially, these fares are only valid for 6-14 days at a time, but I was able to find availability well outside the windows it shows on the landing page.  Dates seem to vary per destination, but are generally February-April.

Quick Thoughts

These prices represent 50-60% off of the lowest basic economy saver fares that we see, so it’s a very good value.  Delta has become less flexible with their basic economy awards and the stated cancellation charges will be more than many of the ticket prices, but they are still a great deal if you can use them.  These Delta flash sales seem to always have additional destinations and dates that aren’t listed, so leave a comment if you find a nugget.
