Probably posted elsewhere, but just got this:
From the Travelzoo Newsdesk:

NEW YORK--JUNE 2, 2009-- West Coast fares from New York
City were reduced to $109 each way today as part of a new
Virgin America sale. The reduced-price flights cost up to
$100 less than other airlines' roundtrip fares.

The sale includes travel from June 5 to Nov. 11, with
the lowest fares available June 5-17 and Aug. 26 to
Nov. 11. Tickets must be purchased by June 16, though
some routes might sell out quickly.

Sample fares from JFK (each way):

- Las Vegas ... $109
- Los Angeles ... $109
- Orange County ... $109
- San Diego ... $109
- San Francisco ... $109
- Seattle ... $109

Travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, June 18 to
Aug. 25, costs $20 more.

Virgin America's in-flight experience has earned the
airline the title of "Best Domestic Airline" by Conde Nast
Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazines. It's the first and
only airline to offer in-flight Internet service on every
flight.

My travel schedule this month is becoming very train-oriented. I have four Acela trips next week alone.

That will be one of my first stops there, whenever I go.
I've posted the photos from that trip along with my trip to the top of the Forth (railroad) Bridge earlier that day.

After I did more proding to find out more info, I'm way, way over qualified for the open positions to that my qualifications would make me the boss', boss', boss. I'm over qualified for what's available in the market as a whole. The demand is for people with 5-7 years of experience to do design work. I've been project management for the past 11 years.

Good night.
Very sorry hear that....good luck in the search

Not. Maybe 10 posts total. Just not really useful at all.

These fares aren't really all that great. A ~$225a/i r/t has been around pretty much all year.

Serves them right.....I hope they wound up sitting next to another person whose "ethnicity" they object to....idiots. There's no room for that kind of intolerance in the world much less in a metal tube 7 miles above the earth.

CO.com is only showing M fares for EWR-DFW next week at $1200 and you have to actually click Nonstop to get it to show up. Everything else is a connecting flight. There is a cheaper fare but it has a 10 day min and thanks to co.com ing yesterday I was not able to book it
