Virgin America is one of the airline wifi forerunners and was named the "Best Domestic Airline" by Travel and Leisure magazine six years in a row. VIrgin America planes are WiFi, food on demand, live TV and pay-per-view.

With advanced notice, round trip flights between Orlando and Los Angeles may generally run a traveler a bit over $300 (check Delta). So, while the Virgin America deal looks irresistible in some areas, the lower end tickets are definitively where the money saving deals are.

Virgin America has been hit recently with stories about slow growth and profit. During the summer, jet fuel prices fell by 8% per gallon (USATODAY).

The airfare deal is one of TravelZoo's top 20 deals. Booking must be done on the pc, not mobile and airfare dates are through Sept 17, 2013 through Feb 12, 2014.
