“Where Brooklyn at?”…
Travel between East Coast and West Coast is a pretty serious journey, but one with ample reward. There are some thing the East Coast does better than any other, and of course, there are some things – like sunshine – where the West is the best. Whichever side of this classic hip hop battle you’re on, there are awesome flight deals from up and down both sides starting at $190 round trip on major airlines.
JetBlue is leading the pack, and that has American, Delta and United following. From quite a few cities you can find round trip, direct transcontinental flights for under $200. Considering these flights are usually over $250, or even $350 that’s pretty exciting. We figured it would just be easiest to lay out all the very best flight deals from East and West and let you figure it out from there…
