Cold Weather Prompts Cheap Caribbean Flights

Maybe AirTran Airways read our report yesterday about the correlation between decreasing temperatures in the U.S. and increasing interest in a warm weather vacation to somewhere such as the Caribbean or Mexico (maybe not Florida). Or maybe it knows plenty in the country are looking to get away this winter. The carrier launched a sale for travel to its Caribbean destinations this morning, with fares starting as low as $44.
