Forgotten to book tickets home to see the family over Thanksgiving? Or maybe you just have the sudden urge to skip town over the holidays. With this brief but beautiful deal from Virgin America, you can book  First Class or Main Cabin Select seats for 50 percent off regular fares.

The offer is valid for only two days, expiring at 11:59pm PT on November 20, and is valid only for travel between November 21 and November 30. To book, go to the Virgin America website and enter BESTSEATS into the promo code box. We found a round-trip flight in First Class leaving New York on November 27 and returning from Los Angeles on November 29 for $1,438; without the promo code the fare would be $2,854. In Main Cabin Select, the cost would be $562 ($1,102 without the promo code).

Virgin America's Main Cabin Select service offers 38" of seat pitch, unlimited complimentary cocktails and snacks, an all-access pass to in-flight media content (including free movies and premium TV like HBO and Showtime), priority security access/boarding, dedicated overhead bin space and one free checked bag. In First Class you also get plush white leather seating with 55 inches of pitch, 165 degrees of recline, and lumbar massagers - but, for the difference in price, we actually think that Main Cabin Select offers the best value.

In addition to the flight sale, Virgin America is launching a Buy One Get One Free offer for passes ($40) to the Virgin America Loft at LAX (where you'll find  a cocktail bar, food menu, and free WiFi) for visits between November 19 and December 31.
