Yea, when I saw the price in my RSS feed, I assumed it was a ticket to Israel or s/t similar.
I never would have thought that tix to Florida would be so pricey from NYC.
esp with avios.
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Pesach is heavy season, and it's not unheard of for prices to be $600+.

That being said, one would HOPE that someone about to blow MINIMUM $1000 on a purchase (plus $500 per kid) would put in at a bare minimum thirty seconds to look on kayak.
One would hope... ::)

You guys are being way too harsh.
A nonstop from LGA to MIA on those dates is $735 on DL and $886 on AA.
A nonstop from LGA to FLL is $618 or $698.

I don't know anything about flights - I'm just thinking it may be a good idea to have options of what deals you want to follow. Most of the Deal sites have this option and I'm sure it would make things easier for some people and probably bring you more followers as well.

The major deal sites have hundreds of employees and IT folks to implement things like that.
All I'm doing is using a simple plugin that tweets my posts.

-1. It won't bring more followers. People don't say, hey did you hear about DD? You can get Twitter alerts for only the type of deals you want! It may prevent people from unfollowing once they try it, but even for that I doubt it matters.

I apologize I just took a quick look at this
 
You might be crazy to fly on those exact dates but if so not a terrible deal. My bad.

Can I suggest a simple solution to our current "problem" of tweeting  out the advertisements, just ad the word "AD" in the beginning of the tweet to distinguish between deals and ads. I don't mind getting the ads and I have benefited from them, but I wish I knew right away if a  tweet is a deal or an ad.

Fair enough. Generally ads aren't tweeted though they are sometimes.

I'm not sure why this one got so much hate other than people are ignorant about the cost of these flights.  Frankly it's a very good deal.

I am a RSS subscriber to DD, not Twitter, but the same deal applies. Often the headline will draw me in, and then only afterwards I see it is an ad. If Dan were to add the word ad before the headline it would lose all effect. As an advertiser, I wouldn't be too happy about that. If anything, "ad" should be written AFTER the headline.

Almost every free web based service or mobile app comes with ads. It's the nature of the beast. That Dan has it so prominently displayed before the ad starts is more than enough -IMHO.

Somtimes ppl will step away from a good deal just because it's an "ad"  and he won't let him self be "ripped off" by that advertised deal...

Just a little joke. Maybe not a great one, but a joke nonetheless.
