Because a Simple Vacation Is No Longer Enough; From Nacation to Staycation, Cheapflights Covers Them All

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - As the turn of the decade nears, it's time to look back at the changing vernacular of our industry and to align our favorite terms with the airlines that best represent them. These vacation and travel terms have become an enduring part of pop culture. Cheapflights celebrates the creativity of the industry and the airlines that bring these vacation options to life.

Without further ado, the Top 10 goes to:

Staycations: Cheapflights gives this one to JetAmerica which went under practically before it even sold one flight. While some people choose to stay home, JetAmerica didn't even give consumers a choice.

Babymoon: Delta wins this, hands down, for offering new routes to romantic destinations (think Hawaii, the Caribbean) in an effort to promote romance among couples on what might be their last vacation for a long time once the stork delivers.

Mancation: The box office hit, "The Hangover," takes mancations to the extreme. Southwest is the top Mancation airline for offering numerous direct routes to "man friendly" Las Vegas, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Fort Myers.

Procreation Vacation: Singapore Airlines takes the booty on this one. Some flights have beds and rumors claim you can make your "mile high" dreams come true.

Ex-cation: Heartbreak hotel? Hop a last minute flight to make your ex jealous and get away from the drama. Cheapflights.com named Airtran as the Ex-cation airline with many routes at affordable prices so you can easily make a last-minute escape.

Spacecation: Virgin Atlantic takes the prize as its CEO Richard Branson claims that flights to space will be available as early as 2011.

Nacation: Air New Zealand takes this term for getting frisky with their ad campaign featuring flight attendants clad with body paint sans real clothes. They also offer matchmaking flights for single travelers to meet potential partners in-flight.

Kidcation: JetBlue is fun to fly and makes for a kid-friendly flight! Blue chips, TVs, and fun flight attendants help JetBlue fliers entertain children. JetBlue also offers routes to many kid-friendly destinations such as Orlando and San Diego.

Girlfriend Getaway: Virgin America helps girls who just want to have fun! Virgin America has your own personal manservant RED who handles your every request. Disco balls and tequila in flight help get your party started.

Rejuvenation Vacation: American Airlines is perfect for the relaxing vacation. With direct routes to dozens of warm weather destinations, you can be relaxed and rejuvenated before you remember you were stressed.

"Travel is fun, and I'm thrilled to see so many people embracing the creative side of travel by planning girlfriend getaways and kidcations. The best part is there's an airline for every angle, and we're excited to see where these airlines take us next," said Melanie Nayer, senior site editor, Cheapflights.com.
