For travel over Labor Day Weekend, fly nonstop from New York to San Francisco for $299 roundtrip on Delta.
I found tickets for this price departing New York JFK on Friday night, August 30 (arriving just after midnight), returning from San Francisco SFO on a red-eye flight Tuesday, September 3 (arriving Wednesday morning).
Other flight times are available for $100-$200 more and you'll find lower fares for non-holiday travel.
This fare includes a carry-on bag plus one small personal item. A checked bag costs $30 each way.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for this Basic Economy price.
Upgrading to Delta's Main Cabin fare will cost $70 more, or $369 roundtrip. This includes standard advanced seat selection and allows upgrades/ticket changes (fee applies). The first checked bag fee is the same $30 each way.
