Transcontinental Flights For $220? Huh?

I got a call from a source today about some amazingly low fares to the West Coast.

“What?” I said. “You found what for a fare between Bradley and Seattle? Mom, you have to be kidding me!”

That’s right — $220 round trip, including all the taxes and fees, for Bradley to Seattle during September and October. That’s so low it makes absolutely no sense. lists other fares for just $20 to $40 more to several cities in California, including San Diego and Oakland, plus Denver and Las Vegas.

There was a time when I swore I’d never pay more than $250 for a round-trip cross-country ticket, but i thought those days were over.

Not quite yet … Of course these fares have restrictions. Advance purchase is required, etc. and blah, blah, blah. But really. Still. Damn. Wow.
