Southwest has a new three-day sale. OK, make that a two-day sale because I missed the first day. I might have missed all three days if the Airfarewatchdog Blog not pulled me out of my stupor, as it so often does.
You must book by midnight Thursday for travel between Sept. 29 and Dec. 17 excluding, of course, the Thanksgiving holiday. Sample fares from Bradley include $49 each way to Baltimore and $122 each way to Fort Lauderdale. Nothing to Las Vegas or the West Coast, though.
The quoted fares don’t include taxes and fees, so the $49 Baltimore fare comes out to a total of $119, round trip. I’ve seen better from Southwest — I’m going to Baltimore for $20 less, round trip, next week on fares I bought in the previous sale. But availability looks pretty good this time around. The lowest fares seem to be available most days, though often on only the earliest and latest flights of the day.
