Yeah, yeah, another sale from Southwest. Great. $59 to Dayton. Terif. But, wait, don't be so jaded. This sale is different - it's a nationwide sale. That's right. Fly just about anywhere Southwest goes and save, save, save. Cheaper flights, $49-$109 one-way, are Mon-Thurs and Sat. Book your ticket by Thursday and travel Dec. 2- Feb.11.
I guess airlines are figuring out their planes are fuller when prices are lower. Or they're rolling in all that cheap oil. I don't know. The Los Angeles Times reported that American Airlines had nearly 800,000 fewer passengers in October than they did the same month last year.
Of course, if you don't have a job lower fares are not going to help. The economy has everyone tightening their spending, especially on luxuries like travel. And travel experts say holiday travelers who waited to get their plane tickets may find better bargains this winter. So here's to procrastination.
