    Yeah I've noticed that too... southwest is doing flights providence to vegas for $128 up till june..... and I checked on kayak and delta and us airways seem to be following suit. I wonder if they are all doing that to compete with southwest's current special.

    I'm seeing exactly the opposite from Denver. Prices are at an all time high.

    How far out are you booking to get that rate? I got my ticket for 2/18 on 2/1 for $339 from Atlanta to Las Vegas. I could have gotten tickets as low as $269 a week earlier, but those were red eye flights with delta. I'd rather take good flight times with Southwest. Still curious as to what the sweet spot is for tickets. Seems to be one month out.

    you, in that outfit, hopefully :evillaugh

    I actually did American since I live near O'Hare, but my buddy who lives closer to Midway took Southwest for under $250. For direct flights during choice times like those we booked we have been paying $400+ for the past few years.

    Booked about 10 weeks in advance.

    I miss Nichel Night! The last time that I went, I was going to use condoms, but then thought to myself, "when am I ever going to be in Tiajuana again?

    They must have flagged your IP address after they found out what you did on your last trip.

    So for our June 10-13 trip, when would be a good time to find a cheap flight? Because right now even Southwest is high. :(

    Via Southwest I got Columbus to Vegas, nonstop both ways at times that I am very happy with, for under $250 round trip. Couldn't be happier, in past years the same flights have cost me a little over $400

    I would just keep an eye on it on a daily basis, that's what I do and it's very easy with the Southwest App if you have a smart phone. Once you see a price you're ok with, go for it. After that, continue to keep an eye on it. If the price drops, sign in to your Southwest account, rebook it and Southwest will give you a voucher for the difference to be used on your next flight(s). Note: this is not a 'refund,' it's only usable on Southwest. I have flown Southwest exclusively for awhile so I can't be of help with other airlines. Hope this helps out a little :beer:
