    Just an FYI that Southwest has a sale right now. I just booked a round trip flight from Seattle to Las Vegas for a $101 dollars... Total.

    All I had to do was click on the sale link at the top of their main page.

    That's the think with Southwest sales. This is the first time I've tried one and gotten a killer deal. It is 100% dependent on what cities to cities they decide to include.

    My Vegas flights never fluctuate by more than a few bucks.

    Thats the beauty of Southwest. Lower fares can be obtained without penalty. I booked Buffalo to Vegas for 3/16 for $211.00. Last week it went down to 179.00. Called SWAIR person, gave her my conf #, rebooked and $32.00 my que for next trip! fares have been extremly high however i know with SWA Tuesday and Weds. are best/cheapest days to travel! Dollar for dollar, SWAIR is the best airlines (IMHO) going!!

    Bwatson....There currently some SWA flights from Midway to/from Las Vegas for 118 each way in March. Just saying! https://www.southwest.com/flight/shortcut/select-flight.html?fromShowItinerary=1&int=

    Wed-Sun from Minneapolis was $500+

    Sale fail. As usual these occur for cities with heavy competition on certain routes.

    Thanks for the tip. They have some good prices out of ATL, as low as $109 one-way.

    Now if you can just convince my wife that we need to go in April for my birthday.

    I always seem to have a hard time finding deals from either Chicago airports. I have no idea why! I can only find deals last minute, but last minute doesn't always work with my schedule.

    I checked this morning when I got an e-mail saying last day of sale and the tickets were over $350.00 each DTW to LAS. I paid $285.00 in November.

    these airfare threads almost need to be subdivided into 2 groups- peak cost (Thurs-Sun) and non-peak (Sun-Thurs)

    I booked a friend a few months back on southwest for our end of march trip, was $454.96 round trip from new orleans, had some gift cards i won a few years back so got the flight for $329.96, not bad but a few weeks ago the price dropped so I got a $73 credit to use for a future trip, checked last night and the price went up about $80
