    It's a great deal for some of us.

    Blackout Dates include travel to/from the following airports:
    New Orleans flights from Jan. 17 through Jan.21, 2013, and Jan. 31 through Feb. 14, 2013.
    Las Vegas flights Jan. 10 through Jan 14, 2013, Jan. 17 through Jan. 21, 2013, and Jan. 31 through Feb. 14, 2013.
    Washington Reagan National (DCA), Washington Dulles (IAD), and Baltimore-Washington (BWI) Jan. 17 through Jan. 23, 2013.


    Figures! I'm flying to Vegas Jan 14th and leaving the 17th. :poke:
    Guess I'm going on Allegiant then. :grrr:

    I read that United and AA are matching the fares. When I checked United it was $70 cheaper for some days, YMMV. I was looking out of Pittsburgh.

    Good luck

    It was virtually impossible to book anything on that sale.

    I did book an overnight round trip on 1/25. Lady Gaga is at MGM Grand that night and my host can comp me a ticket and a room. So, at $116 round trip, I'll take it!

    will be there Jan 17-21 so my dates are excluded from this sale..

    lucky for me I was able to book flights using credit card points on Delta..

    I'll have to make sure to NOT schedule the next trip on a holiday weekend!!
     
    We're booked - hope we can keep this trip!!!

    Been waiting to book my yearly use CES as an excuse to go to Vegas trip on Allegiant and glad I did, this sale got me better prices WITH bags. Yeah it's not nonstop but Allegiant is really a pain and now PAY for carryon...really pumped to hit Vegas on Southwest.
