    True. However, still impossible to get on the site.

    They need to cancel the sale, it is nothing but a complete fail since the website does not work. Iv been trying to confirm my son is checked in for his flight tomorrow (we bought EB) and I am unable to do so. Im not going to be happy if I get to the airport and find out his EB did not work.

    The sale is a joke -- it really isn't any cheaper for me -- I just want to buy my tickets before it gets higher. Guess I'll just wait until the "sale" is over. I may be looking at frontier since American Express will cover the baggage fees.

    Shall I continue the griping and the pain?! OK. What good is having a RR number, booking a flight, when they can not process my request (can't login to my rapid rewards) to login. Yeesh!

    I got lucky too and got something booked before it went down, but I wasn't done shopping! :mad: I can only imagine what a nightmare it has turned into for people who have flights the next day or two, like IWannaBeInVegas said.

    They've gotta be getting hacked or something right? Can't believe a mediocre sale would just cause a huge traffic increase to cripple the servers.

    I was able to book a trip from SMF to LAS on Tuesday morning without any trouble and changed the outbound flight on Wednesday morning to a later departure. I was pretty tempted to book another trip at these prices, but by mid-morning on Wednesday the system was down...probably a good thing as I would have saved myself enough money to go deeper in debt.

    For the last week I have been checking prices for a trip to Vegas in Sept. The fares for my flights are the same as when I booked back in April. I do not expect hat they will go any lower
    Again, with Southwest, if you see a price that you like, you better book it.

    There's no way the sale is what is causing the site issues.

    All seems to be working this morning...can check prices... and was able to change flights for a few of my friends. Still waiting for price to drop on a "going" flight from Nashville...but there is still time so I have faith. However, I am not able to view the "low fare calendar"
