To those of you who grumbled about SW's $59 fare sale, they were fined $200k for the deceptive ads. They had a $59 sale but no seats were available at that price from certain cities. https://news.yahoo.com/southwest-fined-200-000-deceptive-tv-ads-211048277.html;_ylt=A0SO80O6C45T4mEApz9XNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTE0MTg1YjE2BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMTAEY29sbwNncTEEdnRpZANTTUU1MzhfMQ-- "Southwest Airlines is being fined $200,000 for advertising a fare sale too good to be true. The U.S. Department of Transportation said Thursday that in TV ads last October the airline promised flights from Atlanta to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles for just $59 — but didn't make any seats available at that price. The government said that Southwest's ads were deceptive and violated rules on advertising of airline fares. Southwest was also required to pay an extra $100,000 that had been suspended after a similar offense last year". Nah, $200k is a drop in the bucket to them. And the $59 special wasn't available from most cities IMHO. :Þ They keep having these $59 sales but you hardly see $59 rates during the "sale".
