    I have been watching SWA fares for the last couple of months for Superbowl weekend. I was ready to throw in the towel, but they dropped today, about $60 round-trip. $292 rt!

    Thats awesome Ron... I did see that even today, they have some pretty good deals going on too!

    Our return flight still hasnt come down.... I blame it on the holiday travel. I ended up paying more to come home from vegas then I did for the roundtrip flight we took in September!

    WOW, are you serious?? I was worried the Superbowl would keep prices held high for that weekend, I am happy with the $292! I consider anything under $300 a bargain! Southwest is such a grind, you just gotta keep watching and watching!!

    Flying out of Dallas (Love Field) on Feb 3 (SB Sunday) and return Thursday noon-ish...109 $ each way but used points so it came out to about 10,900 pts total....no charge on taxes / fees I suppose.....We get there at about 10 in the a.m. with plenty of time to get ready for the game. Love SW....good luck to you!!

    Are you flying out of Columbus or CAK? $292 is a nice price.

    I've been watching flights from Cleveland for the last 2 months for our March Madness trip. The flights out finally came "down" from $360 to $273 :rolleyes:. The only available return flight is still $360. So the total is $633 RT.

    We are currently booked out of DTW for $297 RT and both flights are NS.

    Unless CLE comes down to around $400 RT, we will be flying out of DTW and making the 2.5 hr drive.

    Cle to las has been just insane. Cak hasn't been much better lately. Some good/decent days. Great if I want to fly out and never return. Our flight out was 128. Returning we ended up at 253. Good thing free rooms help equal it all out

    Southwest

    We just booked our Southwest Flight for June 2013 the rates are really good from Phila PA for 2 people roundtrip a total of $553.00 when in Sept 2012 we went to Vegas got tickets in Jan 2012 and the cost was 825.00. What a savings we got this time.
    Can't believe it Vegas here we come

    I guess I will now stop complaining about airfare!! I have been flying from Columbus Oh to Sin City for the past four years, three or four times annually. The highest I have ever paid is $380!!

    It is usually in the $300 to $360 range. Now I see why lots of you dont go three or four times a year!!
