Southwest and Airtran 72 hours sale

Posted on June 12, 2013 by in Travel Deals

This is likely to be the biggest Southwest + Airtran sales during 2013 summer. The cliche is that this sale is actually for fall season from August 26 – December 18, 2013

– $49.00 one way for flights 0-500 miles in distance
– $99.00 one way for flights between 501 – 1,250 miles in distance
– $129.00 one way for flights between 1,250 – 1,750 miles in distance
– $149.00 one way for flights 1,751+ miles in distance

Might's takes:
– Even though this sale is for non-stop flight only, I see Southwest drop prices of many other flights as well. I was able to get a one-way ticket to Seattle from Austin for $121 (not a non-stop flight)
– Furthermore, other airlines such as United and Delta are matching prices to compete with Southwest. There are flights from Houston to Tampa/Orlando on United for $99. San Francisco to Las Vegas on United for $49 one way.
– If you have a Southwest companion pass or planning to get it soon, this would be a killer deal.
