Southwest fares drop below $100 round trip in 72-hour sale

Southwest rolled out a 72-hour, nationwide fare sale Tuesday (Oct. 13) in which the prices of its flights are roughly based on distance. Dozens of the carrier’s shortest routes are available for fares of less than $100 round trip. The sale covers domestic travel from Dec. 2 through Dec. 16 and from Jan. 5 through Feb. 10, but Friday and Sunday flights are excluded. Additional day-of-the-week restrictions apply for flights to Florida, Nevada and Puerto Rico.

Still, for customers who can navigate schedule restrictions, the sale drops fares to less than $100 round trip on many U.S. routes. But bargain hunters must act quick; the sale concludes at the end of the day Thursday (Oct. 15).
