If peak season fares will keep you grounded this summer, here’s some great news: Southwest and AirTran have kicked off a decent late summer/early fall fare sale, but you’ve got to act fast. That’s because the sale only lasts 72-hours and only a handful of seats on each plane are selling at the discounted prices. Here are the specifics:
>Travel dates: Travel must take place between Monday, August 13 and Wednesday, November 14.
>Roundtrip fares range from $100 to $280 roundtrip (all in), based on flight length. For travel up to 500 miles, fares are $100 round trip. For travel 501 to 1,300 miles, fares are $200 round trip. For travel 1,301 or more miles, fares are $280 round trip. (Fares are available one-way.)
>Sale fares are NOT available on Fridays or Sundays. Blackout dates: Aug. 18, Aug. 30, Sept. 3, and Sept. 4, 2012.
>I expect Delta and other carriers to match most of these fares, so shop around if you don’t find the fare you want.
>Based on what we’ve seen fare-wise this summer, these are some great deals. Sample roundtrip AirTran fares from ATL include:
$100: Charlotte, Dayton, Jacksonville, Memphis, Orlando, St Louis
$200: Austin, Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Washington DC
$280: Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle
