The Big Deal about this Southwest offer of $49-$99 one-way fares to most of the carrier's destinations is that it is for travel any day of the week. Typically, such sales limit travel to Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
Here's the deal: You must book before Jan. 27 online for travel through March 11, and a 14-day advance purchase is required. For all the details: http://"> details head to the website.
A new development: The AP is reporting that American and Continental say they are matching the Southwest fares. And Delta has just posted a systemwide fare sale on its website that runs through Monday -- same as the Southwest sale.
I just love competition. Don't you?
