Just noticed some 'E' fare availability out of MSP. Notably, MSP-LAS, MSP-TPA, MSP-RSW, MSP-MCO, and MSP-FLL. First time I recall seeing anything other than DTW to Florida routes (and a few international routes than seem to have come and gone).
With the $200 domestic change fee on non-refundable fares, the main difference is the non-reserved seats. If you buy a 'V' fare on these routes, there's not going to be much value left if you change/cancel them.

I fly to FLL 2 times a month - it is pretty standard for fares to drop in November and then in Dec they add 2 additional nonstops a day so availability goes up. Still, I do not recall ever seeing the E fare!
