WN sale: $49, $89 etc. Matches?

http://travel.southwest.com/specialo...l?id=118711972

Anyone sees matches to this sale? Hidden cities?

Not yet. I'm more than happy to be able to fly the $49 routes for only 2,280 RR 2.0 points (Chase UR transfers into SW at a 1:1 ratio). That low redemption rate also makes it quite easy and cheap to position yourself for MR's from other cities.

Yes, it seems like a good value.

Also....I do see G class economy fares on UA for $49 each way from CLE-BNA. It appears UA is starting to match. Keep your eye out for other city pairs!

Hidden city can be a treasure here . Something like ATL-ORD-BNA

I already booked my ticket--but will cancel if I get a US Air or UA match...still nothing though unfortunately. I do love when these sales come along--especially when you know you have to fly somewhere and there doesn't seem to be any good prices anywhere. If only this sale went through the end of June it would have been perfect.

I think there are some matches by UA and AA on some of the longer flights. I am finding fares filed by both carriers earlier today on routes like SAN-FLL-SAN. Not quite good enough for an MR though.

Looks like United has started matching.

Both United and Southwest are at $177.80 for Charleston (CHS) to Chicago (ORD/MDW)

Correction for DC to KC starting to match on UA, just not as wide open as Southwest. Definitely not MR worthy though for those searching for that...just good price.

For now, Delta is countering SWA's $49 nonstops ex-MSP with $70 fares. I have a voucher to burn so it is tempting but expect that Delta will match AA/UA if they go for a true match of SWA.

Tonight is calendar clearing only, tomorrow afternoon will be booking.
