Southwest Airlines found its website immobilized Wednesday after advertising one-way tickets for as little as $49 as part of a three-day sale. Airline spokeswoman Brandy King blamed the site’s performance issues, which made it impossible to book a trip, on “response from customers” who were keen to take advantage of the airlines summer sale.
At the time of reporting, the issue had yet to be resolved. Southwest issued an update via Twitter Wednesday afternoon, assuring followers: “All hands are on deck to resolve site issues.”
The three-day summer sale ends Thursday. Discounted tickets are only available on select routes for travel between Aug. 24 and Dec. 16.
