Not for last-minute travel. It's actually exceptionally low by Midwest standards.

Because the Memorial Day travel weekend starts right after that, and the planes will be flying fuller, thus the sale not necessary.

$149 to MCI, MSP and OMA are not out of line.


MCI

Southwest is $165 each way with less than a week advance purchase, and with a week advance it is $123.

Fares are still better than Midway
WN MDW-MCI
$172 less than a week
$156 7 day advance


MSP and OMA

When I checked the AirTran site yesterday I was seeing $119 on certain flights to both cities. Today? AirTran has raised their fares to $149 each way for travel with less than a week advance purchase to match this.

WN MDW-OMA
$178 less thank a week
$138 7 day advance

WN MDW-MSP
$161 less than a week
$122 7 day advance
