Price war going on between PHX and DEN that involves the usual suspects but I really think Spirit airlines is at the heart of the battle. You can find $88 round trips on USAIR/AA

This fare is actually widely available especially through February. I'm doing a weekend at the start of March. Great fare.

US: PHL to LAS (rt) $214

Example date: March 28th to 29th (lots of different availability)

About 4.9 cpm and in general a great price for a 4.5-5.5 hour flight.

I posted this in another thread, but basically any major airport in Florida to Seattle is <$300 rt for the next few months on DL, UA, and US. Lowest ive seen is $260. It doesnt matter if its a same say turnaround or a 1 wk trip.
