Weekend Travel for Working People

Most of my fare alerts are from Airfarewatchdog, but it's turned out to be not so helpful because of the booking and dates restrictions. Most of the fares are for travel this week leaving on Saturday and returning on Monday or Tuesday.

I usually require at least 2 weeks or more notice to schedule a day off, so 90% of my weekend travel is leaving after 6pm Friday and returning before Monday 6am. Is there any way I can automatically be sent fare alerts for all upcoming weekends to a few airports with these restrictions? I know fare alerts with Bing will do this but not necessarily with those times in place, and not recurring alerts.

The airlines often have weekend fares, so sign up for their fare alerts too. You may not be able to specify which airport you want to go from, but there are not usually that many to have to look through.

Lastminute at http://us.lastminute.com/uslm/index.html is another place that may occasionally offer you some great deals for last minute travel.

The airlines often post weekend fares, but it's usually for flights leaving on Saturday and returning on Monday/Tuesday. Most of the last minute fares, especially on a site like airfarewatchdog, meet this criteria. Their overall value for me at least is minimal.

What I'm looking more for is something like rules-based fare alerts. Does this exist anywhere?
