$35/$65/$95/$125 winter fare sale

Details will show up in a couple hours, but looks like the big Southwest winter sale in most markets for early December, most of January, and the first half of February travel is about to get started for booking through this Thursday. Travel any day but Sunday and Dec 15-Jan 3 is blacked out. $35 short hauls, $65 mid hauls, $95 longer hauls and $125 longest hauls.

Wasn't expecting this to hit until Holloween.. sounds like the prices are going up $5 per one-way. Will be interesting to see the mileage spreads.


edit: It's on southwest.com:

http://www.southwest.com/html/promot...ROWOWSAL111018

35$ - 0-450 miles
65$ - 451-1000
95$ - 1001-1500
125$- 1501+


for comparisons sake, the thread on the Holloween sale 2010:

and from 2009:

Wow! Thanks for the great heads up on this one. I don't see it up on the website yet though.

I see what you mean; it's starting a week or so earlier this year. Even with the higher fares it's still a nice sale, especially since it covers most of the network and is good for 6 days a week (excludes Sundays.)

It's not fully up on the website quite yet... but you can see these sale fares in there if you hit the "Low Fare Calendar" (which sometimes mismatches the actual fares available at this time of night as fares start and expire.)

Southwest.com not emailing confirmations?

Hi,

I booked a $35 fare about 4 hours ago and still haven't received a confirmation email. The flights show up in My Southwest account. Anybody else notice a problem with confirmation emails this am?

Will do a couple inter-CA runs just to keep A-list, but this sale was a bigger deal pre-RR 2.

Nope not a problem receiving the email confirmation. Booked 5 flights this morning on this sale. I was excited.

Just booked today less than $50 round trip

SAN-LAS for early December. Not bad. Would have been great under RR1.0

Just booked SEA-DEN. Looks like AS and Frontier are matching the fares where they have same routes. However, the bag fees on the other airlines, had me go with SWA instead.
