Yep. So far got nothing. Even checked the app to double check. Hopefully starts before meetings get going today.

There's a back door. Choose a one-way flight on 11-02. Edit the URL to change 11-02 to your desired date. It will book.

Just booked 11/22 through low fare calendar option. I don't see December available yet though.

Wanna Get Away fares to Hawaii outbound I am not even sure existed haha. Got the return at least. Good grief

I had noticed something fishy (the backdoor) when messing around but didn't use it/realize how to use it. My mistake.

Looks like we are getting some special holiday only destinations...

FLL gets SDF and CLE holiday week Saturday’s only
BHM is Sunday only for apparently the duration of the schedule.

Haven't dug into it but it looks like ORF gets SAN presumably for the holidays as well.

Was hopeful with booking decent priced holiday travel as soon as calendar was uploaded, I was disappointed in super high airfare.
In past years I was able to get good prices as soon as schedule went up, but today I am shocked.
Found nothing within my budget.
Do fares actually go down after a few hours?
I know, makes no sense, but that is what I hope for.

Seeing the same thing for a Christmas trip to Mexico. Only Anytime fares right now, and they're higher than every competing nonstop. I hope they release WGA fares soon.

Same. Was able to get outbound cheap flight by moving a day, but there were no get away fares available for return, and I was refreshing every minute till they were available for booking
