This week our favorite fee-free airline, Southwest, launched a fare sale that includes holiday travel. The Winter special offers one-way tickets for $49-109 (Monday-Thursday and Saturday) or $59-159 (Friday and Sunday). You must book your ticket by midnight tonight (Nov. 13) and travel between Dec. 2, 2008, and Feb. 11, 2009.
That time period frames the holidays just perfectly, so if you were skipping the family gathering this year because of escalated airfare, this may be an opportunity to reconsider. And that ski trip you were on the fence about? Seems like you may be able to afford it, after all.
