Airtran systemwide 48 hour sale

Fares from Washington DC:

    Airtran is having a systemwide sale but you must book by Friday May 11 with a 10-day advance purchase and travel through Nov. 13. Fares range from $39 to $144 one-way and there's no round-trip purchase required. Airtran's higher priced routes are not always the cheapest even during a sale, but sometimes they're the best value if they fly the route nonstop.

    • Lowest advertised fares are valid for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and additional sale fares are available for travel on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
    • Blackout dates are: May 24, 25 and 28; June 28, 29 and 30; July 1, 3, 7, 8 and 9; and September 3, 2007, for all markets.
    Business class is also on sale. And here's a little known fact: you can upgrade from even the lowest Airtran fares on a standby basis for between $40 to $140 each way, or for the same prices in advance from full "Y" coach fares.
