Southwest almost-systemwide sale

George Hobica, November 11, 2008
Fares from Washington DC:

    This is a two day sale. We say "almost" systemwide because Washington Dulles and Orange County/Santa Ana aren't included.

    Travel up until February school vacay, but you can be sure that peak holiday travel will be more expensive on most routes.

    Fares range from $49 to $159 each way, which, come to think of it, is pretty close to their normal fares. Book at Southwest.com.

    The fine print:

    Book by November 13 for travel December 2, 2008 - February 11, 2009.
    21-day advance purchase
    .

    Fares do not include federal excise tax of $3.50 per takeoff and landing, airport-assessed passenger facility charges (PFC) of up to $9, and government-imposed September 11th Security Fee of up to $5.00 one-way.
