These deals are all at prices below what we normally see. Some of these fares are a part of ongoing sales and some are unadvertised, which may only last a few hours. If you are interested in any of these fares, we recommend you book soon to avoid a missed bargain.
Fly nonstop from Nashville to Pensacola for $98 round-trip on Southwest. A great summer fare from Southwest's Sale of the Summer, which is valid for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through October. I was able to find seats departing Nashville BNA on Wednesday, July 18, returning from Pensacola PNS on Tuesday, July 24.
Skip the traffic on the 4-5 hour drive along Highway 1 and fly nonstop from Fort Lauderdale to Key West for $100 round-trip on Silver Airways. Travel is valid from September through November.

Fly nonstop from Houston Intercontinental airport to St. Louis for $157 round-trip on United. The major US carriers have all matched the latest Southwest sale on many routes.

I was able to find seats departing Houston IAH on Tuesday, July 3, returning from St. Louis STL on Tuesday, July 10. United's fare is basic economy and only includes one small personal item.
