New Southwest Sale: Travel through May, Nonstops Starting at $98 Roundtrip

It looks like daylight savings switch might've mixed up this week's timing of the Southwest Airlines sale too. The airline's usual Tuesday sale got posted today, a day earlier than normal. This nationwide sale is similar to one we saw last week and stretches out into the spring travel window of the airline's booking calendar.  Book soon to make sure you get the flights you want. Fares start at $98 roundtrip.

Pack all you want because Southwest is the only domestic airline that still allows two free checked bags, while the other airlines have upped bag fees to $30 each way. If you're indecisive, there's less to worry about with Southwest's no change fee policy. Learn more about Southwest's perks in our guide on How to Fly Southwest Airlines (And Get the Seat You Want).
