It's Southwest sale time this Thanksgiving week, and the airline is taking shots at its competitors with its newest nationwide sale. Offering a little "basic" compassion, Southwest is referring to almost every other airline in America shifting toward the Basic Economy model. Southwest still allows two free checked bags and charges no fees for changing your flight, something to be thankful for.
