Southwest Airlines is back again this week with another nationwide 3-day sale. Tickets starting at $49 one-way or $98 roundtrip and the low-cost carrier recently extended its booking calendar into March 2020, so there's a lot of wide-open seat availability for winter escapes.
Over 4,400 routes are seeing discounts, so something is bound to catch your eye to get you up in the sky.
Sale fares are valid for travel on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturdays starting in mid-September through March 4, 2020.

These are the advertised sale fares. Some routes have lower fares than advertised.
Sale fares include a carry-on bag, a personal item, and two free checked bags up to 50lbs/23kg each.
Southwest has an open seating policy, which means there are no assigned seats, and you'll get to choose your place during boarding. The order of boarding is determined by the time of check-in, so check-in exactly 24 hours before departure or pay for priority boarding for a better choice of seat.
Searching Southwest's website, I found seats departing Nashville BNA on Wednesday, September 25, with a return flight from Atlanta ATL on Saturday, September 28, 2019, for $98 roundtrip.
