It's a Tuesday, so like clockwork Southwest Airlines is back with another one of their nationwide sales! One-way tickets are available for as low as $39 or $78 roundtrip on interisland Hawaii flights, and domestic flights across the continental 48 start at $98 roundtrip.
We're seeing some substantial price drops on routes that the low-cost-carrier doesn't usually include in their regular weekly sales, so make sure to have a look and see what other destinations are being marked down.

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 Atlanta ATL on Wednesday, January 22, returning from Nashville BNA on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, for $98 roundtrip.
