Need another shot at LUV? Southwest Airlines is setting up a second date with a lovely fare sale similar to the carrier's Valentine deals posted earlier this month. Fares start as low as $39 one-way on Interisland Hawaii flights, and continental travel starts at $49 one-way or $98 roundtrip for travel through May.

As always, many routes have lower unadvertised fares available than what Southwest advertises, and you'll often find much lower displayed prices in markets that compete with ultra-low-cost carriers — many are under or close to $100 roundtrip.

Travel Availability

  • Travel Period: Now through May 20, 2020, with a 21-day advance purchase for continental U.S. travel.
  • Travel Days of the Week:  Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays for most routes. See info below for different travel days for specific markets.
  • Blackout Dates: None listed.

Departures to Las Vegas and select Florida airports are available Sunday through Wednesday; Travel from Las Vegas and certain cities in Florida is valid Tuesday through Friday.

Routes outside the continental U.S. may require a 21-day advance purchase. Interisland Hawaiian fares are valid for travel Mondays through Thursdays. Tickets to/from San Juan, Puerto Rico are valid Mondays through Thursdays, through March 5, and April 14 - May 14, 2020.

Baggage

Sale fares include a carry-on bag, a personal item, and two free checked bags up to 50lbs/23kg each.

Seat Assignments

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.

Example Booking

Searching Southwest's website, I found seats departing Albany ALB on Tuesday, April 21, returning from Orlando MCO on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, for $198 roundtrip.
