Cheapest Flights?

It looks like the cheapest fares aren’t sub-$40 this time like they have been in the past. The cheapest tickets can be found on Las Vegas – Los Angeles and vice versa. That’s pretty short flight, but if you’re heading to either city, it could be a good buy. Remember that you won’t pay for bags should you decide to check them on Southwest.

Additionally, Southwest is generally fee-free, but if you want to be the one of the first to board, you can always opt for Early Bird check-in.

Conclusion

The other thing to do (as Dan has pointed out before) with these Southwest fare sales is to check your existing bookings.  Because of Southwest’s amazing cancellation policy, there is no penalty for changing your flight if the price goes down.
