    They're running the same $49 / $99 / $129 / $149 sale they've run the last few years, which covers travel to Atlanta during ProgPower... however, apparently this has sparked such high demand that their website has slowed to a near-halt. Looks like the deal is only available through Southwest's website, not through any 3rd-party travel websites. Unlike years past, no other airline has matched them (yet), and the last few years, this deal has worked out to a round-trip flight for $98 for me... so I guess I'll keep trying today and tomorrow.

    SkiBumMSP and I bought our tickets on Tuesday when I saw the sale. We saved $55 on round trip tickets.

    We didn't have any trouble, but I got an alert almost when the sale went into effect (I subscribed to two different websites and informed me of the sale). Sounds like word got around and everybody took advantage of their sale (as low as $49 each way).

    Glad we bought our tickets when we did, as I heard of the same issues you had described.

    Unfortunately for me, I will probably have to drive from Louisville to Atlanta. It isn't covered by the sale when I looked yesterday, as it is still $400 round trip.

    It seems pretty much the only thing on sale for Louisville is Chicago and Washington DC.........

    Got mine for $162 roundtrip yesterday! Probly half of what I usually pay, but I hate Southwest, so it could be a shitty day. On the other hand, at least its not United haha

    Just booked for cheaper than most years. I've never flown SW before so we'll see what happens.

    I ALWAYS fly Southwest if possible..
    Never a problem if you make sure you check in early(pr pay the extra 12.50 per flight for even more priority)

    And yeah...friends don't let friends fly United or Spirit

    Course, it had to be a time where I was either sick as a dog or busy as hell. Fortunately, prices still seem to be holding up today.
