The crazy good fares seem to be available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays in January and February 2015. Southwest makes it easy to find their best fares by using the “Low Fare Calendar” found on southwest.com, while fares on American can be searched on aa.com or searchable using the ITA Software Matrix Airfare Search. Also, since these are one-way fares, and if you are willing to be flexible, you could take one carrier down, and the other carrier back.
It’s a great time to get out of the cold of Chicago and into sunny Florida during the winter months. It’s been a while since I’ve seen fares this good, and I don’t know how long these fares are going to last, so definitely book quickly. Anybody able to book these amazing fares?
