Airtran and Southwest are running a flight distance based sale as follows:
-Purchase by 02/07.
-Travel valid every day except Sundays.
-$49 each way for flights 0-500 miles
-$89 each way for flights 501-1,000 miles
-$119 each way for flights 1,001-1,500 miles
-$149 each way for flights 1,501+ miles
Personally though I’m more excited about the major airlines that are matching these fares as I prefer flying nonstop and earning more valuable miles. United had been charging $532 yesterday for nonstop flights from Cleveland to Kansas City, today for 04/08-04/15 for example it can be had for just $198. Tons of other ticket prices have come tumbling down as well.
With Google Flights you can type in your origin city and find destinations based on your travel dates. Or read about using ITA Software to use their awesome month-long calendar search to help find dates with cheap flights.
While Google and ITA won’t sell you flights you can just plugin the info on a site like Orbitz or Priceline and book it there. Plus those sites give until 11pm or 11:30pm respectively the day after you book to cancel for free.
