Want a spring escape? Southwest Airlines has launched a three-day sale from Tuesday through Thursday with airfares based on the length of travel. Tickets are good for travel from April 3 through June 8, with some blackout dates.
Cutely called the LUV sale (anyone else already sick of Valentine’s Day marketing allusions?) nonstop one-way fares on Southwest, or its subsidiary Air Tran, vary from $49 to $149 based on the length of travel. (For travel up to 500 miles, fares are $49 one-way; for more than 1,500 miles it’s $149).
Some sample one-way fares: Seattle to Vegas, Reno or Oakland starts at $89; Seattle to L.A. starts at $123; Seattle to Denver costs from $119.
