    :sad2: Well.... they had a sale on my flights to ABQ...and I missed it :sad2: I had forgotten their sales start on Tuesdays and I was outside snowblowing this morning after I took the kids to the bus stop. :cold: There apparently is a big sale for Albuquerque and if I had gotten the sale prices on the day we can travel, I would have saved about $335... but I missed it! We really cannot travel any other day, so are we out of luck, or will they possibly have another sale on these same flights? Any chance? Thanks in advance for any info..............P

    SW site says the sale for ABQ (I live in Rio Rancho, just outside) is thru midnight Thursday 2/24. If the flights show "unavailable", my experience has been they don't usually become "available" again. From what I've read/heard, they sell off a certain number of seats in each price tier and once they are gone, they are gone.

    Some flights have few if any of the deeply discounted seats available. Non-stop peak flights tend to have fewer (in some cases none) of the deeply discounted seats.

    You might check every so often. If bookings for your flight don't go as expected SW might free up a few seats. Only look for one seat at a time. If only one discounted seat is available and you ask for 4 it won't show the availability of the discounted seat.

    You may have to decide what's more important flight time/day/non-stop vs price.

    Oh well.... I figured as much. And it makes me a little mad at myself. I could have flown Delta for a few dollars less.... but I figured I would catch at sale at SWA and end up with a nice credit for our January trip. Live and learn!....P

    If you're looking for a credit check for flights the night before, flights into Tampa and consider a connecting flights. Always check looking for one pax at a time.
