    I've been monitoring SW for an August trip. Yes I know it's March, but you never know what you'll find or when. I like to look at the whole monthly calendar if I don't have set dates in mind. Today I found fares well under $100 O/W from DCA. Times were a little later than we normally like to leave, but I'm not stupid. $78 each O/W. And now those same tickets are back up to $174. There are still several under $100 fares for July and August. Worth checking if it fits your schedule.

    Nice job finding such a great deal. In my experience, southwest typically isn't the cheapest if you have a set schedule and are trying to book flights to fit into that schedule. However, if you have some flexibility (such as you looking at the whole month), then you can usually find really good deals for them that will save you some money.

    I've been watching for my October trip and sadly prices went way up last night. Round trip from MHT to LAS is $525 Ouch, ouch, ouch. Oh well it's still early hoping I can catch it for $300 as I check multiple times daily...

    I experienced the same. Wasn't 100% sure on my plans but had been loosely monitoring flights. Tickets had been available for $144 but randomly jumped to $328+ yesterday. RT end up costing about $450 instead of sub $300

    Really has nothing to do with this thread but I didn't want to start a new one. This is a question I've had for a while and just never bothered to look for the answer. Would rather argue about it with Jim. LOL

    How are the Early Bird positions determined? Is it based on when I check-in or when I purchased the plane ticket?

    Neither. Customers who have purchased Anytime Fares will receive priority over Customer’s who purchase Early Bird with other fare types. Boarding positions are assigned based on the time stamp of the EarlyBird Check-In purchase relative to passengers within the same fare class.
