    Not sure if this will work or not but...

    Bravofly.com is displaying fares for Southwest flights all over the US for under $100 AI (most under $20). It only works on some select dates, but from most all WN destinations. The system will change your requested date to the cheapest day.

    I just booked EWR-LAX R/T for $12 AI.

    A pretty good deal...
    Hope it works!

    From what I'm finding on the internet, it's a scam site.

    Really? I've booked with them before, and everything has been fine.

    If anybody calls the airlines they're gonna get stab in the face :)

    I think they take your booking (and your money) but you have to wait for a successful confirmation from the airline. So far I've booked one trip ($50 total for 2 tickets LGA / MDW) so we'll see.

    FLL and LAS are showing the same prices.

    Seems too good to be true, how is SWA appearing in any external third party booking system? I was able to duplicate mjones' EWR-LAX find as well as finding a few other popular SWA city pairs. The dates don't work for travel I need/ can use so I am likely out. Good luck to those that find something and use a credit card with good consumer protection.

    This is what I'm wondering myself. Never heard of any online booking search engines that allowed you to purchase WN tickets.

    Did some more clicking and actually found something I could use, I got through to the booking screen and found it would have a 8 Euro credit card fee/admin fee, as the fare I am looking at is $50 from known channels I am not going to gamble to save $15.

    For those that have bigger fares to shrink it seems that it will offer up the low 10/20 Euro fares on any SWA route but only if booked as a roundtrip. My earlier issues were with booking oneways.

    The Citi Thank You Network (via Connexion) shows and allows you to book SWA, albeit at an inflated rate.

    As expected, just received my first cancellation email.

    Figured it might not work but what's the worse that could happen? :)

    Your credit card number is compromised and your email address is sold to anyone and everyone.

    Just booked DTW-BUR for 20 EURO. Did anyone receive confirmation?
    The cancelations you have received - what do they say?

    Yeah pretty sure WN does not ever do outside ticketing, AFAIK.

    Did anyone get an actual ticket from WN on this deal? Most of mine are canceled, 2 still show "to be confirmed"

    Nothing here. My guess is that they showed as 10 euro mostly because they can't actually book with Southwest, so it was only showing their cost. Then when they noticed that they couldn't actually book they cancelled them.

    Mine still shows this, as well.
    I can only hope for the best, but I'm confident it was probably a glitch on their part.
