[08/18/2015 @ 3:37 PM] Most of the cheaper fares are gone. I’m only seeing them at the end of August and the start of September now.
[08/27/2015 @ 4:29 PM] Removed from deal list until more nonstop availability at this price return. It’s mostly gone.
Flight prices and availability can and will change. Airlines are fickle. This deal was valid at the time of the last update (see time-stamp above).
American and Southwest Airlines are offering round-trip flights from Dallas (DAL / DFW) to San Diego (SAN) for $118, NONSTOP. Cheapest flights are TUE/WED/SAT from August to November. Holiday Blackouts apply. Fare is reversible. See the Flight Details section of this post for example dates.
United is also matching, but their flights are NOT nonstop; they require a connection.
To save the most money, be sure to make use of the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post. Booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package will probably save you more money than if you were to book separately. Package options on Travelocity and Priceline are usually better than what the airlines offer on their website, so be sure to check other sites to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Priceline allow free cancellation before 10 PM CST the day after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy allows you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. After the grace period, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
United, Delta, JetBlue and Virgin America offer free cancellation within the next 24-hours while American allows you to “Hold” a ticket for 24-hours. Keep in mind that once you pay for a ticket on AA.com you can’t cancel it without a change fee or penalty, even if was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
Southwest never charges a change fee. If you cancel within 24-hours, your credit card charge will be reversed. If you cancel before your flight you will get a voucher worth the same amount you paid. The voucher isn’t transferable and expires after a year, but it’s better than paying a change fee.
Note that the DOT doesn’t enforce 24-hour free cancellation on tickets less than 7-days away from departure, so some airlines and OTAs allow it while some do not. On Orbitz, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancel” next to the price of the ticket.
