With all the cold weather over the Winter months (except here in Southern California), a nice warm Southern trip is a good idea, and it's even better when it's to New Orleans.
Southwest is having a New Orleans fare sale. If you buy your ticket between November 16, 2008 and November 18, 2008 for travel December 3, 2008 through February 11, 2009, just use the code FLYMSY, and get 50% off your fare! From Los Angeles roundtrip INCLUDING fees and taxes, that works out to $216 per person!
Laissez les bons temps roulez!
