  1. I tried to find it on the aa.com site. I see on the lowest fare but there aren’t actually any flights that i can see there

  2. @Michael – easier to go through Google Flights. I went to AA.com and plugged in May 14-15 for round trip LAX-CLT and the flights returned on aa.com did not show the same low fare flights. I manually plugged in flights by time and got the $214 fare on aa.com.

    Google Flights will find the low fare flights and take you directly to aa.com site for booking.

  3. Thanks to the North Carolina’s anti LGBT leanings, I’m not going to visit, use the airport, or have anything to do with the state. Let them reap what they sow.

  4. Pack a protest sign to wave around for 45 minutes in Charlotte Airport during the layover. And don’t spend any money there.

    Seriously, I see your point. I did not think of that issue when I saw the low fare.

  5. Southwest has a few great (like < $50) fares to and from DAL today for travel some April and May dates. They don't show up if you ask fro travel from coast to coast, so ask for a flight to DAL and a second flight from DAL to your destination. You can do it on one record if you like by requesting an open jaw trip and meeting the minimum connecting time. I booked OAK to DAL to FLL for $89 all-in.
