    Morons – everything is sold out — probably before they even announced it. Don’t you think that every employee that was aware of this date grabbed up confirmed seats for either themselves or their friends and relatives. This is why I hate Southwest – no thanks you have only $638 fare available. Ridiculous as usual.

      They were available after we sent the newsletter. I took screenshots. Cheap fares like these go like wildfire
