Nice deal! Here's some info on the taxes:

Fares do not include federal excise tax of $3.70 per takeoff and landing, airport-assessed passenger facility charges (PFC) of up to $9, and government-imposed September 11th Security Fee of up to $5 one-way.

with the $39 flight the total airfare comes to $72.56 round trip but the taxes add up to another $48.24 so it totals about $120

@caniac45, @oo7slice: Thanks for the added info! That's still a great deal for a round trip flight (if possible)

I went through the steps to do a round-trip flight and it came to 99 dollars and change. It was from LAX to Sacramento, traveling on consecutive thursdays, so it might be more expensive going a longer distance, but that's the price the site gave me.

@dupes: Did you use the links at the bottom? Also, you have to travel from March 15 to May 25, 2010. And certain times are higher priced as well.

I live outside of Denver. The only place to visit with this fair that seemed remotly interesting was Lubbock, Texas.

That's right, Lubbock, Texas was for once the most exciting place.

THANKS! I was planning on driving from the SF area down to Disneyland during spring break, but this made it about $100/person to fly down and save myself kids in a car for 8 hours there and 8 hours back.... YAY!

now you get to spend 12 hours in the airports...

From $39 means not every destination and not every flight. Plus that's the base fare, not what it will really cost.

Just booked NYC to RDU ... $39 fare + segment fee + passenger facility fee + security fee = $60.40 per person.

Fares from RDU to NYC when we needed to travel totaled $120 (fare + taxes and fees) per person on Southwest, but we could fly Delta for total fare of $69 per person.

So all in all ... it's a still a good deal if you can get it, but (as always) it pays to look around for the best deal.

Just booked 4 of us from Reno to Orange County on $39 fares....I have never seen it this low to So Cal from here.

FAIL!!! Suck you in with $39 advertisements and end up paying $120 RT? I'm from Dallas so it's even worse because of the lame-brained half-witted Write Amendment. If I wanted to fly to NYC, DEN, SFO, SJC, ANYWHERE outside the bordering states, I'd pay $240.

$240 = FAIL

@yeller: Well... It does say ONE WAY. Also, look at my options from Providence, Pittsburgh, Philladelphia, or Baltimore. It's still a good value IF you want/need to fly to the places near you. I suppose I should have put Southwest's title "Travel Near with your dear for $39." The key there is Near, I don't think there is any deception there.

Remember, bags fly free on Southwest! Also unlimited free snacks and drinks on board. I've been flying Southwest for a number of years now and consistently find their staff to be extremely friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help.

These deals are never any good for people living in Orlando. The only places I could go are:
- Ft Lauderdale (the 3hr drive would be faster)
- Birmingham, AL (no thanks)

THANKS !
Just bought a ticket for my eldest sister to come visit me, whom I have only seen twice in the last 10 or so years, and during less than enjoyable circumstances.

Ticket cost was less than the fuel to make the ~22+ hr. drive, and I got her a non-stop flight that will only take 2-1/2 hours vs. a ~22 hr road trip :)

Just a heads up:
