I love airfare sales but I’m really not sure what Southwest Airlines is thinking promoting their ridiculously low $99 airfares to Hawaii the day after the Governor of the Aloha State said he hopes people won’t come to the islands right now since hospitals are nearing capacity. Here’s more about the Governor’s warnings and my 10 reasons to postpone your trip to Hawaii.
But, the good news is that Southwest’s fare sale is valid through December 15, 2021 so hopefully things will be better in a month or so.
If you’re interested, you need to book on Southwest.com by 8/26 11:59 p.m. Central Time. Points bookings do not include government fees from $5.60 per one-way flight.
Southwest is probably thinking that they are in business to make a profit, by providing a service that people choose to purchase. Unlike the governor of Hawaii that is killing the tourist industry and hoping us tax payers will continue to bail out his state.
