The tickets are nonrefundable and blackout dates do apply. The sale does not apply to travel on Labor Day weekend and Thanksgiving weekend. Additionally, the sale does not apply to Friday to Sunday travel on most routes, so this won’t work for an in-and-out weekend trip. If your schedule is flexible, though, using the site’s low-fare calendar can help you find the cheapest days to fly.
