NYC-Chicago or vice versa $131 tax included

Every now and again an airline will have an unannounced sale for reasons only known to them, but usually in response to a comptetitor lowering prices. Right now, ATA is offering NYC-Chicago Midway for $98 r/t ($103 on Travelocity including their fee) and American and Northwest are offering NYC-O'Hare (LGA-ORD) for $112.50. With taxes it comes to $131.40. Occasionally AA will have a weekend special for $139 not including taxes, but this allowed advance planning and leaving any date. The dates on AA are wide open and go through next October, so I picked a late April weekend next year to visit Chicago for the first time. Act fast, these sales often only last a day or so. When they pop up, grab them.

One way to find these sales is at Travelocity Dream Maps. You can customize the URL as follows: http://dps1.travelocity.com/dreamMap.ctl?dep_arp_name=NYC&maxFare=150 - change the NYC to your desired airport code and the 150 to the desired fare cost.

And Dad, if you're reading, not to worry. I picked the dates (out late Friday back early Monday) so I don't miss any work!
