The sale fares must be booked by the end of the day Thursday but are good for travel from Nov. 30 through Dec. 14 and from Jan. 4 through Feb. 15.

The sale fares are available on all days of the week except Sundays. The number of seats sold at the sale fares are limited, though there appeared to be broad availability for the discounted prices.
