Here’s a capital idea: a $280 round-trip fare on Southwest from LAX to Washington Dulles that includes all taxes and fees.
It is subject to availability, and there is a 10-day advance-purchase requirement. There is no minimum stay.
The ticket is for travel Tuesdays and Wednesdays through May and from Aug. 28 to Oct. 30.
Info: Southwest, (800) 435-9792.
