"You only turn 40 once," Southwest Airlines says on its online sale page. Really? I feel as though Southwest has been ballyhooing birthday promotions forever -- not that I'm complaining. The airline Tuesday launched an autumn airfare sale with one-way fares of $40, $80 and $120 depending on how far you fly. But think fast because the offer is good only until Thursday. And be patient -- Southwest's website may be slow to upload. The deal: The Celebrating 40 Years With $40 Fares One-Way sale works this way: $40 for short flights (up to 450 miles)

Who said airfare deals would peter out in 2011? I suppose they still might, but here's one I like from JetBlue that features good fares for spring from Long Beach. One-way fares start at $39 to Sacramento, San Francisco and Oakland, and $49 to Seattle -- but you must book by Tuesday night. The deal: The So-Much-to-Love Sale also features one-way fares of $65 to Salt Lake City, $69 to Portland and $84 to Austin, Texas. One-way coast-to-coast hauls to New York City and Boston are set at $129 from Long Beach or Los Angeles International Airport.

Winter airfare sales are such a distraction at this time of year. Aren't we all supposed to be holiday shopping? Nevermind. Check out what could be good savings on fares for winter or spring break. Would you believe $19 to Las Vegas? JetBlue Airways: Las Vegas is the sweet spot for this airfare sale. The airline's website said Tuesday that JetBlue will fly five flights daily between Long Beach and Las Vegas and, for a limited time, will charge just $19 plus tax each way. Last week, no-frills newcomer Allegiant Air promoted a $40.68 round-trip fare on the same route to celebrate its new service, which starts Dec. 15. It will be interesting to see how this Vegas airfare war plays out – hopefully with more low fares for fliers.
