Yes, that is a lot of blacked out dates, but just imagine the dates around the holidays as unavailable for this sale and you will be fine.
What is funny to me about this sale is that my home airport of Buffalo will often have deals at $39 from here to Baltimore with sales like this. However, this time it is at $69 with Buffalo to Chicago on sale at $39 this time and to Boston for just $49. While I like Baltimore for the proximity to DC, I like having Chicago cheap as well.
Then, if you head to the various hub airports (Baltimore, Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix, Houston, etc), you will find some city pairs at just $29 each way.
One tip – if you have a choice, choose the early flight as opposed to the late option. The reason is that the late flights can often run late due to delays from that flight making its way across the country, Southwest-style. The early flight should almost always leave on time.
