The sale is not valid around the Labor Day holiday weekend on Sept. 1, Sept. 2, or Sept. 5, and most continental U.S. travel is not valid on Fridays or Sundays. Travel to several destinations, including Miami, Orlando, and Las Vegas is only available on Sundays through Wednesdays. Similarly, travel from the continental U.S. to Hawaii is valid on Sundays to Wednesdays, while travel from Hawaii to the continental U.S. is valid on Tuesdays to Fridays.

Travelers who book the sale can choose Southwest's Wanna Get Away fare or the company's newest Wanna Get Away Plus fare, which allows travelers to take advantage of same-day changes and standby flights as well as transfer eligible unused flight credits to someone for future use.

Southwest is currently in the process of upgrading its planes by installing personal chargers, larger overhead bins, and upgrading its onboard Wi-Fi, all of which it is rolling out over the coming months.
