Hi guys, is there a website where you can find cheap last minute flights where it suggests destinations to you? For example, if I want to go somewhere for labor day weekend by flight, but I don't have a specific location in mind. I would want it to be able to search multiple destinations and tell me which are the cheapest. I tried Southwest, but the flights are not as last minute as I need.

American Airlines used to have a deal on holiday weekends like Memorial Day or Labor Day, where you could fly Saturday and return Sunday (or same day) anywhere in the USA for like fifty bucks, they had all these planes scheduled to take off, and nobody wanted to go anywhere middle of a long weekend. Phone a travel agent with a real desk and ask if any airlines are still doing things like that. Or phone a few major airlines at their toll free number.

Once we were in Florida and were looking for one-way flights to Detroit, and it just happened to be Thursday before Labor Day, and we booked $50 RTs for Saturday afternoon on American, and just threw away the return coupon. If it's this weekend you're looking for, you could be in luck.

Southwest is doing that for Thanksgiving & Christmas, Fly on the actual hoilday get low rate.

I think other airlines do also by opening up seats in low fare classes. But, alot dont do anything, so if there flight the day before have issues that have the open seats to get the holiday traffic the next day.

Go to : http://www.skyscanner.com/

And for destination, type in 'Everywhere'. I don't think they have Southwest, but do have a nice selection of legacy carriers.
