For some airline passengers, Black Friday has arrived a week early courtesy of Southwest Airlines. The airline could not contain itself, launching a one-day only Doorbuster Sale today. The dominant carrier at Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport is offering up to 40 percent off round-trip flights in the Wanna Get Away fare category when you use the promo code EARLYDEAL. The discount is good only for travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from Dec. 11 to Feb. 12. Still, there are bargains to be had if you can work around blackout dates that include the day after Christmas and Jan. 1. However, Christmas Day is not blacked out and is included in the sale.

First of all, Southwest Airlines needs to get with my schedule. I expect to see airfare sales on Tuesdays. When the airline launches them on Fridays, it gets me all frazzled. Routine, people. But the sale Southwest announced today is anything but routine. It features airfares for holiday travel - from Dec. 13 to Jan. 5. And while there are blackout dates, there are not nearly as many as you might expect for a peak travel period. Blackout dates are Dec. 23, Dec. 26, Dec. 30 and Jan. 2. See, that's not so bad. One-way fares from Baltimore range from $49 to Boston  to $199  for a trip to San Francisco.
