Major carriers launched fresh short-term airfare sales this week, dropping prices to new low rates for 2012. Fares to popular destinations like Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans are currently discounted. These advertised sale fares, along with a slew of unadvertised specials, make today one of the best days to book so far this year.
