Air-fare sales seem to be like department-store sales – they happen every week and the sale prices don’t look much different, week to week.

However, Tom Parsons of BestFares.com says we should pay attention to the Dallas/Fort Worth fare sale that American Airlines launched this week – through Thursday – for travel between April 10 and May 23.

“This caught me off guard,” said Parsons.

You’ll notice the travel dates begin two days after Easter and end five days before Memorial Day. But what the heck, Parsons said.

“April is a good time for travel,” particularly for people without kids in school, he said. He called the prices “some of the best deals American has given us in the last six months or so.”

For example, he cites Detroit. The sale price is $156 lower than the fares after the sale ends. New York is $185 lower. Washington, D.C., is $118 lower, and Philadelphia is $116 cheaper.
