Saturday Night Stay-Over

So many of you are frequent travelers, does anyone know the history in the airline industry’s “Saturday Night Stay-Over” rule, that gave you a better rate if you were willing to waste your weekend in a far-away place?

It’s fun when you’re young and single, but once you’ve gotten in the habit of sacrificing your weekends and then you find yourself a little older, a little married, or with a little family, it’s no fun anymore.

As for history, the Saturday Night Stay-Over is becoming just that. In fact, so many of the standard fee rules are being tossed to the breezes, it’s hard to know what strategies work best when trying to find cheap fares these days.

And when it comes to frequent travelers, Tom of course ranks way up there: try New Orleans, Kiev, Dhahran, York, and San Antonio in the next two weeks or so!
