Ticket prices are expected to be competitive because the number of people travel this winter is predicted to be down. Southwest Airlines just launched new discounts for travel any day except Fridays and Sundays from October 13th through February 11th.

Industry experts expect other carriers to match Southwest's offer.

Overall, fall and winter fares are down as much as 16 percent this year compared with last year.
