American Airlines has round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) to Chicago (ORD) for $97, NONSTOP. Flights August to December. Departures mostly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Origin/Destination reversible.

Note: Spirit may be offering fares for a bit cheaper, but you’ll want to avoid those since their pricing does not include a carry-on bag and has inferior flight dates. Spirit fares aren’t really worth it unless you can avoid the +$60 in baggage fees, which means they would have to be priced at about $37 round-trip to be comparable to the American fare.

Note: Carry-on bag is allowed for free, but seat selection has a fee. You can avoid paying seat fees by not selecting a seat and being randomly assigned your seat at the gate.

I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline. Screenshot taken when this post was initially created. See timestamps at the top of this post.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
