Southwest has round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) to New Orleans (MSY) for $122, NONSTOP. $61 each-way. Flights March to May. A good amount of Saturday departures. Origin/Destination reversible.
Note: Frontier has slightly cheaper flights with inferior, fee encumbered fares that charge a $60 to $76 dollar fee for to bring a bag. Frontier also has an inferior schedule with only two nonstop flights per week on Thursdays and Sundays. You’ll want to avoid Frontier unless you plan on packing extremely lightly and have rock-solid travel plans already. We don’t consider the Frontier fares to be worthwhile unless they go on sale for less than $55.
Note: Southwest doesn’t charge bag fees, change fees, or cancellation fees. If you’ve already purchased a Southwest ticket, and the fare drops, you can call them to have the difference refunded to you in the form of a travel voucher.
Note: You can save an additional $150 if you purchase your Flight+Hotel together as a package on Southwest Vacations and use the TRAVEL19 coupon-code. Before you commit, always compare the prices of the individual Flights and Hotel with other hotel booking sites like Tripadvisor or HotelsCombined.

I was able to pull this fare up on Southwest. 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.
