Call it a magical mystery tour on a cut-rate budget.
Northwest Airlines is offering approximately 300 round-trip tickets for one-day visits from Indianapolis to any of 15 cities for only $59 each or $99 per couple this week. That's the cut rate.The mystery is: Travelers won't learn which cities they will visit until they arrive at Indianapolis International Airport on Saturday morning.
"I think, hopefully, it will tweak the adventuresome spirit in many of us," said Northwest spokesman Jim Faulkner.
The tickets were to be sold on a first-come basis beginning Wednesday.
Northwest isn't revealing all 15 destinations, but New Orleans, Min-neapolis and Philadelphia are among them.
The airline is using the trips to advertise its nonstop service from Indianapolis. It will conduct mystery tours from other cities if this one is a success.
The airline often offers special one-day Saturday trips to such places as the Mall of America in Minneapolis.
