For those of you who fly SW and are familiar with their scheduling, you know that they were currently showing flights through Oct.30th.
I had called and asked a rep when they would open the next set of dates and she told me on or about June 10th. This was the schedule I was waiting for because we wanted to fly out on 10/30 and return on 11/5.
Yesterday I was just browsing and pricing the Oct 30th fares and their site showed dates through Nov 5th!
I called and a rep told me that they just opened through that date which they don't usually do-usually it's a much broader timespan.
SO glad I checked! I ended up booking our trip! Flying our on 10/30 and returning Nov5th-using free flight award for the return trip(the more expensive leg and you can use award on 2 one-ways). Their webfare for 10/30 was $139! I had a $36 credit,so
we are both going for a grand total of $263 out of pocket for air!
I then called my host-got the suite comped for 6 nights with food-just waiting on the rental car.
Feeling great! From having NO trips booked to TWO trips booked (going 6/6 also-also comped) in just over a week!
Hope the new dates for SW help!
