It might have taken the FAA to convince Southwest to take its737 Max 8’s out of the air , but the airline company is making up for it( sort of) with a March promotion that permits you to alter your flight totally free, even if there’s a distinction in the price of the ticket.
Unlike many other airlines, Southwest never ever charges change fees. What’s different here is that you can alter a flight to one that’s more costly and still not pay a penny.
Initially found by Dan’s Deals, the systemwide policy change allows you to alter any flight that was reserved for travel in March to another one within14 days free of charge. Dan didn’t say why the deal exists, but our own Shep McAllister was provided the option when his737 Max 8 flight was cancelled, something consumer assistance informed him was due to problems with the Max 8
If your travel plans have altered, then that’s terrific news. As Dan mentions, it can also indicate good ideas when you reserve that ticket. He booked a$ 134flight and then seconds later altered the ticket to a$583 option.
He keeps in mind that as soon as he made that change he wasn’t able to cancel the ticket( Southwest permits free cancellations within24 hours of reservation) and rather had to contact us to get his cash back, so like probably every other time in your life you have actually ever purchased a plane ticket you’ll want to be prepared to commit to flying when you begin this procedure or be gotten ready for a tiny bit of a headache.
If you’re preparing a last-minute March journey or wish to extend one you have actually currently scheduled it’s a quite strong deal.
