Southwest has a very minimal presence at IAD--only 7 flights a day. Presumably, they have determined they can make more money putting their focus on BWI, and to a lesser extent DCA.

southwest and involuntary denied boarding

It is interesting that in the wake of the United involuntary denied boarding debacle, SW has not announced any changes to its policy of seeking volunteers for overbooked flights. SW currently has...

Not an expansion

Kind of interesting how the media accepted the claim in the press release that this is an expansion at Love Field--when it is actually a very significant contraction. While there are more cities...

no PHX

Bummed to see no SFO-PHX. WN, AA, UAL have super high fares on the route. The several times a week frontier flight has brought some relief, but not much. Often pay more for SFO-PHX than SFO-east...

Which OAK hotel for early departure?

I will be taking a very early Southwest flight out of Oakland, and was thinking it would be easier to stay at a hotel near the airport. Are there any reasonable hotels near OAK that have a shuttle?

same day standby DCA to IAD

Was trying to do a same day stand by changing from a DCA to IAD flight--but was told there would be a $200 change fee. I had thought the DC airports were co-terminals. Is it an absolute rule that...

I find it kind of odd that the price is the same no matter how long the flight. Seems hardly worth $15 for DAL-HOU, but much worth it for LAX-BWI.

SFO-PHX discontinued?

Looks like SFO-PHX is also discontinued. At least seems to be no flights in May. Too bad. Put some pressure on SW and United fares.

Do file a complaint

I do think you have a very legitimate complaint, and would definitely file with the DOT. I have had the same experience. SW has rendered the legacy awards almost impossible to use with very little...

next round of station closings

It seems pretty clear that southwest is giving it a final try at some Airtran stations before deciding whether or not to close shop. Grand Rapids, Flint, Des Moines, Witchita, Akron/Canton are on...

making a payment

Does making a payment to a credit card keep the card open even if there has been no purchase? If so, one approach would be to make a $1.00 payment through your on-line banking.
