Not a fan. Had a great trip planned and my weekday evening MSP-MCI departure got eliminated in favor of a 6:40 am departure time. At least in the case of the 4th of July, I can change to the Sunday for free.

You should be able to change the rescheduled flight for free also. You might have to call in to do it tho. Anytime they change your scheduled flight, they allow you to change to another flight that might better suit your needs.

There is a message in the APP that I can change my flight for July but nothing has changed on my reservation that I can see. My departure and arrival times are all the same. ???

Something changed. Flight #, time on one end or other or maybe equipment.

Nothing needs to change. I have one reservation/flight that was cancelled and I was protected on another flight (that's the message that woke me up this morning telling me this is LIVE again) and another 3 that are just changeable because they are in the window of dates (no message sent) posted a couple of replies back for the summer season. Currently booking all my summer travel !!!

This is all over slickdeals and blogs now unfortunately, the cat's out of the bag. Southwest seems to have caught on and raised their minimum prices during this free change window so there aren't any amazing deals anymore (at least on the routes I'm looking at) but still savings to be had.

Correct, "at least on the routes I'm (you) looking at", as I have been able to save thousands again on my summer travel, specially becaus I require Sunday night returns to one of the most expesive airports in the nation, "SNA", and have tons of competing prices at "LAX" that make WN drop fares yes or yes with the co-terminal change option.

I think it is equipment related. The flight numbers and times did not change. Looks like both flights are now 737-700. The outbound used to be a Max8.

Yeah like I said in the original post, "but still savings to be had."

I'm just saying in the past Southwest kept prices the same during the free change windows. This time, there is an immediate increase in the minimum price starting July 7th. WN knows that people are abusing this and increased the minimum price during the free change window so they don't take as much of a loss.
