No return of MCI-MSP...boo.

MSP in general has not returned to anywhere near what Southwest had before the pandemic.

this seems to be the new normal, probably better than giving us a date then changing it as said date approaches.

I see the seasonal nonstop to cancun Saturday only from cmh is now a one stop again. I figured this route may go year round as they kept it through late October which is cancun low season.

I will note it is the crawlers that WN has prevented not people manually checking fares to see if they drop

True, The post I was replying to referred to websites doing cost comparisons.

Is it just me or are a bunch of Christmas and Thanksgiving routes showing only full fare Anytime and BS fares? Literally these are the last seat day of fares I am seeing right now. I have never seen WN have fares this high for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

It is like this every year - trying to capture full fares to incite scarcity buying. Keep an eye on it, the Wanna Get Away buckets will appear.

Is there any time pre-COVID when Southwest had less than 4 months inventory on sale? On September 15th it'll be just over 100 days. Was hoping to book a group with Southwest for mid-January, but not waiting another 3 months in the hopes we get a better offer, so AA here we come...

My general rule is that there's no need to book earlier than 6-8 weeks in advance for routine travel. Pricing is best in that timeframe. By routine travel, I mean anything that's not especially high demand like Christmas, Florida in February-March, a random route on a Tuesday, etc.

I'm booking almost 20 people on the same itinerary to Cancun in January. I'd like to have that booked more than 6-8 weeks in advance
