As for restrictions, have you tried clicking on it?

Southwest has 3 fare catagories. The cheapest is available online only and marked as 'Web Only' This means nothing other than the fare is not available if you call Southwest airlines.

The 'Wanna Get Away' fare is the lowest available fare and available up to 2 weeks before a flight. These are the only fares marked as web only.

You can click one of the 3 fare types to see the restrictions for each fare.

Joe--I was really holding it together ( barely) until I got to your response!

Maureen--you are repeating the question asked by the OP ( original poster) rather than repeat the question go back and read the responses in # 1, 3 and 4. HInt: sometimes when it walks like a dog, barks like a dog and looks like a dog--It IS a dog!!!!
