Southwest Airline - went to buy tickets?

We are flying from LAX to SMF in April . We can get a flight for $100.00 . Should we wait and see if it drops?

I wouldn't. At most you'll probably save 10-20 bucks...IF you find a cheaper ticket. Buy now, don't sit on risk.

I wouldn't hurry to buy now. It will go down to $90 at least, looking at the Low Fare Calandar. That is a short inexpensive route.

Are you signed up for DING and emails from Southwest? They just had a 40% off email the other day. Did you get that? If not sign up now....

Do you fly Southwest often? If you do buy now and the fare drops you can rebook and get the credit for future use within one year. In which case, I'd buy now and get the credit (when the fare drops) for future use.

Well, even if you'd booked them the date you started this thread, if the price went down, you could have gotten a credit from Southwest for the difference.

Someone from Winnipeg may not have much use for a credit with Southwest.
