I'm looking at a trip for the birth of a grandchild! As that is an event which is prone to be sooner/later than expected, I am wondering about how to best buy tickets. Southwest Airlines has good schedules and prices for my area but I'm unable to find info on charges for sudden, last minute schedule changes. Their site lists a number to call but I have tried and given up on several days. Do they ever answer????
Can anybody advise what "fare difference may apply " means? Does it mean only the difference if I choose a higher priced mid day flight over a red-eye price, or does it mean the upcharge for a last minute booking?
The difference is a matter of fly for $450-500 or drive if it is going to be $1200 or up!!
I would love to ask Southwest and gets the direct answer but that doesn't work so I'm here to ask you good folks. Thanks.
