I fly SW every chance I get. I think you got a great price on R/T tickets. I'm paying $109 one way from Baltimore to Orlando, so $90 one way is terrific.

SW does not have TV or movies.

It's totally true! If you book Southwest, keep checking periodically to see if the fare goes down. If it does, you can rebook (online or I imagine on the phone) your exact same flights at the lower rate, with the money you save remaining in your "Travel Fund" for use for additional Southwest travel within 12 months. (If you book at higher fare categories, this money may even be immediately refundable.) I don't believe it's an actual physical voucher. The money just remains in a virtual Travel Fund attached to your name--so with the caveat that you can't pool those monies. If two people are traveling together on the same reservation, they each have an individual Travel Fund (i.e. the person who made the reservation can't use all the monies just for themselves later.)

I rebooked our Memorial Day Weekend WDW trip last week for the same dates/flights when I saw that the fare suddenly dropped, and we saved $81 a ticket! (Which we'll use for our next WDW or DLR Disney trip on Southwest.)

We rebooked our Manchester, NH to Orlando direct flight and got direct credit card refund - with the "wanna get away" or "online only" fares.

Does Southwest have free check in luggage? On board snacks? TVs in the seats? What is their cancellation policy like? Can I re-schedule if I need to without penalty?

Anything else I should know about Southwest (in your experience) before I book?

Thank you so much!!

FYI, all of your questions can be answered if you take a look at the websites for JetBlue and Southwest.

Also, direct and non-stop flights are two different things; direct flight do have stops. I'm not sure which one you meant in your question.
