Would someone please tell me what "one stop -- no plane change" means besides the obvious? How do you know where you are stopping and for how long? Must you remain on the plane or can you get out and stretch your legs. I just don't understand. Thanks for any help!!

I called SW before I booked with that exact question and I was told that as long as you book through the SW website or called SW you will not be charged. If you book the exact same flight using Air Tran you will be charged.

If you click on "one stop" it will tell you where you're changing.

It just means the obvious, the plane will stop somewhere and you'll just stay on the plane while others leave/arrive.

The alternative would stay one stop, change plane and tell you where you'll change planes.

We had a no plane change years ago on a different airline and I know we got off the plane and waited right there at the gate each time (it was actually 2 stops- no plane change). I remember getting on the 3rd time and the attendant being surprised that we were on all 3 legs of the flight.

So on SW do you always stay on the plane? Can you switch seats before the new people get on? We have a no plane change on SW this June.

I've done several no plane change flights with Southwest and never had to get off the plane. I'm not saying that no one does, but I've never had to.

They ask that everyone who is getting off do so. And then after they do a head count to ensure they have who they are supposed to have, you are allowed to move to new seats.

? About points refund

Hello, I booked flights for my husband, 2 kids and me with early boarding (when it cost $10 each way) with points from our SW credit card. I have checked a few times since to see if the points have decreased - and today they have. When I tried to change the flights online, the system wouldn't allow me to. Called customer service and was told the only way to get the points credited back to my account would be to cancel the current flights and rebook at the new points. Doing this, I would lose the $80 I paid for early bird boarding. The difference in points is 17240. I would then have to pay for early bird again - price is now $100 for 4 people. Do you think it's worth it to cancel and rebook to get the 17K points or will the $100 early boarding fee negate that? I hope this makes sense. Thanks so much!

Hmm, well I think 17000 points is worth more than $100 for sure, but it's weird that you can't change it. I changed my flights last month online and the points went right back in, and I didn't lose my EBCI. What are you clicking on and what is it telling you?

I started the process and of course didn't go all the way, but it looked like it would let me change a reservation. Was part of yours booked with Airtran instead of SW?

I booked the flight directly with SW. When I log in and try to change it online, I receive an error message that says it contains modifications that can't be changed online and I need to call customer service. Not sure why the customer service rep couldn't modify it, but said only way to get the lower points is to completely cancel and then rebook, but I would lose the early bird.

I would call back and speak to another SWA agent.
