Flying Southwest in December? Check your prices!

Many fares have gone down. I book with points, so I was credited almost 5,000 for my December flights!

mine actually went down last week

but, because the time of my outbound flight changed, I can no longer make changes myself but must call. The agent was so sweet! Only the inbound flight went down but she gave me the lower price for both legs, saving me 892 points!!

My November and December flights are way up from when I booked them, even with the fall sale going on. But still worth checking!

I don't fly often enough to know fares, but I booked Southwest on Monday for the four of us for $824 Dallas to Orlando, wondering if this will go down or not

Oh dear. Maybe I should have asked, " Flying Southwest from PHL to MCO in December?" I see flights as low as $109 for there. $88 at BWI!

No change for our Dec. 22nd flight out of Seattle. We booked in June and it has been much higher ever since.

Mine are up out of PVD too. Booked my return flight in July & now I'm really regretting not booking the flight there. The $198 one way flight I thought was too high is now starting to look like it was a bargain.

Same here. I even thought about flying out of Chicago, but not brave enough to chance the weather..
