Concerning prices displayed at respective website (for instance, spirit), for seats scheduled four months from now, do these same seat quotes change day to day (or month to month for that matter), or do these quotes stay the same?
If the former is the case, typically how far out is the sweet spot for making the purchase, or does it become too much of a gamble?
I watch the prices frequently.. when I notice a price that seems responsible I will book it even if it means using flying one airline there and another back.
SWA does offer airline credits for price drops.. but you must use it in one yr.
They change all the time. I've seen several fluctuations over the course of one afternoon. Just choose a number that works for you and buy it as soon as it drops below. We typically fly Southwest and as Cathy said they credit you for price drops.
