Southwest "no-change-fee" - really?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a road trip through the gulf coast, Georgia, and on up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Washington DC in mid September. Planning to fly into New Orleans at the beginning of the trip and fly home from DC (we live in California).

So far I have booked our flight home from DC on Oct. 6. Non refundable fare on Delta.

I am hesitant to book the September flight to New Orleans, as we are considering that it is hurricane season along our planned route, and would be inclined to switch the trip up to begin in Boston and head down to DC if the weather looks bad.

Here's my question - there are some great fares on Southwest right now. If I were to go ahead and book a one-way from SFO - MSY, and then decide a week or so before the flight date to change to somewhere in the northeast, does southwest credit the earlier fare and then just charge the difference - no expensive change fees?
