A question about Southwest Airlines Fares

Jump to last reply

I've only flown on Southwest once before, and thought it was a pretty good experience.

I need to book flights for DH and me to go to KY for a wedding - we'll be flying back home on Labor Day. Southwest seems to have a pretty good schedule, they don't charge to check a bag, and they have good fares - or, at least they did. I found the flights that seemed best last night, but didn't book them them because I had to check on something. Tonight I went to book the flights, and the lowest fare for the return flight had gone up by $40 (web price only, it says) per person. Do the fares change back and forth a lot depending on the day, or is it only likely to get higher if I wait? I want to get the flights booked, and I don't want to risk having the fares increase (or the flights I want sold out), but I'll be unhappy if I buy them at this higher price, and then they go back down in the next couple of days. I'd appreciate some guidance fro those that have experience flying Southwest.
