How many times can you change a flight on SW Airlines?

I've changed mine twice already for lower fares and am wondering how long that can last. The CSR's I spoke with when I called to ask (two of them) said they thought it was 3-4 times, but weren't sure. Have any of you ever heard of a limit?

Thanks!

No change fee per se, but only until the flights become more expensive, then you have to pay the difference in airfare.

Thanks, Rastaguytoday - I'm hoping for one of their drop-dead sales SOON, but I consider myself lucky already.

If you are on Facebook, ask on the Southwest page. They are really good about replying with accurate info.

Thanks folks, I tried sending them an e-mail and had a completely off the wall answer so I decided to call and ended up still with nothing concrete. I guess I'll just keep making changes as they come up and hope for the best.

Im planning a trip to London in March and have considered buying tickets not but hoping they will go down - IF I buy my tickets now - I know SW does not fly to London but from someone else - would I be able to exchange for a cheaper ticket???

oh2doula - You would have to pay a change fee (usually about $250 on an international flight, but depends on airline).

Some fares cannot be rebooked, even with a fee. It depends on the fare code, if is it non-refundable, non-cancellable, you won't be able to change it.

If oh2doula is asking about a refund for a price drop, not a change, then it's possible on some airlines. Here's a chart about it, but not sure it's up to date. You would have to check the airline you are planning to book and book with the airline, not a reseller.
