Southwest Booking Schedule Extended

Southwest just extended their schedule and you can book flights up to March 7, 2014.

You Can Book Southwest Flights Through March 7, 2014

There is no penalty to cancel a Southwest flight paid with points (the points go back to your account when you cancel), so it doesn’t hurt to book your summer travel before you firm up your plans.  You can cancel and rebook your ticket without a fee if the number of points required for the award drops or if your plans change.

If you cancel a paid flight on Southwest, the ticketed passenger gets a credit for the entire ticket amount (no change fees on Southwest!) valid for up to 1 year after the booking was made.

If you have a Southwest Companion Pass, your companion will fly free with you, on BOTH paid flights and/or flights booked with points.  You can book a seat for yourself, and add your companion later, if you don’t currently have a Companion Pass.

Read this post for all you need to know about the Southwest Companion Pass.

If you’re running low on Southwest points, you can instantly transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest Airlines on a 1:1 ratio.

All 4 versions of the Southwest credit card are currently offering a 50,000 point sign-up bonus.  50,000 Southwest points are worth ~$850 in travel on Southwest, and the sign-up bonus does currently count towards the Southwest Companion pass.

Bottom Line

Southwest’s schedule is open through March 7, 2014.

It doesn’t hurt to book your Spring 2014 travel now, even if you’re not 100% sure of your plans.  Since Southwest does not charge change fees, there is no penalty for cancelling the flights and re-booking.

  1. Thanks for the update D, SWA’s schedule is not updated far enough for my spring break plans. Come on SWA, update the schedule with a few more weeks. Looks like you are planning on visiting San Diego next March? Should be nice weather.

  2. Any updates on SWA flying to Hawaii?

  3. Can I successfully apply for the Chase Southwest Plus card if I already have the Chase Southwest Premier version of the card?

    Thanks

  4. @Marc Yes you can. In fact I got the Plus card in the mail today. I got the personal Premier version first, no problem. I then tried the business route and got denied a couple of times. So then I tried the personal Plus and after some questioning about why I wanted that one after I just got the Premier less than a month ago I finally got it. At least for me they didn’t want to give me more credit so I told them to move some credit around I had with Chase. The minimum for Premier was $5,000 and the minimum for the Plus was $2,000. Hope this helps.
