Except WN, which is becoming a big player in DEN.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

WN doesn't charge a CHANGE FEE, but will collect any additional fare due on your ticket for the new flight.

I don't know F9's pricing structure, so this may not be applicable, anyway, but...

The article doesn't make it clear if F9 is will be charging it on all fares or just discount/restricted fares. Most legacies (AFAIK) don't charge change fees on unrestricted/full fare tickets (one of the reasons I buy them for business travel).

If F9 is charging the fee on -all- changes, that seems a little deperate

Ya kinda harsh going from free standby to having to pay the fare difference and a $150 change fee, but as we know F9 has a business to run and needs to generate as much cash as possible.

I do however wonder how this will play out in markets against United, which still offers free standby, or merely a $75 charge for confirming a seat

Just to clarify, same-day standby will have to pay the fare difference, but they will not have to pay the $150 change fee, if I'm interpreting the article correctly.

Quote:
Frontier Airlines on Friday said it will start charging travelers to switch flights on the day of their travel, and will charge $150 to make changes on days prior to the flight.

So Frontier's same-day standby policy is exactly the same as Southwest's. It's the $150 fee Frontier will now charge to change the date of your flight that will be different from Southwest's policy.
