How Far Out Can I Book On WN?

Tue Feb 06, 2007 2:38 pm

Hi,

Trying to make some summer vacation travel plans here, but WN's website will not let me book anything beyond May 11.

What gives? I couldv'e sworn I've booked them even farther in advance...

If the May 10th fares are any indication, a 1-stop transcon is looking *VERY* affordable for this summer  cool

I think this popped up earlier today, but check out Southwest's blog for more info: http://www.blogsouthwest.com/2007/01...e-reservations-further-in-advance/

Essentially, wait until Thursday of this week and you should be able to book then.

Because my wife despises last minute travel arrangements...that and her aunt and uncle we're staying with on the East Coast would like to know when to expect us so they can take the right days off from work  Wink

Why limit yourself to WN? If you need to buy now, take another airline.

Well, I'm not really limiting myself, but I'm not going to pay a $200 premium for flying one of the legacies...if the cost differential is more like $50, then I could see taking a legacy carrier. I think I can hold out until Thursday as ScottB suggested  Wink
