Southwest does not overbook as part of the selling process (Effective May 8, 2017). While we no longer "overbook" flights, there will be operational instances where we will be over available seating capacity resulting in an oversale. Operational instances that may create an oversale include weight restrictions and aircraft type changes.
Requesting a Refund - Unused, fully refundable tickets, that do not carry restrictions, may be applied toward future travel or refunded within one year from the date of issue.
No Show Policy: If you are not planning to travel on any portion of this itinerary, please cancel your reservation at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled departure of your flight. Customers who fail to cancel reservations for a Wanna Get Away fare segment at least ten (10) minutes prior to travel and who do not board the flight will be considered a no show, and all remaining unused Wanna Get Away funds will be forfeited. All remaining unused Business Select and Anytime will be converted to reusable travel funds for the originally ticketed Passenger only. If you no show your reward travel reservation, the points will be redeposited to the purchaser’s Rapid Rewards account. Any taxes and fees associated with your reward travel reservation will be held for future use in the form of reusable travel funds under the name of the traveler(s).
Government-Imposed September 11th Security Fee - Effective for travel purchased on or after October 1, 2003, the Government will impose a September 11th Security Fee on all tickets including Rapid Rewards Awards and Companion Pass travel redeemed on or after that date.
Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) - Fee imposed by an airport on enplaning passengers when departing from or connecting at any of the airports in the list you will see by clicking here. That airport's PFC will apply in addition to the fare.
We hope your thirst was quenched on your recent flight with us. Cheers, friend!
