Is it me? Southwest Airlines is more expensive than other Airlines now. Dallas Hub.

Southwest is expensive if you don’t plan ahead, but if you book a couple months in advance it can be super cheap. The best value is for their frequent fliers, their point system is ridiculously rewarding. When we traveled I easily earned enough points for a one way every week, plus the companion pass my SO and I could fly anywhere domestically whenever we felt like it.

I’ve found if you book far enough in advanced they have good rates but as you get closer they’re the same or higher than legacy. I really don’t view them as a low cost any more, that’s spirit and frontier now

Spirit and Frontier aren’t that cheap after you add fees for bags and picking your seat.

Not that cheap but they’re good for point redemptions (chase transfers, etc)

Yeah I’m with pwc 1, needed 2 round trip flights that cost ~$550 (44,000 chase points) that I got via chase 1:1 transfer to southwest points for like 12k

It depends on timing and also where you are going.

There should be a tax rebate for TAX payers. Our Pan and Adhaar is already linked so whenever we purchase anything we should get it without any extra tax. It should apply on everything including flight, railway, bus, cab, food items, groceries, clothes etc. We middle class working professionals are most extracted even before we get our salaries our tax is deducted. We pay taxes honestly and we deserve tax concessions.

General question: is there any certain “rule of thumb” post that you sell to take profiles? I’ve seen some experts (“”) say to always collect at 20% and others say until you see a reason to sell. Asking as rearranged last week and luckily got into the airlines before they exploded and now I’m sitting about 50% up on delta. And after selling Zoom way to early (used to buy my delta), I’m not sure whether to take the cash or let it ride more. This fast a rally makes me think it will plummet soon
