    Just rebooked my April trip. Booked on points went from 24k to 16k saving me almost enough for a cheap one way. Email went out this morning.

    Heads up!

    I re-booked my daughter and her boyfriends inbound flights and saved about 2800 points from PIT. My husband's flight was booked earlier so it was still cheaper. He has the companion pass for 2016 so I am free.

    or at least cheap! LOL

    Yea, that companion pass is great. Have two trips and my wife flies for $5.60 on each flight (TSA fee).

    Finally a fare drop for Milwaukee!!!

    Was able to exchange my Chicago-Midway tickets for a round trip from Milwaukee. The MDW round trip was $186 and the MKE round trip is $251, but that also saves a Chicago drive (and more expensive parking). I made those changes to mine and my wife's tickets so fast that my fingers blistered.

    Thank you Bayou Bengal!

    I jumped on this; the change in fare on the exact same flights saved us $119.98 on our upcoming March trip to Vegas!
    A win! Plus credit towards our next trip.

    When are you going that you are getting $251 from MKE? I always seem to pick the wrong times to go. I'm paying $384 in June and it hasn't budged since I booked last month.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have a couple flights scheduled to different cities and will be saving money because of this. Good karma to YOU!

    My fares have been going crazy today on SWA. Checked this morning when I first saw the thread and no changes to fares. Checked late this morning and they had gone up 50 bucks. Just checked again before heading out of work and now its dropped to 25 below what it initially started at. I've never really seen it do this before.

    Holy smokes! I owe you now for sure. Just booked for April RT from ATL. Saved about $50 from the rates a few days ago. Cheapest rate I've ever had.
