So, silly question with reading here that some folks have to change flights.  My schedule showed a MAX on the way home, but now today, it doesn't.  So I didn't have to change anything it seems.

I guess I don't know how you see the plane or know you need to change your flight.  DO they notify you?  They are still selling tickets for my flight so I assume I am good?

Okay found out all my flights are on a 737, however, all the flights from Denver including those with stops are on 737.  I can't imagine they just aren't going to San Diego so I wonder if they are canceling those or some of those flights will change planes.

The reservation details shows the scheduled aircraft.  Mine had MAX a couple days ago, no longer now.

I have 2 big trips (4 flights) booked on Southwest this summer (neither of which are SDCC). Both of them got emails yesterday saying that the flights had been changed. 2 of them were small differences (5 and 10 minute changes in departure times), one was just a change in flight number, but one was a massive change. Instead of a one stop (no plane change) flight leaving at 4:50 pm, we were now on a two-stop (no plane change) flight that took an extra 3 hours of travel time and left at 10:05 am. This threw off our entire travel itinerary. My husband and I decided to split, so we wanted to each move to different flights. I called up Southwest last night and the rep was able to switch everything for me, no charge, on the phone, even though I had booked it all online and had a companion ticket on my flight. My husband's flight was actually $15 cheaper than what we paid when we booked it, so they refunded the difference to our credit card (rather than making it a Southwest credit).

I was very  happy with the customer service on this. If anyone has even the slightest change in their flights, I highly recommend calling Southwest and getting what you want. Just search up your desired flights online first and then let them know.

Southwest is the best! I too have been able to get them to refund me the difference for a flight change and it was a really easy and pleasant experience!

I had my SDCC flights changed already, just by an hour or so which isn't a big deal. My email did say if it was an issue to give them a call and I could switch/make changes with no issues.

Still waiting for to book my return flight. Ideally i know this is the time to book it, yet I don't want to get stuck with another travel voucher credit if I'm not going to be traveling within the next year :(

If you booked early....I would check if prices dropped.  Mine had. Got a refund of the difference in points with a quick call.

The good news is they have started human testing on a vaccine.

You can take the $17 now and get even more later if it drops again. Take it before it’s gone!

If people want to buy a cheap call option on the viability of future travel, roundtrip flights between LA and Miami are now about $40-$50.  Most of that price is taxes.  The airlines are giving away seats in the hopes of staying functional.
