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.

And you’ll probably have the entire plane to yourself, too...

What's the point of going to another city where everything is closed. 

I just want them to update my travel funds to have the new expiration date!

Flight costs are getting so low in some places.  It is VERY hard to resist these prices!  ::)

Prices for San Diego plummeted today. But looks like it’s only for new bookings. I can’t get a credit if I try to change my flights.

I just got credit for Southwest. Only $5, but still. Though at this rate,  I may not be able to use any of my flight credits from Southwest this year. But at least I've been able to recycle the credits as necessary...so if nothing happens I'm only out two max, rather than for all 4-5 events I was going to had I booked separately.

I have tickets for may to San Jose, before all this happened, my friend and I had plans to go up to visit friends for memorial day. Needless to say, when prices tanked, I got credits on the flights for the new prices.

We're not expecting to use them now obviously, but hopefully it's sdcc is canceled things have calmed down enough to travel and we can use it then. No idea though   :-\

I officially have $758 in travel funds from canceled due to 4 trips being canceled, none of my travel funds have moved to the new expiration date so I suspect I will have to call them.  They did say gove them time though so I can wait a week or two more.

I also just rebooked my flight to SD for $70 less. 

So at least when we can travel I will have the airfare covered!

Also if it won't let you change your flight to the cheaper rate, cancel the flight then rebook using those travel funds.

Just got off of chat with Southwest. My flights went down significantly and was given a credit of about $200 for future travel split between me and my daughter.  ;D

With the CCI cancellation announcement I wonder how flights will be handled for a date so far out.  I booked mine on points, but I don't want to lose them.  I would think SW would be accommodating...

I had one way booked with points, another with money. The points were refunded as points, the other was refunded as a travel credit.

Cancelled mine and the travel credit expires December 10, 2020 as of right now (We booked them that date 2019).  My Wondercon flight credit also expires in December.  I thought I read that they were extending the expiration dates, but my Wondercon one has been sitting with the same expiration for months so not sure whats going on.
