No ding yet?


#1

Is my ding a ling broken again? or is there really no ding released yet today?


#2

I have not gotten one today either!!! BUT check regular southwest because our flights would have been pretty cheap yesterday!!

I usually NEVER check after I get flights because I do not want to find a better deal:crying: AND yesterday I broke my own rule and checked and IF I would have waited we could’ve flown SW for $160 less so $32 less per person, $16 less per person each way!!! OK I know it is not that much but every penny counts!!! So I was a little sad:crying: But I love flying frontier so I guessssss that is the trade off!!!:glare:

So anyway try that!!!:happy:


#3

I have already checked the daily regular fare- they are down from a few weeks ago but they are also still quite high! $126 one way-


#4

I figured you probably already checked, sorry they are still so high-- Ours are at about $99-&109 each way!!! Keep watching!!!


#5

I have some $74 options but they are coming home at 7am and that means leaving the resort at 5am to get there on time- that would be too hard to do with the four kids- my other option is the $126


#6

I havent rec a ding yet today either… I have the same options… Im going to leave Philly at 9:05 get there around 12 ish for $74 and then I think Im going to book the $99 coming home but I need to leave the resort at 6 am ish… Its better than paying $128 for 2 hours later… I figure whats 2 hours…


#7

Im even tempted to get one room at the airport, fudge the amount staying in it and fly out early on Sat just to save the $$ but it would not save me much if I did that and still cause a lot of stress… Ed is pushing the no stress rule hardcore this trip!


#8

Isn’t that what going to Disney is all about? Leave the stress behind… come on Woohoo, you can do it… breathe in… breathe out… and repeat…:biggrin:


#9

sure- Ill be breathing in and out really fast into a paper bag if I pay $126 one way for all 6 of us! LOL Especially since I passed on tickets for $207 from Delta for what I thought would be a ding fare on SW!!!


#10

That’s the thing about ding’s. They are unpredictable and can be for really odd ball times… hold on… I’m sure something will come along.


#11

Oh… and $207 both ways from Delta is a steal. We live so close to the most expensive Delta Hub in the country. We have to drive to INDY, Columbus, or Louisville to fly SW in order to save money.


#12

Can I be dumb for a second and ask what a DING is?


#13

Ding is a program that SouthWest Airlines uses to alert their customers of a good airfare. You download it to your computer desktop and it literally “dings” when a Destination of your choice has a good deal.

Southwest Airlines - What is DING!® ?


#14

I love Southwest but our Vacation dates are still too far out to even try and see how much they would cost . . . alas we went through Continental. Can you say, OUCH!


#15

It was a steal but we wanted our tax return to be in the account before we bought it and it changed within two days by $90 dollars a ticket!:eek: Im so upset!


#16

Did you know, if it’s the same type of southwest ticket (wanna get away, ding) and the price goes down, you can go in and change your ticket and get a credit on your account. You have 1 year from the time of the original purchase of your ticket to use that credit, and it is transferrable - like a gift card. after I got my tickets last year our fares went down a total of $100 for the two of us, I gave my credit to my daughter and she used in January. her tickets went down the week after she got hers by $20, she re-did hers and gave my parents the $20. (only they gave her the $20 and I didn’t see anything!) :laugh:


#17

Actually no I didn’t know that but our original flight is booked thru Frontier not SW so no credit!!!:glare: But thanks for the info for future use!!

HEY WOOOOOHOOOOO did you check todays Ding? I got one right away this morning!!!


#18

nothing! iT was only for like two or three places and not for Orlando! I hate that!


#19

I got tired of waiting for a ding and just booked our flights when they were reasonable, not great but reasonable. I’m sure glad we did. We really needed to have specific flight times and I was really afraid they weren’t going to be available if I waited. When I just checked our departure AirTran flight is no longer available for booking and our SWA return flight has gone up to $165.00. We paid $99.


#20

I did the same thing for both of our summer trips. We paid about $109 each way but we have the flights we want and I’m not stressed about them selling out. We’re flying out on a Friday and back on a Sunday and a lot of the DINGs have been for weekday flights so I’m not holding out a lot of hope at this point.
