[QUOTE=jo-jo;1133392]I looked at southwest website and “booked” using air tran fllights and it does say…
[B] No Change Fees
(applicable fare difference applies)
(nontransferable - no name changes allowed)
So the use of funds is the same. The only change is when you check it, air tran gives you seats and you can only change once you get to the airport. So the no change fees/reusable funds policy makes me happy.

I’m ticked about the change on fees only for same name. >>>I<<< bought the tickets, and when I can’t use money that I paid with my credit card it rubs me the wrong way. (And it’s all the same last name too!)
Also, not happy about the number of direct flights that we used to have is now cut due to the merger with Airtran so more flights are being directed into Atlanta. My 2 hour flight has become a 4-5 hour flight for MOST of the choices.
I can fly my little old slow plane down in 5 hours! Crank in the extra time for security and the trip becomes 6-8 hours with a change. And with the increases in airfares, it’s gettting to be almost cheaper too.
