Yesterday I recieved an email from Delta that our itinerary for our September trip had been changed. They were changing our return flight from a non-stop flight getting in at 9:30 p.m. to a one stop flight getting in at 11:53 p.m.
Well, I called to see what could be done and they said that if I did not want to take this flight then I could take the other flight offered that day at 11:00 AM. Well, I was not happy at all, we specifically booked this flight so that we could leave Disney in the evening, allowing us another whole day in the parks, but to arrive home that late when three of us had to be at work the next moring would just be too much. They told me that since our itinerary was changed from a non-stop flight to a flight with a stop and a plane change, and because it was a time difference of more than 90 minutes I was elligable for a full refund. They said to shop around to see if there was another flight that was accomodating and call them back and they would refund the money in its entirety.
Well, Southwest just happened to be having an internet special of $59 each way. The times were perfect, so I booked. I saved over a $1000!!!
Delta has processed my refund and Southwest confirmed my reservations. Plus, I get one extra hour in the park!
I was so excited I just had to share. That is spending money in the pocket!!!
