    Default Southwest Airlines--Price Matching

    Does anyone know if Southwest Airlines does price matching? I want to fly on them but found a Delta flight that is cheaper...I am wondering if they will match or beat the price if I call? Anyone have experience with this?

    How much does Delta charge for baggage? Southwest doesn't charge for baggage so add up your baggage costs with Delta and see which is cheaper. I have never tried to price match.

    No, they won't. Have you factored in bag fees? SW doesn't charge bag fees, so even if their price is somewhat higher, they may end up being the cheaper option. SW also has no change fees.

    Thanks for the info. Currently the SW ticket price is $129 and the Delta ticket price is $90(I only need a one way ticket.) The bag fees at Delta $23-25 so actually the Delta flight would still be cheaper.
    Maybe SW will have another sale soon...I should have bought the tickets a few weeks ago!

    If the Delta flight is cheaper, then why not just book that?
