My brother who lives in Atlanta recently had a friend visit from Newark. That friend had paid $138 for his roundtrip ticket from Newark to Atlanta on Delta, which was a super Snooze-You-Lose airfare. Before that friend even left Newark, he decided to extend his stay by an extra two days. If he called the airline to make the change, he would have to pay a $200 change fee, plus an additional $145 because the ticket price had gone up, so at the end of the day, he would have to pay an additional $345 to change his ticket, when the original ticket was only $138. When you have a non-refundable ticket, you have to pay the change fee, plus the difference in fares to change a ticket.
United Airlines is bringing out the carry-on baggage police in full force and has begun cracking down hard. The airline requires that carry-ons be no larger than 9 x 14 x 22 inches, including handles and wheels. Make sure your bag is within this size limit or you could get sent back to the check-in counter to check your bag.

Spring Is A Great Time For Cruises

If you want an affordable vacation, a spring cruise could be just the ticket. It’s a great time to look for cruises that depart at the end of March through May because we are seeing some great prices.

Anytime you shop online, you could be earning frequent flyer miles by making a few extra clicks of the mouse. When you go online to shop, make sure you go to your airline’s frequent flyer shopping mall website, search for your desired retailer and click through to the retailer’s website from there. Whether you are shopping for clothes at Macy’s, or appliances at Lowe’s or Home Depot, it’s foolish not to go through these frequent flyer sites to earn bonus miles for things you would be buying anyway. 
This winter the airlines and their passengers have been beaten up by weather related cancellations and delays. Since the beginning of 2014, we’ve seen 75,000 flights cancelled, which means millions of air travelers had their flights cancelled, and that’s just for travel within the U.S. You can usually take the number of cancellations and multiply it by two or three to get the number of delays during the same time period, so it has been a hard start to the year for the air traveler and the airlines.
If you’d like to experience first class travel, we’ve got fares that put the front cabin within reach. We talked about first class sale fares a couple of months ago, and now it’s time to take another look at these deals. The travel dates on these fares have recently been extended to cover travel now all the way through July 26. We’ve been seeing first class fares from Dallas to the West Coast and New York City for $519-$559 roundtrip. In summer, you could be paying $350-$450 roundtrip on these same routes to travel in coach class, so for a little more money, you can get a whole lot of extras.
The big news for Dallas area travelers in recent weeks is that Southwest announced 15 new nonstop routes from Dallas Love Field beginning next fall. Flights to five new destinations will begin on October 13, when the Wright Amendment restrictions on nonstops out of Love Field end, and flights to 10 new cities will start in November. Southwest will begin offering nonstop flights to Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas and Orlando on October 13 and to Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York LaGuardia, Orange County, Phoenix, San Diego, Tampa and Washington Reagan National on November 2.

Some airlines and hotels are offering promotions this winter and spring that allow you to earn bonus miles, make the most of your miles and earn free nights. We’ve got the details below.

Spring break is a busy time of year for family travel and we see prices rise due to demand. We have some tips and tricks for you to help lower costs during this busy travel period.

If you have winter or spring travel plans, now is the time to look for deals. Last year Southwest launched a blowout sale in early February for spring travel and the airline may repeat it again. We have also been seeing some incredible fares to Denver and other U.S. cities.
