Fare cap


Aug 19, 2002
With Southwest''s announcement of a new $299 each way cap on last-minute fares, they announced this was a cut from $399 before. Can anyone tell me how long the $399 cap had been in place? Way back in 1995, a last minute fare LAX-DTW was quoted to me at $970 roundtrip ($172 over that cap) - so I took TWA instead then ($700 roundtrip).
On a side note, will DTW ever get more service? Its difficult to get anywhere on WN from here without long layovers, and travel to the east coast still generally means heading west to Chicago or St. Louis.
