Yeah, things are dropping like crazy. Our March 28 (SJC-SAN_ flght was just cancelled. We weren't planning to go, but I wanted to wait for them to cancel so we could get a refund rather than more Travel Funds. Turns out we've changed it enough times that we're only getting $28.99 each back in cash

Cheers.

Ugh I should have done this ... waited to see if they canceled rather than canceling myself for our early May flight.

Luckily my travel funds will be extended through June 30, 2021 without having to pay that $100 per person fee like I had previously mentioned. I made the cutoff for the current extension by only 2 days.

Realistically many will be able to use these credits if they fly WN much at all.

We don't fly them much and, in general, when we do we have to pay cash as, between us, we have credit cards that will rebate $700 in WN tickets. And that's hard for us to spend on WN.

Cheers.

I rebooked 3 trips and got some points back but not all that many. The return from Orlando in June actually went up. Largest drop was to Dallas. Chicago virtually the same and mixed results for Orlando. Just got a new promotion in the email today touting $39 fares....sure...never for us.

I booked our September flights - or most of them - the first day they were released. The one flight I dragged me feet on because I couldn't remember my BFF's middle initial (I guessed on the return flight - so at some point I'll have to call to change it - I got her BD right) and now that flight is $40 higher. At least the kids all have their flights - it's just me and BFF that might have to pay a higher price or fly a different flight.
