How do I change the departure city for the return leg of a flight?

I'm flying into Oakland but want to fly back from Sacramento. I paid for a return flight from Chicago Midway to Oakland and back. But the change reservations system on the website won't let me change Oakland to Sacramento for the return flight.

You apparently have to contact the airline to do that.

 

That is one reason I never book RT tickets. Two one ways cost the same as a RT on Southwest and give me a lot more flexibility..

 

Anyway, to answer your question, click on "contact us" below, and pick a non phone option. The phones have been a mess due to all the cancellations an delays.

 

You could also try the cell app "chat" option

You can cancel just your return flight and use that travel fund to book the one way flight from Sacramento. This will probably be easier than calling right now.
