Re: Cancellations & Early Bird Check-In Fees

Rising Star

@Famdangocruiser if Southwest cancelled your flight then you are entitled to a refund if you request it.  You need to get in touch with their Twitter or Facebook teams, or call Customer Relations (it's a different phone number than the normal customer service number).


See this thread for an example of a successful refund:


There is a different thread where a customer had to contact Southwest multiple times (I can't find that thread now) but was eventually refunded.


Please post when it's resolved for you or if you have any problems.
