I was flying out from LAX International. They had other flights running but none available and they only cancelled mine. We even checked surrounding airports and the customer service could not help me. The airport type and location was not a factor here. Thanks for the tip though.

Southwest cancelled my flight 3 hours in advance and could not rebook another one until the next day, which for a short weekend trip essentially ruined my vacation by subtracting one night from my two night trip. They will not reimburse you for any rebooked flights on other airlines (which are 5x to 10x more expensive when last minute/same day), and they will not reimburse your hotel rooms for the missed night. They have had a mass of last minute flight cancellations summer 2021, and they do nothing whatsoever to compensate you for your ruined trip or travel plans. The % possibility your flight will be cancelled with Southwest is very high. If you have an important trip coming up that cannot be delayed or cancelled, ABSOLUTELY DO NOT BOOK SOUTHWEST. Absolutely terrible cancellation policies and no compensation whatsoever, plus high risk of last minute cancellations. Tons of articles about Southwest's terrible operations this summer: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/southwest-airlines-canceled-2600-flights-june-crews-theyre/story?id=78629900
