@Allyn, they have to keep your credits with your confirmation numbers since the credits expire a year after the original reservation date. So if confirmation number ABCD123 is 9/24 and XYZ6789 is from 8/23, you would have to travel by 8/23 if you used funds from both. Otherwise, you could make all the reservations you want and not show and keep building an account, that would be great because you could keep locking in very low fares and not ever travel which would cost the airline $$$ because they would need to keep filling your empty seats with last minute or non-rev passengers. Having that expiration date at least limits the amount of time you can do that, also, I can lock in a reservation with Southwest, get a cheaper deal every once in a while with another airline for the same flight, not show up for my SW flight and I still can use my "credit" for a year past the reservation date to anywhere I want, doesn't even have to be the same cities and no penalties!!! That's a scam?????
