You lost me as a customer because I didn’t have tickets I could transfer there were no options. I am out 1500.00 because of no help from you the people who I bought the tickets for are no longer part of my family thank you so much for your help today I am glad I closed my credit card with you

I encourage you to look up the policy regarding transferring tickets and/or funds to people OTHER than those originally ticketed on ANY U.S. airline...

Unfortunately for you, you will find that all major U.S. carriers have a non-transferrable policy.... therefore, if you choose to write off Southwest simply because of THAT policy.... I doubt you will ever find another airline to fly.


If you do... please let us know.

There are options if you are cordial with the ticket owners, but it sounds like you are not.  When a ticket is purchased in a person's name, they become the owner of any funds from a cancellation, typical with most airlines.  If it was an I wanna get away + fare, and assuming they had a rapid rewards account, then these are deposited into their rapid rewards account and available to transfer to someone else.  If they are not I wanna get away plus, you could purchase a new flight that is an IWG+ and it would become transferrable if cancelled.  If you think you will have better luck with Delta I wish you the best.  You will have to purchase a non-refundable ticket (which you could have done on SW too).  Delta also has change fees so expect about $200 to just change the ticket on top of any new fare for a new flight for the ticket owner and they are also not transferrable to another person .
