OK, looks like I am at a small decision point here and I would love some liners thoughts…
I’ll start out by saying i don’t think there is a right or wrong answer, just a matter of what side I want to gamble on.
Currently we have a May 24 to May 31 trip booked with airfare through SW. I have stayed up on the flight decreases and keep rebooking. At this point, my flights are $20 pp from the min’s for that flight ($178 pp). SW has opened up the window to allow me to change to any date and any flight as long as i keep the same destination.
We also have a back-up trip for July 19 to 27 booked directly through Disney. There is also a possibility of a rebook through DVC, would aim for those same July dates, but nothing is a lock there.
So my dilemma is do I change my flights to my back-up date now to secure my sweet prices on my flights? The upside is I lock in the flight prices and save a ton of $/pts. The downside is if they do open prior to my dates, I would need to flip the flights back and what would be the price/availability.
At this point, I think the bigger possibility is they open this summer and July flights start to rise. Opening by May 24 seems like such a pipe dream at the moment.
What would you do? Would you swap flights now to lock in the lower cost forJuly?
