Michelle's posts about how many major airlines have raised their prices after the FAA
stopped collecting airfare taxes just makes my blood boil.
But that information offers a good reminder that monitoring the price of tickets can pay off, even after they have been purchased.
Some airlines will refund or offer credits toward future purchases if a fare decreases in price after you buy it --- even if it is technically a 'nonrefundable' fare.
, I found a list on Airfarewatchdog.com
of the airlines that do, including the change fees they charge and the form of the refund.
Most people are familiar with Southwest's policy, but according to the chart, AirTran
does too, in keeping with its new corporate overlords.
