Recovering the diff when fares drop, post-purchase

Fares from Washington DC:

    Q. My husband and I booked two flights on Hawaiian airlines and then the price dropped $150 dollars a ticket. Is there any way to recover the difference in airfare.

    A. The policy for price drop refunds vary from airline to airline. Most airlines charge up to $150 to handle a fare drop situation, assuming it's the same flight/dates; Alaska, Southwest, United and Frontier will refund in the form of a voucher, without deducting a service fee, just so long as your flights/dates do not change. Call Hawaiian (1-800-367-5320) and ask what your options are available to you in your fare class and itinerary.
