Q. I just booked a flight to Chicago from Buffalo with Southwest for travel Sep. 16 to 20. I got it at a cost of 179.40 (including taxes). Now I see I could get it for a lesser price of $118. Is it possible to get refund for the difference?

A. As long as you’re traveling on the same flights and dates, Southwest will refund you the difference in the form of a voucher, good for travel up to a year from the date of the original purchase. JetBlue and Alaska also have this policy, but unfortunately most other domestic airlines will deduct $150 from any fare drop refund they provide to consumers.
