Release of tickets

New Arrival

I plan to travel in April, the 11-19 of 2020. Currently, the fares for early April, through the 13th will be released soon. Considering I am traveling past the 13th, should I purchase a one way ticket for the 11th and then purchase the return ticket later once those fares are released?


Thank you!

I would personally take that approach. One of the benefits of flying Southwest is that you pay the same price whether you book one round trip or you book two separate one way segments. Having the one ways booked will also make it easier for you to take advantage of any future fare decreases too.  Note that you will have two separate booking numbers with this approach.  Hope you are going somewhere great!
