Congratulations to your team, Michelle. I have competed in this race 3 times and the amount of gear you need to have for just one person is a lot. The idea of flying with that gear for 4 people is not one I would want to entertain. That is awesome to know that you were able to do it without extra costs with Southwest.
Southwest doesn't allow multiple bookings for the same passenger, same day. As a result of the new reservation system, they are now enforcing this policy by automatically cancelling such flights (reports are they cancel the most expensive of the conflicting flights).You won't be able to double-book anymore on Southwest.
This message is shown online when selecting your flights:
Prohibition of Multiple/Conflicting Reservations: To promote seat availability for our Customers, Southwest prohibits multiple reservations for the same Passenger departing from the same city on the same date, or any multiple reservations containing conflicting or overlapping itineraries (such as departures for the same Customer from multiple cities at the same time). Furthermore, without advance notice to the Passenger or purchaser, Southwest may cancel such reservations, or any other reservations that it believes, in its sole discretion, were made without intent to travel. With the exception of Southwest gift cards, funds from proactively cancelled reservations by Southwest will be returned to the original form of payment. Reservations paid for with a Southwest gift card will have the amount applied from the gift card held as travel funds for use by the Customer on a future Southwest Airlines flight.
Thank you for the fast reply!
Travel from Germany to Cuba is not an issue at all.We need to buy the Tourist Card (travel agency 30€) and a valid passport.
The Tourist Card is looking exact like the one provided by CTS,but there is no need to choose
one of the 12 reason for traveling.
Our Government don't want to know what we are planing to do in Cuba.
For me it would be perfect to use my (german) Tourist Card,book the flight with SouthWest,
and travel from Florida...
Could this plan work? Or is the US Government checking my Tourist Card?
Thanks in advance and all the best for 2017,
