Not Bozeman either. Southwest has zero flights to WY and MT. Boise is the only option in that three state range on Southwest (make it five and include ND/SD too.) And you cannot get from the East to Boise on a single ticket with Southwest (I've tried, they won't connect it).You’re probably right. It might have been bozeman, not Jackson. But not salt lake or denver.
I have no idea whether it's a single ticket or not. I wasn't the one traveling.And you cannot get from the East to Boise on a single ticket with Southwest (I've tried, they won't connect it).
Starting to plan trip for next spring. Best I can determine JetBlue, frontier, united and southwest all fly direct. What experiences have people had? Frontier is cheap and there is some kids fly free gimmick but I get the feeling they wil killl you on bags and booze. Southwest let's you check two free bags and they count skis and a boot bag as one bag. It will be my wife plus 3 and 7 year old daughters.
I used to fly Jet Blue quite a bit. Even though their schedules don’t suit me the best, they were slightly cheaper than the “majors”.
Then one year, a snow storm hit, and I was stranded in Colorado for 3 days, while all the “majors” cleared their backlog in 24-36 hrs. At the time, my ski buddy out there happened to work at JB. I got the inside scoop of why. At the time, I was an hourly contractor. I lost 3 days pay. At least my buddy was able to fast track me for compensation of my hotel/rental SUV bill.
I also knew a friend got stranded at Jackson by Southwest for A FULL WEEK! Same scenario. I flew out only 1 day late on a “major”. He missed his second trip that was scheduled a week later because he couldn’t get back. No compensation.
Knowing what I know, I will only fly JB or SW when there’s a significant price difference. They’re not in the same class as the majors. I see little difference between the two.
Now Frontier, that’s a whole other level of risk!
Jet Blue and Southwest do not fly into Jackson, nor have they before, so cool internet story bro.
