For those of you who, like me, have to fly to GenCon, Southwest just opened their bookings this morning through August 6. I was thrilled to find that they now have a direct (non-stop) flight from our area to Indy! 

We are all booked and ready to go!

Everything is showing sold out for me on those dates for southwest. I know that's not the case though.

There are apparently some issues. I was able to book GenCon airfare with no problem at 8:30 am Eastern this morning, but since then, it has gone down.

I'd think there'd be some discount for booking this early...

The earlier you book, the better your Early Bird position.

Also, with Southwest, if the price goes down, you can get an adjustment and you'll have the difference refunded as Southwest credit. 

In our case, we wanted the only direct/nonstop flight on Tuesday the 31st and Monday the 6th, so we booked those.

Not as bad as I thought. Booked.

Sadly, there are not non-stops for next year like there were for last year.

The wanna get away fares are cheapest at this point. They will go up.
