Episode 1597

Leo and family traveled to Las Vegas with Southwest. He bought a super saver fare for $39 one way. It was a great trip. Johnny Jet says the real benefit is that Southwest doesn't charge for the first two bags. So you're in good shape there. Is Southwest in bad shape with the grounding of the 737 Max? Johnny Jet says that it hurt, for sure, but they're still operating, and it may reflect higher ticket prices eventually, but so far it hasn't if you're a savvy traveler. And only 5% of Southwest's fleet is the 737 Max.

Johnny Jet .... Delayed

Johnny Jet was supposed to fly out today, but his flight was delayed. Fortunately, I had alerts from his airline, and TripIt Pro in order to get notified. He was also able to rebook through Dallas in Business Class for almost the cost of coach. He used miles, though. Johnny also recommends renting your car through Costco Travel. The prices will drop as you get closer to your travel date, and you can always cancel and rebook. But stay away from the prepay guarantee. That locks your rate in.

Leo wants to give Johnny Jet a report on using the Shaka Guide and Gypsy Guide apps while in Hawaii.  Leo wasn't thrilled with the Shaka Guide, and the Gypsy Guide was a bit "cutsie." But Leo says that both were helpful with a lot of local information. In areas where you're driving around sightseeing, the Gypsy Guide is like having a guy in the back seat telling you where to go.
