Historically, Southwest Airlines' flights would never show up on aggregate flight search engines like Skyscanner, Hipmunk, Expedia, etc. So when flying from city A to city B within the US, my process has always been:
- Search on Skyscanner, Momondo, Hipmunk, etc.
- Search on Southwest Airlines' website.
Today I was in the process of doing just that, and I searched Skyscanner for flights from BWI to Detroit on 10 January 2017. To my surprise, I found search results for Southwest!
Is this a Skyscanner-only perk, a quirk of timing, or can I now rely on being able to find Southwest fares on sites other than Southwest's? (And, eg, remove step 2 from my travel planning process above.)
