Southwest is ready to fill planes again, with middle seats only staying blocked through Thanksgiving.
That means they'll be open for Christmas and New Year's travel. Passengers who already have tickets for December and beyond will be emailed tomorrow and given the option of a refund. Those who buy a seat after the policy begins will be alerted if the flight is full.
American and United have also stopped limiting ticket sales. Only Delta and Alaska Airlines are reducing capacity still, but Alaska Airlines ends that January 6th.
