Most airlines allow you to cancel within 24 hours with a full refund, just be aware it can take an instant to a couple of weeks for the credit to show up in your account.
Southwest Airlines is awesome for those of us who travel. There's not another airline I know of that caters to us so well. Their policies allowing changes with full credit (available right away) and free baggage have saved me over $1000 in the last year based on the unpredictable nature of this business. The seating has decent leg room and it's easy to snag an emergency row seat of you need the extra inches. They offer complementary beverages, and their sales are amazing too.
Spirit Airlines may be cheap, but you're paying for your bags, and everything else..including the seat itself. You're literally packed in like sardines with no leg, elbow, or even room to lean and take a nap, so it's really not the best choice for longer itineraries and inpatient studies where you're bringing a carry on or checked bag. There's also no wifi (even for a price) and you couldn't get a free glass of water if your life depended on it so bring cash if you want to stay hydrated or a bag of chips, to avoid paying at least $30 for an extra bag to bring your own. Between the lack of space and being unable to recline even slightly, there's also no rest for the weary on those bicoastal red-eyes or fly-in the night before your screen or check-in, so what you save in airfare you spend on lodging if you want to show up in top form.

I thought southwest was really the only airline that allows you to cancel with a refund? what are the others? I have a trip with southwest out and spirit in coming up so good to know...dreading those poor excuse of a tray table on the new spirit seats...basically envelope size.
