Southwest Airlines started enforcing a new "no show" policy on Sept. 13.
Passengers who need to cancel a flight must do so at least ten minutes before departure or lose the entire value of their ticket.
According to the Dallas Morning News, passengers were able to skip a flight with no penalty in the past.
The new policy will exclude military and senior fares and travel during bad weather.
