It will be no time before you get the Companion Pass! That is one very unique perk SWA has, can fly someone with you FOR FREE! (vacay with bae!)

Set an alarm to check in otherwise you'll have to gate check your bags if you're beyond group B.

Buy business select seat. You get A1-A15 boarding automatically. Plenty of seats will be available, you also get a drink coupon with it. And you can check in whenever you want because you are business select. Also gives you priority lane for security of you don't have Global Entry or TSA Pre. It's not that bad and their points system is great you make A list rather quickly and the companion pass is legit.

Pwc's travel site automatically checks you in so you're likely to get an early boarding slot and be fine

Pay for early bird if they won't approve business select

@Deloitte 1 DAMN RIGHT

Also if you get their credit card you can use your SW to buy international flights through a 3rd party, I went to turkey and India. Round trip to Europe for about 80,000 SW points

For flying*

Stand at your spot in line. Sit down at the first available seat, including aisle seats. Put your bag up at the first available spot.

Thanks Pwc 1. Do you know if PwC requires us to buy wanna get away fares? (Vs business select or anytime)

Not sure but almost positive it's a negotiated fare that is much less restrictive than wanna get away. I think in many cases (when the fee diff is less than $100) it defaults to the business select or fully refundable fare

Gotcha. Thanks! Anyone know if SWA status matches or challenges?

Try to get pre board for a bs reason like most of the people do on southwest.

PwC has an account with Swabiz.com you can use and buy business select

@pwc2 yup. You book through concur and in there it gives you the business select option, but it's significantly more $$$

Swabiz doesn't take much off the Business Select price, but has wanna get away prices a little longer
