Southwest is for peasants

like

I do it every week. I love it. They are my favorite. Most especially if you can buy business select until you reach a list preferred. I've brought my SO on so many trips with me with the companion pass. I love southwest.

Love southwest. United is my number one, but southwest is much better for smaller airports. Flying into Burbank is way better than LAX

like

As much as I can - much prefer SW to other domestic carriers

like

I prefer Southwest.

like

Love swa! They were my client and I fly them every week now. Points add up fast and are the easiest to use. Customer service is unmatched. Got delayed and they gave me $100 voucher I doubt American would do that

like

Pair that with the southwest credit card and it seems like a solid points program

like

Don't let the haters deter you. I work for KPMG I fly out of Laguardia. I always have a spot for my bag, the customer service is excellent, the points structure is unmatched. I just sent my whole family on vacation for 50,000 points and I make that back in a little more than a month

like

I ❤️ SWA. Fly them weekly

like

The BF flies southwest for work and he loves it. He's a list preferred and has a companion pass 🙌

M1 can I ask what firm you're with? And what city you fly out of?

I do it. I hate the boarding but their routes are convenient for me.

It seems like free flights are easier to get though. I fly United right now and most one way flights are 25k points versus Southwest a lot of flights are 10k points one way plus the companion pass seems solid

You can use chase sapphire reserve for SW points, so no need to actually fly SW to get free SW flights. Better to diversify with a major for more international leisure options IMO

Do those of you using Southwest feel you're losing out in terms of international travel?

Also you can use SWA points to fly internationally on other airlines. Dubai, Hawaii, China and the conversion rate is great.

Wait really which airlines? On their site it says only SW flights

Good the point guy SWA points on other airlines. It'll link you. I think it's awardhq or something. You have to have a SWA rapid rewards account though.

*google

Do you guys use the Southwest credit card too? Using the Citi 2% cashback right now and not sure if the switch is worth it
