As the CEO and president of BBF&K Consulting, a firm that provides guidance to organizations on fundraising strategies, outreach, and program development, Ann Korando regularly takes to the skies to meet with clients. She chooses Southwest because she can easily accommodate her changing schedule by modifying her flights without penalties. Ann’s favorite part about being a Southwest Customer is redeeming her Rapid Rewards points—she’s one of 11 kids, so she often uses points to buy tickets for family members so they can visit. Thanks for your loyalty, Ann. We’re proud to connect you to what’s important in your life!


—Alyssa Comins, Communications & Outreach

Friendly Flight “I haven’t met a wall that I didn’t like to talk to. I actually earned a new client by chatting with the person next to me onboard.”
