Rapid Rewards: Flying Among the Best!

???????????????????????????? Imagine a frequent flier program where blackout dates are nonexistent, where every seat is an award seat, and you can use your points to fly to any of 93 destinations in the U.S. and Caribbean on the largest domestic airline in America. Sound too good to be true?  Welcome to Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, one of the most decorated frequent flier programs in the industry—but you don’t have to take just our word for it.  Today, U.S. News & World Report's 2014 rankings of the Best Airline Rewards Programs recognized Rapid Rewards as one of the best programs in the country. This recognition is not given lightly.  The Airline Rewards Programs ranking methodology considers several components, such as airline quality ratings, geographic coverage, free flight options, added benefits, and ease of earning a free round-trip flight.  Ten of the strongest airline rewards programs were considered, and in the end, Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards emerged near the top as one of the very best. While this is an honor for our Company and Employees, we also think it’s a special victory for you, our Customers.  We are dedicated to taking our Legendary Customer Service to new heights and new destinations, and we can’t—and wouldn’t want to—grow without you!
