Southwest Sends Rapid Rewards Members to the Front of the Line

Frequent Flyer A
Southwest Airlines announced today that the carrier’s award-winning frequent flyer program, Rapid Rewards, is offering Members a chance to earn A-List status by booking and flying just five roundtrip flights today through June 15, 2009.  Members who qualify will receive A-List status through December 31, 2009.  A-List Members are automatically checked in for their flights, most likely receiving the coveted “A” Boarding Pass, allowing them to be one of the first to board the aircraft.  A-List Members also have access to “Fly By” airport security lanes where available.  To register for this promotion, visit:  


“Granting A-List status to our Members is our way of rewarding our most frequent flyers,” said Ryan Green, Southwest’s Director of Customer Loyalty. “This promotion offers our Customers a fast track to achieving A-List status and making travel easier.”      


The A-List typically applies to Rapid Rewards Members who fly 16 roundtrips or more within a 12-month period. But for a limited time only, when Members book and fly five roundtrip flights between April 2 to June 15, 2009, Members can earn A-List status through December 31, 2009.  It is fast and easy to earn free travel through Rapid Rewards.  



About Rapid Rewards

Rapid Rewards Members earn credits by flying or using the frequent flyer program’s Preferred Partners.  It takes just eight roundtrips to qualify for an Award, but Members can accelerate their earnings by using the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Visa Signature Card, doing business with any of the airline’s other Preferred Partners, or by purchasing Southwest’s Business Select fares when flying.  Plus, once it’s earned, the Southwest Airlines Award may be transferred by the Member to anyone he/she chooses.  The Award is free but subject to the U.S. government September 11th Security Fee of up to $10 roundtrip.
