"Points can only be earned by the person whose name appears in the Rapid Rewards account and who actually travels, regardless of who purchased or paid for the ticket. Member will not earn points for travel by another Southwest Airlines Customer or Rapid Rewards Member, even if the Member paid for the other person's travel."

 

"To earn points for each Southwest Airlines flight, Member must provide his/her Rapid Rewards account number when making his/her reservation or prior to commencement of travel. No points will be issued to a Member if the name on the government-issued photo identification does not match the name on the Rapid Rewards account."

 

"The actual number of points earned for each individual flight is calculated after completion of the entire ticket and is based on the final dollar amount paid for the base fare and fare product purchased for that flight. Taxes and fees imposed by the United States and foreign governments, including airport-assessed Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs), federal segment fees, the government-imposed September 11th Security Fee, and other taxes and fees are not eligible to earn points."

 

If you paid for the flight and completed the travel, I would say yes!

Yes.

 

You will earn them based on the fare class and amount paid when you originally booked your flight.
