Like every other airline, Southwest has too many employees and not enough flyers - courtesy the virus.

 

Hope that enough take the voluntary programs so that Southwest can remain the only airline  the US that has never had an involuntary RIF.

I doubt it's enough, but I've made an effort to continuously buy RR points.  Since they don't expire, it's just really like moving money into a savings account.  And since I use my RR credit card I get additional points that way.  I wish there was more I could do that benefits both of us.  I will keep buying points.  I have done this every month since March.
