Congratulations and thank you for your loyalty! Great to hear that you are enjoying sequential boarding. Once you become A-List, your companion will be assigned a boarding position sequential to yours. The only things that would cause that to not happen would be 1) you add your companion after your boarding position being was already assigned, 2) you purchase a Business Select fare, or 3) you purchase Upgraded Boarding

As travelers continue returning to the sky, we know that flexibility and ease have become even more important to their travel journey. We announced our commitment in May to enhance our entire Customer Experience, from shopping and booking flights, to check-in, traveling onboard, and to the arrival at the destination. As part of this transformation, we are excited to announce that Customers will now be able to skip the line and go online to secure an Upgraded Boarding position!
On Aug. 22, we launched Upgraded Boarding Self-Service. Customers now have the option to secure Upgraded Boarding through the Southwest Mobile App, and Southwest.com for all Customers traveling on our Anytime, Wanna Get Away ® , or Wanna Get Away Plus™ fares. Moreover, Customers still have the option to purchase Upgraded Boarding from a Customer Service Agent at the gate prior to their flight departure, pending availability.
Top Three Ways to Get a Better Boarding Position
Have you ever had that moment where you forget to check in and end up with a “C” boarding position? Well, fret no more, as we have a few secrets to share that will allow you to be one of the first to secure your desired seat!
Upgraded Boarding: Upgraded Boarding gives Customers the ability to upgrade their boarding position (now online and at the gate) to A1-A15 up to 24 hours before the flight depending on availability. This allows Customers the opportunity to be among the first to board the aircraft, pick their preferred available seat, and access the overhead bin space.
When available, Upgraded Boarding can easily be added to a reservation when checking in for a flight via the Southwest® app or Southwest.com.
Open the Southwest app and select the “Check-In” icon at the bottom of the screen. Enter the confirmation number and verify the flight information displayed is correct. When available, the Upgraded Boarding position option is located below “View Boarding Pass.” Once selected and as available, Upgraded Boarding can be added to one or more flight segments in the itinerary.
On Southwest.com, navigate to the “Check-In” window and enter the confirmation number. The Upgraded Boarding option is displayed below the flight’s itinerary.
Customers can also purchase Upgraded Boarding from a Customer Service Agent at the departure gate or ticket counter prior to their flight.
NOTE: Upgraded Boarding can only be purchased within 24 hours of the flight’s departure time, depending on availability. Upgraded Boarding sales will end 30 minutes before departure.
EarlyBird ® Check-In: EarlyBird Check-In offers automatic check-in before our traditional 24-hour check-in. Customers can add EarlyBird Check-In to their reservation up to 36 hours prior to a flight’s scheduled departure.
Got bags? We've got room. By boarding earlier, you'll get your pick of available overhead bin space.
NOTE: EarlyBird Check-In pricing starts at $15. Pricing may vary based on the popularity and length of each (one-way) flight.
Business Select ® : Business Select fares include automatic check-in and priority boarding (A1-A15), as well as many more benefits. Visit Southwest.com to purchase Business Select.

Offering Legendary Customer Service and warm Hospitality is at the core of Southwest Airlines. As travelers continue returning to the sky, we’re thrilled to offer our Customers a new product that provides what they want—more choice and more flexibility.
Our new fourth fare, Wanna Get Away Plus, is a modest buy-up from Wanna Get Away and introduces transferable flight credit(s), a new benefit that enables Customers to transfer an eligible unused flight credit to another Rapid Rewards Member for future use. 1 Wanna Get Away Plus also provides more flexibility through same-day confirmed change and same-day standby 2 , allowing Customers to make same-day changes to a flight between the same cities with no price difference in the base fare. Customers have more earning power than Wanna Get Away fares with 8X Rapid Rewards® points. Additionally, we’re also enhancing benefits to our Anytime and Business Select® fares. These fares now have the same transferable flight credit benefit as Wanna Get Away Plus, and Anytime fares now gain EarlyBird Check-In 3 , Priority Lane 4 , and Express Lane 5 benefits. Additionally, Tier Members (A-List /A-List Preferred Customers) now receive same-day confirmed change in addition to existing perks like same-day standby 6 .
We continue to maintain existing benefits offered on all Southwest fares, including two free checked bags 7 , no change fees 8 , and free TV/movies/messaging 9 .

Are you looking for a career with Heart? Southwest Airlines is hiring, and we want to meet you! Whether you’re actively searching for a job or passively keeping tabs on opportunities available to you, we want you to know us too. We asked Jonathan Clarkson, Vice President Marketing Loyalty & Products, to share why he loves his job, the People he works with, and Southwest! We hope his words inspire you and share insight into our Company’s Culture, Values, and goals.
It’s an exciting year at Southwest Airlines and I’m grateful for the work our Marketing Teams accomplish each day. I look forward to welcoming new Employees to our Marketing Department and the Southwest Family this year. In my 14 years at Southwest, we’ve grown our products, improved our programs, and fostered incredible relationships within the Marketing Loyalty & Products space. Adding new talent and preparing for future growth makes me reflect on my first career steps and the important lessons I learned along the way.
Long before I joined the Southwest Family, I started out as a grocery bagger. Whether grabbing the last ingredient to complete a recipe or shopping to stock your pantry, I greeted customers as the smiling face at the end of the register, ready to ask the age-old question— “Paper or plastic”? It’s there that I started to learn some of the lessons that I still use today:
Similar to an onion in the produce department, every career has layers. There’s a reason milk goes on the bottom of the grocery bag—it all starts with a sturdy foundation. At Southwest, our People supporting and rooting for each other is the foundation to our success.
Efficiency and innovation are always on the “shopping list.” Without efficiency and innovation, there’s no growth, no forward momentum. My Team and I always try to stay a step ahead of our Customers and our competitors so we can continue providing the best Southwest Experience and the best industry experience.
The voice of our People matters. Whether that’s someone giving feedback that their produce, in fact, shouldn’t go at the bottom of the bag, or someone on my Team sharing a new idea to improve one of our products, their opinions matter. Southwest is a maverick in the airline industry, and we’re proud of that difference and the voices that allow us to strive to be better than yesterday.
I’m thankful for my days bagging groceries and getting my start. I’m even more grateful that I can take those experiences and impact Southwest. We each bring a unique perspective and experience everywhere we go. The People of Southwest are some of the most innovative, driven, and brightest in the world. We’re searching for the best talent out there to join our Marketing Department, and we’d love to hear how your experiences can influence our Team. Visit our Marketing page to learn more and register to receive notifications as new opportunities to our join our Teams become available. I’m excited about our future and the new experiences to come for Southwest!

If Southwest wishes to remain open, honest, ethical, and customer friendly - THEN - ...the simplest thing to do is to PUBLISH THE VARIABLE EARLY BIRD PRICE FOR EVERY FLIGHT RIGHT NEXT TO THE BASE PRICE FOR THAT EXACT FLIGHT AND TIME Now it appears one must buy the ticket before finding out what the REAL price of the flight is. That's one reason this otherwise rational policy seems so devious and unfair. I have been flying SW for at least 30 years and have never seen a policy like this - that I can recall. SW did very well to keep from using assigned seats, etc, after TSA and others demanded more specific data, so they are good at simplifying things and keeping costs low But this policy and the way it has been enacted seem hidden, devious, tricky and very much NOT Southwest's typical ethical approach. Of course this will raise data processing costs, but that's the problem management must face if they want to remain ethical POST THE EXACT EARLY BIRD PRICE FOR EVERY FLIGHT RIGHT NEXT TO THE PRICE THAT'S THE ONLY FAIR THING TO DO

THIS DOES NOT BENEFIT ME AT ALL. If you believe this benefits anyone but SWA, you are crazy. If you are purchasing business fares, then you probably do not care about applying your rapid rewards to the the purcahse of the ticket. Spirit looks more attractive all of the time.

Good morning SWA, I was well aware of the SWA companion pass coupled with the Marriott flight & hotel packages which would allow redeeming Marriott points for 7 nights @ a Marriott property & so many SWA points. Earning 110,000 or more points would qualify for a Companion Pass. Obviously SWA modified the T&C's early last year as evidenced on this string but it appears a "selective" communication went out to RR customers informing them that the program was being modified but RR members had until 3/31/17 to take action to obtain a companion pass. My disappoint is that it appears SWA did not make a general annoucement on this change because if they had I would have acted upon it. I actually called the SWA RR phone line earlier this week (on 1/2/18) and spoke to a representaive and asked them a direct question about the Marriott/SWA program and he confirmed to me (verbally) that if I transferred 270,000 Marriott points I would obtain 120,000 SWA RR points and I would qualify for a CP for calendar 2018 & 2019. Obviously some of your reps are not up to speed on all of the nuances to these programs. As a loyal long time SWA flyer and SWA council participant I am making this request. Because I was not made aware of these changes to the program & SWA this past week informed me that my actions would result in a Companion Pass I am requesting I qualify for a Companion Pass for calendar 2018 (I will not request 2019) as anyone who took action early last year would have gotten '17 & '18 which would have included me if I had known about this previous impending change. Thank you in advance for any consideration on this matter.

Let’s reminisce on 2011. What comes to mind? The Royal Wedding? Adele becoming a household name? Saying farewell to Harry, Ron, Hermione and everyone from Hogwarts?
For us at Southwest, 2011 was a memorable year, but not because Rebecca Black forcefully reminded us how awesome “Friday” was. It was five years ago that Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards loyalty program was relaunched to what it is today; the program was redesigned to offer newer, better, more competitive benefits.
Our Rapid Rewards program has been pretty impressive the last few years, but if you’re a Rapid Rewards Member you know that. We’ve flown 14 million zero-fare passengers; that is more award passengers than American Airlines/US Airways, Alaska, and JetBlue combined! With such great benefits, naturally, our program is being recognized. No other airline has won more Freddie Awards since 2013. Moreover, The Wall Street Journal called our Companion Pass “The Best Perk in Travel” (WSJ, February 2016).
In case those facts weren’t impressive enough, the number of Rapid Rewards Members has more than doubled since launching the new Program. In order words, it took us almost 25 years (1987-2011) to enroll the same number of Members that we have added in the last 5 years (2011-2015).
Despite the great success, we are continuously looking to enhance the program to satisfy YOU--our loyal Customer. In December 2015, we launched the capability for our Rapid Rewards Members to donate their points to a select group of charities. Since the launch, our charities have received more than five million Rapid Rewards Points directly from our Members.
Thanks to our Rapid Rewards Members for five great years. We can’t wait to see what the future holds! For more information about the Rapid Rewards Program visit: www.southwest.com/rapidrewards and to vote for Rapid Rewards in the Freddie Awards visit www.vote.freddieawards.com.

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!

Once converted to Rapid Rewards credits, is there a way to get to 16 credits and an award ticket? Can Rapid Rewards points be used to generate the 3 additional needed credits?

What you think of business that loses it morality, honesty and integrity when their CEO becomes Chairman Emeritus? Mr. Kelleher in tough times started an airline company, kept it profitable and grew market share in almost every quarter he led. He had very honest hard working attitude and not only listened to his customers but ensured that he treats them right.
Changes have come to this Airline and every time I feel dejected I use other airlines and try it again because I still get good dividends. However, I am very vocal and do not contain anything that I feel is wrong and speak out.
I just travelled to celebrate Diwali to Oakland and came back and again I felt that I have to create account here and speak out, why? Because with Mr. Kelleher gone, I think the spirit, Luv, honesty and airlines honesty and loyalty to customers is gone. Yes, I believe in Credo that says, "We will treat our customers fair, our employees equal and always produce profit for our shareholders." How can I justify a company where its CEO and President starts making 400% from his predecessor and customer is denied his rightfully earned drink coupon that has expired but HERB KELLEHER had accepted that even after five years of expiry in the past? How will you think of this airline which does not allowed money that you spent for your kids ticket and did not use it for your own ticket and will keep your money since your son did not fly in one of its sectors for 12 months? Will you not call it pure rip-off?
What will you call this airline that was about to give you a free ticket when you took next flight because you had earned enough credits and then changed rules and now you have taken a flight, gotten additional points from hotel but still cannot get that credit and it did not allow the amount that you lost for points or transfer of points even after being pointed out? Well would you not go NUTS if it is the same airline that you one time loved and will not want to think about it now?
Yes, this airline is SOUTWEST AIRLINE, where Mr. Kelleher is Chairman Emeritus but helpless? And yes my old coupons were rejected for one drink, not pint and I have yet to see how to get that ticket?
