I have flown 244 segments with SWA since 1/1/06 till the present. However, seeing the new Freedom frequent flyer ticket rule that takes 2 frequent flyer ticket to get 1 frequent flyer trip has now changed my thinking about SWA.
Prior to 2006, I was a chairmans member in 2005 with America West/US Air. All of my travel is business related and most always at the full fare. America West had the audacity to have me pay for two frequent flyers tickets that I cancelled within three hours of making the reservation to get the mileage returned to my account.
Now the major airline marketing geniuses have landed at SWA and come up with the wonderful Freedom frequent flyer program! Unfortunately, for the anti-Herb types operating SWA now, I will be moving my flying around. I am certain that my business as one simple passenger it is insignificant.
I really enjoyed the simple service and the easy frequent flyer tickets. When SWA now operates like US Air, it is time to look at all the airlines through rose colored glasses!
