Retirement question

Adventurer A

I'm still a ways off from retirement, but I have a question. Do employees need 10 years of service to qualify for lifetime flight benefits or is it dependent on age? I've heard different things and not sure how it works.

Does anyone in this group have the answer?

Your employee manual should be clear on this topic.  However, it is subject to change as Southwest's financial condition deteriorates.


Every seat is lost revenue.

Please excuse @floridaguy for being less than helpful, that's just how he is. In an attempt to actually be helpful and answer your question I would suggest you look on SWA Life as you'll have more employees there. This Community is primarily a customer to customer forum.
