Topic Wiki

This is the thread for all random/general questions about Southwest. The official airline code for Southwest is WN as SW was taken by Air Namibia, but many people on the forums refer to Southwest as SW since no one talks about Air Namibia ever.

For questions about any of the SW CC's, see here.
For questions about the SW Companion Pass, see here.
For questions about auto-checkin to SW flights, see here. (Follow the wiki to learn how to set it up.)

If you use 2 SW vouchers for 1 flight, the system warns you that if you cancel, both vouchers will take on the expiration date of whichever one expires earlier. Is that true?

Anyone ever get an offer from an energy program called Energy Plus? They have some sort of promotion with southwest where you can earn up to 12.5k RR points by switching to there service. All they are is the energy supplier to your local utility company.   ???

It's not a message sent to you, it's in the fine print on the order confirmation page.

Depends on what you book.

If you book a Wanna Get Away fare with points, it is fully refundable.

Yes obviously looking at the cheapest fare. It's fully refundable until 24 hours before the flight?

The hottest domestic route is NYC to MIA.
Southwest is currently to only major US airline that does not fly that route.
The only US airline other than WN that doesn't service MIA/FLL from LGA is United (they have EWR to MIA/FLL/PBI). How long do you think it will take WN to open up a LGA or EWR to FLL route? Do you think they will downgrade service from ISP?

Alaska, Allegiant, Hawaiian and Sun Country Airlines do not fly NYC to MIA/FLL. Virgin is only seasonal from JFK not LGA. And Southwest serves FLL year round from Islip and has no competition there.

"Major Airline". Allegiant & Sun Country aren't in that category.  As far as I am concerned AS isn't either. You can't be considered a major airline when you service us focused on 8 cities or less or if you service a city every 3rd Wednesday of a month that has 31 days and is a leap year. Additionally,  the airlines you mentioned don't service LGA already.
