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.)

I booked a Wanna geta away fair instead of a anytime fair to redeem Arrival points. Seems like I can cancel the ticket and I will get a credit to use within the year. Can you extend that credit by booking another ticket and then cancelling it? Can I book a ticket for someone else with that credit?

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Ask them to put you on a direct flight

They did but 5 hours later. I have standby options but unlikely I get on them. Worst case scenario I go to airspace lounge for  a few hours I have plat card.

I want to buy SW tickets with my UR points. I don't have an account with SW and it asks for a promo code (if I have one..)
Is this the best way to buy the tickets or buy them from UR?

create a SW account and then transfer your UR into it, then book.
