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.)

Just FYI, due to "weather problems"  southwest let me change my flight for free and didn't charge me the difference... My destination is lax. Not sure if it's working for all destinations...
Nice!

If the person who bought the swa companion ticket doesn't show up , can the companion still fly or will the gate agents give the companion a problem?

Nope good for every trip for the calendar year in which it's earned + following calendar year.
