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.)

By paying the difference?
Would that be seen as an "upgrade" by Chase for the Ritz Carlton Airline Credit?

If anybody here has ever bought a voucher from southwest, can you please look back to your credit card statement and confirm for me that its coded as a "travel" expense. Thank you very much!!

You should specify which issuer you're looking for.

I book tentative flights from time to time with sw points as you can cancel up to 10 minutes before departure.

Does anyone know how sw luv vouchers and/or gift cards work?
Is there any disadvantage of using them to book and then cancelling? Does it expire sooner or lock it into a certain name?

Thank you

Wth southwest makes you bring the lap child's birth certificate to verify the child's age and issue a boarding pass? None of the other domestic carriers that I have flown on has required this.
