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.)

Another question, if I'm aiming for a CP with 110k RR points, what happens if I use some my points before that? Is the idea of 110k RR points to accumulate that amount as a final number, or is it about earning that amount altogether even if some was spent in the interim?
Earn not have. Spend away!

Yay!!!
Can you also answer my first question if spending RR points will earn me more spending points? Or is that asking for too much?

No. We're all looking for an airline that'll do that

Does SW have any night-time flights out of LGA/ISP/EWR flying westward? I don't care which city cuz it's a stop and I want to book the second leg of the trip with a different airline.

I tried numerous destination airports and none have past 4 pm departure. I would be interested in motze shabbos March 2.

They have a daily evening flight from either LGA or EWR to STL. I think it leaves around 6-7pm or so.

If I understand you correctly - no, you cannot use gift cards or travel funds to buy the early bird. But if you have a SW preferred card you can buy early bird at the airport and they will rebate it to you up to 4x in a year.

On a Southwest flight that says "stopover - no plane change", I am allowed to off the plane and then back on? Will I loose my seat and what happens to my boarding position number?

I have a "Sunday" Southwest flight and Southwest changed it and made it a stopover.
Maybe I should ask the cancel the Early Bird that I paid for then?

Sure, try.  Their customer service is usually very accomodating.

We did one of those a few years back flying from BWI to SNA and they allowed me to get off in PHX and get back on.
