I am just unstoppable today!

Booked 3 WN flights. Was 1 point short, obviously not gonna transfer in 1k points for that. Called them up, and they were happy to book it over the phone for me.

Best part? Instead of adding 1 point to my account, they lowered the price of each flight by 1 point.

Now I have 2 Southwest points in my account!

Yup.  F YQ matches Y YQ, but J YQ is full.  Bizarre stuff.

Any other routes? Or "Bizzare stuff" we need to know about?

And does JL do the same to this route?

Honestly with AC being so cheap, it's probably smarter even with the YQ.
