It seemed strange the first time we used SWA, but we use them almost exclusively now, because their flts are so cheap (comparatively) and we use their credit cards and build up points quickly.
I think I get it now, thanks!! We probably won't fly them again, but we did the credit card for the 50000 so it worked great. They don't fly direct to anywhere from here, so normally we wouldn't do it.
So, we don't have to do the cattle call line up until they are starting to board, when they call our group?

Yes - that's right. You'll print out your boarding pass at home (you said you were doing Early Bird Check-in, right?). It will have your boarding Letter - probably A or B and a number after it... When they call that particular letter/number, you can line up to board.

You'll find that people with higher letters will start lining up before their time - so just make sure you're where you need to be....

Have a great trip!

Would love a SW code for August 15-23 for a family of three. I've been scouring the net, and man, things are crazy expensive this year! I'll also keep my eyes peeled for new discounts to share. Thanks!

I have looked through this thread sporatically, not entirely, and I can't understand what these codes are you guys are talking about. Can someone please explain? We are needing to fly to NY from RDU August 16th, 3 people. If anyone has a code that we could possibly use to save some money we would be so, so grateful!

Are you signed up for Ding? Soemtimes they have Ding fares.
We are flying Aug. 11 (RDU-FLL) and back on Aug.19. I managed to get good fares. I've had two adjustments so far. The flight on the 19th is high for the one I'm booked on.

Erika---Where are you going?

I am signed up for DING but for some reason everytime I hear the "ding" and try to open it on my desktop computer it tells me an error has occurred. I've even uninstalled and re-installed DING but it doesn't seem to help.

Sometimes I have trouble with it too! Try opening from time to time, sometimes it will show a ding when you do.
Do you have a smartphone? They have an app.

Gee, why am I not shocked that SWA made us wait all this time and then ONLY opened up 8 weeks of booking??

In case anyone missed it upthread, you can still get a $20 discount per RT ticket with Coke Rewards (need 100 pts).

Has anyone taken advantage of the $20 off per R/T flight using my coke rewards? We are trying to get as many codes from coke products as we can but I was just reading about it on SW and this says...

on website...$20 discount valid for one-time use at southwest.com or SWABIZ.com off the total amount of a Wanna Get Away roundtrip fare purchase before taxes and fees.

My question is, can I use the points for $20 off for each member in my family? I think we will have 60 points and there are 3 of us so I am hoping I can us it for each one of us.
