5+ Reasons to Fly Southwest Airlines

For those unfamiliar with Southwest Airlines, this is a good summary of why you should fly them.


The biggest advantage of Southwest is not even on the list: For my wife and I, it is the Companion Pass…when I fly SWA, she flies for just $5.60. No matter if I pay money or points, no matter where I fly, her ticket is just $5.60.

Many Southwest passengers like the free checked luggage feature of SWA flights, and we occasionally find it useful.
