WN/FL FF Integration...Any News?

Mon Oct 17, 2011 8:24 pm

Belonging to both Rapid Rewards (WN) and A+ Rewards (FL) has there been any news on the integration front?

Obviously WN is waiting to see the outcome of the pilot vote in November before we see any hardcore integration of the two systems, but I wonder what sort of credits A+ members will accrue with RRs.

WN switched over to a "dollars spent = points" system where A+ has a hybrid "dollars spent + segment = points" system.

Will WN go back thru FL records, check the $$$ spent and simply convert that to new RR's points or is there some other formula they may apply?

Has anyone heard anything or have any opinions on the matter?
Three Swallows will get you there.

In a first step toward blending frequent flyer programs, Kelly announced top-tier members of both carriers’ frequent flyer loyalty programs– A-List Members of Southwest’s All New Rapid Rewards and elite A+ Members of AirTran’s A+ Rewards–will enjoy some, limited reciprocal benefits when flying on either carrier beginning today.

A-List benefits include extra Rapid Reward points, Priority Boarding, access to priority security lanes, and more. On the flip side, Southwest A-List and A-List Preferred Members booking on AirTran will get Free Business Class upgrades, no baggage fees, and all other benefits that AirTran’s elite Members enjoy.

Also, Air Tran will stop selling and announcing the Cred Card A+ Visa, and switch to Rapid Reward soon, signs showing A+ Visa will begin going down off websites and Airport Signage.

Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who go AFTER it!
