they'll even rebook you on other carriers if necessary.
Does WN have an interline agreement now?

|Quoting Tomassjc (Reply 49):|
Yes, just idle chatter overheard at the neighbor's ticket counter.
|Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 51):|
When I worked as CSA, we had customers from United and US Airways coming over to us, and the Station Manager from that airline would call us and say "hey we're booking some seats on you guys..." and WN would send paxs over too if needed.
|Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 37):|
It's simple on Southwest, wait for them to call your group for boarding, you line up in your reserved spot, then you get on board. I won't deny the no assigned seating, that's not for everyone.
|Quoting Tomassjc (Reply 54):|
We have a Southwest Credit Card on file at our station just for that reason. WN will NOT honor other airline tickets, we have to buy seats on them when we need to protect our customers.
|Quoting cschleic (Reply 53):|
Weren't there discussions in other threads about an IT system limitation at WN that precluded charging for checked bags? Sounded unlikely, but there was a lot of discussion about it.
|Quoting DocLightning (Reply 55):|
One of the parts I hate about flying is boarding. You have to fight and wait for granny to wrestle her personal anvil into the overhead, blah blah blah. And then you get to your seat and sit there for another interminable 20 minutes while everyone else jostles and schleps and blocks the aisle. It takes FOREVER and I just want to get going to where I need to go.
On WN you board, find a seat, no jostling, no waiting for granny with the anvil. The entire plane can load in ten minutes or less and off you go. And with inflight WiFi and an iPad, I don't need no steeenkin IFE.
One other odd thing I've noticed (tell me if you agree). On WN, I often spend most of the flight sharing fun small talk with my neighbors. On any other airline, we sit in awkward silence right next to each-other. Anyone else notice this?
|Quoting HPRamper (Reply 58):|
The only real difference I see regularly is the chatter from WN gate agents as they try way too hard to amuse the passengers waiting to board.
|Quoting enilria (Thread starter):|
So, do other people do that too? How much do you think that hurts them because carry-on only travelers tend to be business travelers which is exactly the passenger they want?

For instance, the weekend of March 31st, I'm ticketed outbound IAD-MDW-SNA on WN at $180.60 plus taxes ("Wanna Get Away Fare") and I'm ticketed inbound BUR-SFO-IAD on UA at $170.60 plus taxes (L-class fare).

What is of interest to me is by which amount at the end your credit card was charged...., Did it reflect the $10 differential in cost of ticket... otherwise your comparison is biased.
