Correction: The Companion ticket cannot be made in the name of the member who earned the points, and companion travel is only valid together with the member that earned the pass!

“this sounds like a crazy deal.
can southwest flights be used on someone elses name?
and I guess the companion is just for you.
I like the way you think!
Southwest’s reward tickets can be used by anyone, while the companion pass has to made out in one person’s name.
While you can change the name on the companion pass, it is not the easiest of processes, and it can only be changed 3 times.
Therefore, it may very well be worthwhile to make out the companion pass in your own name, and then just hop along for free when anyone else flies Southwest and together with whoever uses the 6 free Southwest Round-Trip tickets.
Whether you make out the companion pass in your name or someone else’s you will definitely get your money’s worth out of the 40,000 Starpoints or 50,000 AMEX/Continental miles.
Who will you make your Companion pass for? Post a comment!
