    Companion Pass won’t work I guess because it’s not “operated” by Southwest.

    Generally you are correct.
    However in this case Southwest explicitly has stated that will not be the case.

    @Anonymous:
    These miles arent really sellable due to the fact that theres no business class, southwest only flies domestically and that the miles are based on the price and not a flat rate (which can be good or bad) i.e. a 150 dollar ticket nyc-lax would be about 7k points with sw rather than 12.5k with every other carrier. its kinda like selling a flight voucher. But this allows the voucher to work on airtran flights as well.

    I’ve heard conflicting reports on whether the southwest companion pass works on airtran metal flights booked through southwest.com. Does anyone have personal experience or word from customer service?
