Myers, Grand Rapids, Hartford/Springfield, Islip, Jacksonville, Louisville, Manchester, Mexico City, Montego Bay, Nassau, New York/LaGuardia, Norfolk, Oakland, Orange County, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Providence, Raleigh/Durham, Rochester, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Francisco, San Jose Del Cabo, San Jose, CA, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tampa Bay, Washington/Reagan National, and West Palm Beach.

By April you’ll be able to book all Airtran flights on Southwest.com.  And in 2014 Airtran will cease to exist.

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

Dani

I tried to book from NYC to CUN. Not working:(

dave

If I am not mistaken in general on codeshare flights baggage policy usaly goes on operating carrier baggage policy

Dan

@dave:
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.

It transfers over to AirTran if you try to book any international flight …

What will they do with AirTran first class?

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?
