Southwest used to only be an intrastate airline, but as of October 2014 with the lifting of the Wright Amendment, Southwest now has non-stops across the country and as of late, they’re going international. Have you heard of the Southwest Effect? Check it out. Known for their laid-back culture, some of their flight attendants even become YouTube famous for their creative and entertaining in-flight announcements.

By April 2016, Southwest has over 90 destinations in the United States, Puerto Rico and abroad. Their frequent flyer program is called Rapid Rewards. They are not a part of any alliance nor do they have any airline partners. They are still maintaining the trophy for “bags fly free” – as you get up to two free checked bags with your flight. Their cancellation policy is also very flexible.
