America’s Favorite Budget Airline and Frequent Flyer Program


Savvy travelers everywhere already know that being a member of a frequent flyer loyalty program is the best way to afford and even upgrade your trips each year. While there are many frequent flyer programs out there to choose from, a recent poll conducted by Airfarewatchdog shows that frequent flyers are happiest with Southwest Airline‘s loyalty program. This should come as little surprise as Southwest also enjoys designation as America’s favorite budget airline.

So, what makes Southwest Airline’s frequent flyer program such a clear favorite? According to Airfarewatchdog’s founder, George Hobica, it’s the flexibility with which customers can use their points, and the amount of rewards they receive. Southwest loyalty customers can earn more free flights (as any number of points can be applied to any ticket, for yourself or a friend), Southwest’s points tend to get you further, and accumulated miles nearly never expire.
