    Good info, thanks!

    We have the companion pass through the end of next year (got personal and business cards to earn the points), so we got our two May MCO tickets for 14,000 points round-trip!

    I'm only 2 round-trip tickets away from A-List preferred for the rest of this year and 2019. As my schedule is now, will have 46 flights between now and Xmas. Do you think its worth booking 2 trips to get this status? I know the points you can receive (and free internet!) is a nice perk.

    If you have elite status with a different airline, Southwest might promote you to A-List immediately. Check it out HERE.

    You have 46 flights in the next 85 days, and you only need four to get A-List Preferred. Why on earth would you book four additional just to get the status sooner?

    Sorry, that came out wrong!!! As its scheduled now, by the end of the year I will have completed 46 flights. Not 46 between now and the end of the year!!
