Air Fares you can LUV ♥ $59 one-way

I have been flying Southwest Airlines since United abandoned Texas for their Chicago HQ, given that United has become like the SW cattle carrier. United has even copied their boarding in groups, though it makes no sense for United to board in groups because they have seat numbers.

It seems like everyone is in the United first boarding group, I am glad that our brave Military get this recognition and understand that disabled, children, elderly, credit card holders and Elite members all want to get on first, but that does not leave anyone in the second group. United Airlines lets you board in the first group even if you are not in first class. All you have to do is pay as little as $9 or have a United credit card.

You can buy Premier Access to let you enjoy the convenience of dedicated airport check-in lines, exclusive security lanes at select airports and priority boarding, so you can get to the gate, your seat, and the overhead bin sooner. Prices, start at $9, are segment-based.

SPG Elite Hotel Platinum members now get elite benefits when traveling with Delta, such as priority check-in, Priority Boarding and first checked bag free.

You can be one of the first to board on Southwest Airlines with the best available boarding pass. If you earn their highest Elite status, with 100 qualifying flights to get this “Companion Status”. Whomever you choose, as your Companion can fly with you when you have Companion Pass status. Simply fly 100 qualifying one-way flights or earn 110,000 Qualifying Points in one calendar year.
