This morning, Southwest Airlines has announced that your miles no longer come with an expiration date. Unfortunately, though, if you’re in the market for their valuable companion pass, it’s going to cost you just a little bit more.
Southwest really wanted to make a splash, and they sure did. I’ve got a blog post breaking down why this is a great offer for families as well as a podcast episode where Jen (our resident Southwest expert) and I dig in to it including how to keep the companion pass for 2020.
Hope you enjoy this week’s episode! We’ve got Seth from Paxex.Aero doing a deep dive on in-flight internet and Jen from Deals We Like talking about the Southwest Companion Pass. And, Seth and I get into it on a few current events.

Southwest apparently listened to the feedback from customers this week and rolled out a modification to their earlier change.

Travel patterns grow/evolve over time. Especially so since I got married and had two kids. Where Southwest didn’t fit neatly into our travel patterns years ago, it’s become more relevant lately.
