Southwest Airlines Co. operates Southwest Airlines (Southwest) and AirTran Airways (AirTran), major passenger airlines that provide scheduled air transportation in the United States and near-international markets. As of December 31, 2014, the company served 93 destinations in 40 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and 5 near-international countries, including Mexico (Cancun, Mexico City, and Cabo San Lucas/Los Cabos), Jamaica (Montego Bay), The Bahamas (Nassau), Aruba (Oranjestad), and Dominican Republic (Punta Cana). It operated a total of 665 Boeing 737 aircraft. Southwest principally provides point-to-point service, rather than the hub-and-spoke service provided by major U.S. airlines. Southwest’s point-to-point service has also enabled it to provide its markets with frequent, conveniently timed flights and low fares. Southwest offers 21 weekday roundtrips from Dallas Love Field to Houston Hobby, 9 weekday roundtrips from Washington Reagan to Chicago Midway, 11 weekday roundtrips from Phoenix to Las Vegas, and 14 weekday roundtrips from Los Angeles International to Oakland. Southwest complements these high-frequency routes with long-haul nonstop service between markets, such as Los Angeles and Nashville, Las Vegas and Orlando, San Diego and Baltimore, and Houston and New York LaGuardia. As of December 31, 2014, Southwest served 581 nonstop city pairs. International Service In 2014, the company fully converted AirTran international service into Southwest service. The company sells its first international itineraries to be flown by Southwest aircraft. Southwest offers service to Jamaica (Montego Bay), The Bahamas (Nassau), and Aruba (Oranjestad). Southwest offers international service to Mexico (Cabo San Lucas/Los Cabos and Cancun) and to Mexico City and Dominican Republic (Punta Cana). Business Traveler Amenities Southwest offers various products that have been designed to attract additional business/full fare travelers. Business Select: Southwest’s Business Select product includes perks, such as priority boarding, a higher frequent flyer point multiplier than other Southwest fares, priority ticket counter and security checkpoint access in select airports, and one complimentary adult beverage coupon for the day of travel (for Customers of legal drinking age). Fly By Priority Lanes: Southwest provides Fly By Priority Lane access for its Business Select Customers and Rapid Rewards A-List Members at its airports. As of December 31, 2014, Fly By Priority Lane Access was available at 78 airports. SWABIZ: SWABIZ is Southwest’s business travel reservation Web page. SWABIZ allows business travelers to plan, book, and purchase Ticketless Travel on Southwest and to obtain their lowest fares and maximum frequent flyer credit. AirTran offers Business Class on every flight. Ancillary Services and Fees During 2014, the company experiences revenue benefits from service offerings, such as Southwest’s EarlyBird Check-In and Pets Are Welcome on Southwest products. EarlyBird Check-In provides customers with automatic checkin so customers are checked in 12 hours before general boarding positions become available, improving customers' seat selection options. Southwest sells open priority boarding positions in the first 15 boarding positions within boarding group ‘A’ systemwide. Inflight Wi-Fi and Entertainment Southwest offers inflight satellite-based Wi-Fi service on all of its 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft.
