Southwest Airlines' extensive fleet consists of Boeing 737-300s, Boeing 737s, Boeing 737s and Boeing 737-800s.  
On May 2, 2011, Southwest Airlines completed the acquisition of AirTran Airways by purchasing all of the outstanding common stock, corporate identity and operating assets of AirTran Holdings, Inc., the former parent company of AirTran Airways. Southwest Airlines first announced the acquisition on September 27, 2010 and received final approval from the United States Department of Justice on April 27, 2011.
After acquiring AirTran Airways, Southwest began a codeshare agreement with AirTran on February 14, 2013. The agreement ended after AirTran became fully integrated into Southwest on December 28, 2014.

Frequent Flyer Program
Southwest Airlines operates a frequent flyer program called Rapid Rewards to reward its regular passengers with the airline. 
The original Rapid Rewards program offered one credit per one-way flight from an origin to a destination including any stops or connections on Southwest Airlines.
When 16 credits were accumulated in a 24-month period, Southwest awarded one free round-trip ticket that was valid for 12 months. On March 1, 2011, Rapid Rewards changed to a points system based on ticket cost. Members earn and redeem points based on a three-tier fare scale multiplier and the cost of the ticket. Changes also included no blackout dates, seat restrictions or expiring credits. It also adds more options to use points.

Southwest Airlines’ free bag policy has become part of its core identity

CAPA - Centre for Aviation senior analyst (the Americas) Lori Ranson, speaking at CAPA's 2017 Latin America Aviation Summit, stated (12-Sep-2017) that US low cost carrier Southwest Airlines is cleverly using ancillaries to differentiate itself, but without unbundling. While other US airlines are charging for checked bags, Southwest continues to include them within the price of tickets, She highlighted that while the airline may not be gaining revenue directly, the policy has become a major marketing tool promoting its brand. "The fact that Southwest does not charge for bags is now part of their core identity. To go against that now would create so much bad publicity. It's their philosophy now", she said.

Southwest donates plane to fly homeless animals from hurricane-ravaged Houston

Many victims of Hurricane Harvey sadly lost their homes — including quite a few who walk on four legs. When Texas shelters found themselves overrun with homeless pets after last month's storm, Southwest Airlines stepped in to help move dozens of animals across the country.

Southwest first partnered with Helen Woodward Animal Center of San Diego, California, in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy. Upon seeing the damage caused by Harvey, the shelter and airline quickly hooked up again. After operating several relief flights for customers and employees, Southwest donated a flight to transport about 60 cats and dogs from Houston to San Diego.


"The idea was to move animals who were already in the shelters when the hurricane hit and were now facing euthanization ... to make room for families' pets that become homeless after Harvey," explained Michelle Agnew, a spokesperson for Southwest.

On Aug. 31, the Helen Woodward staff flew to Houston's Operation Pets Alive (OPA!), where the homeless cats and dogs were being housed temporarily. The shelter staff determined how many animals were fit to fly and could be accommodated in California. Southwest then provided the aircraft to transport the pets on Sept. 5th.


Once in California, the animals received lots of love to help them recover from their ordeal.

"They're doing as well as they can considering the circumstances," said Mindy Wright, a representative of Helen Woodward Animal Center. "They were already in a tough situation, packed in close quarters without their normal routines or medications, and then had to go through the plane ride."

She continued, "By the time they got to us ... some aren't feeling well, some are recovering from trauma, and some are in line to get microchips, vaccinations, and other things we require before we can adopt them out."

The shelter is keeping an eye on the Harvey survivors, nursing the sick animals back to health and getting the others prepped for adoptions.

Wright is pleased to report that the first round of animals — including a trio of dogs named Larry, Curly and Moe, and a couple of "hound puppies with squishy faces"— went up for adoption on Saturday.

Both Agnew and Wright expressed interest in making a similar effort after Hurricane Irma, though they'll need to assess the situation before knowing more details.

As for the rest of the Harvey survivors, they're in good hands until they're ready to find their fur-ever homes.
