**A+ Rewards credits expire one year after their posting date as indicated in your online account rewards summary. A+ Rewards Elite members’ and A+ Rewards Chase Cardmembers’ credits expire two years after their posting date. All A+ Credits that haven’t expired as of November 1, 2014, will be converted to Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Points after the end of the A+ Rewards Program.
Ways To Redeem
After only three roundtrips in Business Class or four in coach, you’ve already earned a one-way coach flight on AirTran Airways. It’s just that easy.
|Reward A+ Rewards Credit Value|
|One-way Business Class upgrade||4|
|One-way coach flight||8|
|One-way Business Class flight||16|
|Annual companion pass||100|
3 Business roundtrips = 1 one-way coach flight
4 coach roundtrips = 1 one-way coach flight
You don’t have to wait to earn a roundtrip flight to enjoy a reward flight. You can redeem for one-way travel even sooner and take advantage of our everyday, low one-way fares for the rest of your trip. For roundtrip travel, just redeem two one-way rewards. Look for even more opportunities to earn A+ credits in the future from AirTran Airways and our partners.
