I was wondering if Southwest will make it available for the customer to rebook a reservation with a companion pass linked to the reservation. I know you can cancel the companion's reservation and then rebook. However, my companion does not have AList status and I buy the Early Bird. Therefore, if I cancel the reservation, I lose the Early Bird and have to buy it again.
The only way I can change the reservation and not lose the Early Bird is to call customer service and have them change the reservation. I usually do the rebooking if the points required for the flight decrease.
I just don't like bothering customer service. Thanks for any advice.
You aren't bothering them, this is a great reason to call. If your change isn't urgent, then you can be strategic about calling - don't bother during a snow storm, and maybe in the morning would be better.
