Southwest, JetBlue Lead Average Reward Price Rankings Among Five Major US Frequent Flyer Programs
Low-cost carriers Southwest and JetBlue continue to offer US flyers the lowest average reward seat pricing, despite an industry shift to dollar-based rather than mileage-based loyalty points accrual. The rankings for the two airlines mirror the results from 2015—and from the year before, when miles flown was the universal accrual method.  These findings derive from the IdeaWorksCompany annual Switchfly Reward Seat Availability Survey. In May the firm released reward seat availability rankings for 25 of the world’s largest airlines.
