Southwest has reversed their unannounced January 1, 2017 rewards program change that ended Companion Pass qualification for transferred points from hotel programs. The deadline for transferred points to qualify for a Companion Pass is march 31, 2017. The LUV is BACK!! I was able to log my wife as my companion, flying for the cost of taxes anywhere I fly through December 31, 2018. This is also true for reward travel; essentially doubling my point balance. This is awesome!!
