How I wish that there were an airport closer than BWI or Norfolk that Southwest would fly into or out of in the Virginia area! My dad uses a Rapid Rewards credit card and build free flights quickly. We were having a hard time finding a cheap enough flight and he let us use two of his flights. I booked the flights using the Rapid Rewards coupons, but then found cheaper flights. The nice thing with the Rapid Rewards coupon is you can cancel your reservation with no penalty at all. It was comforting to be able to reserve a flight for more than 24 hours without being totally locked (or risking huge penalties). If there were a Southwest airport closer, I would be working toward free flights all the time!
