    Likely no hard data - or at least none which is not proprietary, but I was just wondering the extent to which CP's are earned BIS versus qualifying partner earning?

    They are hard to get. I fly southwest 2-3 times per week and it takes me about 10 months to earn the companion pass. It's easier if you do a ton of short hops. It's nice if you can get it.

    Their recent double mile promotion makes it a lot easier. As A+ preferred member you can earn at a rate of 36X a BS fare, which is effectively a 60% discount in points. No double points for CP but BS multiplies 12x and that adds up quickly.
