    Grade: B+

    Pros:
    -Earn points based on how much you spend.
    -Redeem points based on how much the fare actually costs (better availability)
    -Great credit card offers.
    -Redeem for flights on other airlines, to destinations not served by WN.

    Cons:
    -Elite statuses not as inviting as legacy carriers (and a bit harder to achieve, in my opinion)
    -No first class, so no upgrades.
    -No airline partners to earn points from.

    Hope this helps!
