Note on Blank Lines:
We do generate spreadsheets for Blank Lines! If you purchase a subscription for the first round files, you will receive your second round file automatically via e-mail at no additional charge as soon as our files are available (also available for download on the site when you log in).
Please note that our files will be available several hours after the bid lines are published by Crew Planning.
What SWAPtimizer is:
SWAPtimizer® -- the SWA Pilot Vacation Optimizer -- is the first tool available for pilots at Southwest Airlines to fully project all vacation pay, including Vacation Overlap (VO) pay, as you prepare to bid for your vacation month! Other tools project pay within the vacation week, but since the VO can pay as much as or more than the 26.25 minimum TFP of the vacation week itself, the SWAPtimizer enables you to see the TRUE vacation pay for each bid line, before you bid. Whether you're looking to maximize your total pay, time off, effective vacation length, or vacation pay, or if you're looking to optimize your bid based on multiple goals, we can help.
SWAPtimizer files are spreadsheets for Microsoft Excel or another spreadsheet program. For your base and vacation(s), you will see what each line will pay, your days off, the vacation pay (including projections for overlap as well as the vacation week itself), and a summary of what your month will look like. You can then sort the lines by various criteria to optimize your bid.
All files for the upcoming month are $20 each. Annual subscriptions are also available. All active Southwest pilots are invited to register, and you can view recent spreadsheets and our video help files at no charge.
