Million Mile Secrets reader MK is interested in the new offer for the Chase Ritz-Carlton card and commented:
Which airlines can you book through the Visa Infinite Discount Air Benefit site? Is Southwest excluded?
Great question, MK!
Tickets on most major US airlines can be booked through the Visa Infinite Discount Air Benefit site, but seats on a majority of the low-cost carriers (like Southwest!) can NOT.
You Can Use the Visa Infinite Discount Air Perk for Tickets on Most Major US Airlines, Like United Airlines
Here’s more about the Visa Infinite Discount Air Benefit that comes with the Chase Ritz-Carlton card.

Emily went to Cuba and loved seeing the architecture, plazas, and vintage cars!
This is excellent news if you collect miles on these airlines. Or have a way to offset the price of a ticket, like the $250 annual airline credit with Citi Prestige. Or the Barclaycard Arrival Plus, because you can use miles towards statement credits for $100+ travel purchases (including flights!).
Folks with the Southwest Companion Pass could also bring a friend or partner along with them for only the cost of taxes and fees!
