I like Southwest for a laundry list of reasons, two of which being two free checked bags with no strings attached and one of the best and most flexible change and cancellation policies. And they offer one of the best deals in domestic travel, the Companion Pass.

These days you can take Southwest outside of the lower 48 to Hawaii, Cuba, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Belize, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Aruba, and Mexico!
