Airline Card After Bankruptcy

Filed for bankruptcy 3 years ago and have had excellent credit history since then. Never late on payments and pay them off every month. Capital One  upgraded me to a Venture Card but am wanting to get a Southwest Airlines card or US Airways card to build miles up. My FICO is 679. What are my chances?

No idea.  Odds used to be 0 with Chase if one had a BK reporting but recently some have reported being approved with a relatively recent BK.

I would take a look at the Barclays Arrival or the Barclays US Airways card. Barclays is BK friendly if you have some good payment history after the BK. I think both cards have some good sign up bonuses as well.

What current accounts do you have?

is this 679 a TU score?

Currently have Capital One Venture, Barclaycard Rewards and Mastercard Platinum. 679 is my FICO score. Is FICO the main one the company's use? The US Airways card is the one I really want.

I don't think they transfer into or out of partner cards... a few have been lucky to be able to I think but for the most part most have been told no.

Re: Airline Card After Bankruptcy

Yeah I figured they wouldn't do that. I'm gonna get a few things fixed in my credit report before I apply. It is showing late payments and I haven't had any.
